I caught my first striper in the California Delta at 10 years of age. A friend and I would take a bus to the hot spots on the San Francisco beaches, many times coming home with limits of 10-12lb schoolie fish. I developed a passion for stripers at a very early age. I remember watching an angler battling a 30 plus pound striper on a hand line and could not believe its power.
Over the past 25 years I have devoted myself to catching and learning about stripers. Most of the fish have been caught on the fly but I have to admit I am enjoying re-learning about conventional fishing techniques. I also feel it will make me a better fly fisherman.
I have my Coast Guard license and Department of Fish and Game guiding license. I am bonded and properly insured for guiding. I have been certified by the Red Cross for CPR and First Aid.
My education includes graduating from Riordan High School (SF), and the University of Santa Clara ('68). I married my college sweetheart (44 years) and have three children who are all married and have provided us with seven beautiful grand children (so far!).
I have owned my own business for the past 25 years, so I know the value of and how to get along with my clients and customers.
My goal is to provide quality fishing opportunities coupled with a guided trip customized to meet your needs and maximize your fishing enjoyment. This trip is about you!
Lets go fishing!
