Scotty grew up fishing in the east bay area for bass, bluegill, catfish and trout at around 8 years old. He was gifted a fly rod set up at around 11 years old and would take it to the rivers in the foothills any chance he got. The first time his elk hair caddis hit the water on the Stanislaus River he had a small rainbow trout come and grab it and he was hooked on fly fishing.
Scotty moved to South Lake Tahoe at the age of 18 to snowboard and attend the local junior college. The first week he was here he was in Tahoe Fly Fishing Outfitters buying new reels and gaining knowledge on all the amazing water to explore around Tahoe. Scotty's love for snowboarding and fly fishing run deep. He spends most of his winters riding his snowboard as much as possible. Exploring new terrain and pushing the limit of his riding.
The same is for fly fishing. He enjoys getting out to new waters and exploring what unfamiliar zones have to offer. Over the last few years he has pushed his fly fishing abilities to the next level. Purchasing a drift boat and exploring all the coastal rivers and teaching himself how to Spey cast for large sea-run fish. Scotty fishes year-round in California. The best days for him are spent floating down a river with a couple of friends searching for fish. He loves taking people out and teaching them how to enjoy the outdoors while learning new techniques about fly fishing.
