For Tyler, spending time in the wild places brings things into alignment! He grew up in Colorado North of Fort Collins in a family that valued outdoor pursuits of all kinds. He spent countless days fly fishing Laramie Plains lakes, North Park, Yampa River and "The Reef" and "Mile" on The North Platte River in Wyoming. Falls were spent packing into the wilderness areas on horseback chasing elk followed by a Nebraska deer hunt and some years squeezing in a Wyoming deer hunt! Winters were spent skiing the front range and hunting geese out of a buried pit east of Fort Collins. He followed his life partner, Sierra, to Idaho who supported his dream of building a fly shop, and outfitter business. The crossover from riggin' horses to riggin' boats for whitewater and fishing trips was some what seamless. Running boats instead of horse means no more feeding livestock which leads to more time angling and and hiking with guests and friends! I truly look forward to sharing wild places with wonderful people.
