Greg was born into a fishing family but did not pick up a fly rod until the age of 12. “Up until then, all I needed was a 9 foot bamboo pole with a 10 foot section of monofilament tied to the tip. No reel necessary, just a hooked worm and a bobber.”
Spending his summers at his grand-parents house on the pan-handle of Florida, Greg’s first experience with a fly rod was casting poppers to pan fish, but quickly moved to largemouth bass and various saltwater species. At the age of 22 when he moved to Colorado, he realized his passion for fly fishing for various species of trout. Since then, this passion has grown and now he loves to target any species that swims and has scales; scales being optional.
With a passion for travel, adventure and fly fishing, Greg has travelled to and fished many exotic locations. He has enjoyed angling in over 13 countries targeting many different species with a fly rod. The list includes Botswana (where he lived for approx. 2 years) for Tiger fish, Mozambique for King Fish, and Chilean Patagonia for monster Brown and Rainbow Trout among many others. The list of countries continues to grow. Along with guiding on the Chattahoochee Tailwater, Greg has spread his love of adventure and travel to encompass Alaska where he spends the summer months guiding the Bristol Bay Region for everything from Rainbow trout to Dolly Varden to Sockeye and Silver Salmon.
“More than anything, I enjoy sharing fly fishing and helping beginner and intermediate anglers, along with young people feel the excitement of catching their first fish on a fly rod. I love my home waters of the Chattahoochee and miss it immensely when not on it” If not guiding, you can find him either planning his next adventure or drifting down the Chattahoochee Tailwater.
