Having grown up in Southern Idaho, I fished some of that area’s famous rivers and streams, including the Snake, Salmon, Boise and Owyhee Rivers and Tributaries. In 1992 I moved further west to Oregon’s Willamette Valley and have been chasing steelhead and salmon species ever since. My wife, Lori, 8 children and myself currently reside on the banks of the Little North Fork of the Santiam River in Western Oregon; which offers a multitude of steelhead and trout fishing opportunities.
My passion for fly fishing runs deep, so in 2008 I started Riverwood Flies , a company that proudly offers products made for people who fish, by people who fish. More than just a marketing slogan, it’s what we are all about. We strive to produce quality products that appeal to the fish first, the angler second. We pay close attention to every detail of the fly you are going to purchase.
Riverwood Flies and Jigs are made using the finest of materials and tried-and-true tying methods and techniques. These are not – superstore fly bin, mass produced by some child labor factory in a third world country – flies and jigs. These are the flies and jigs that I tie and fish with. They are flies “field tested” by hundreds of satisfied customers, guides, and my “Pro-Staff”; my 8 children.
I am fortunate enough to be part owner in Oregon Outdoor Excursions; a professional and licensed guiding service. I offer my guiding services on the Breitenbush River, North Santiam River, the Little North Santiam and the Siletz. The flies I offer are what most would call, “guide’s special”… simply put, they are productive flies. They are the same flies I use with my clients.
