Josh grew up in Western Oklahoma chasing bass and crappie. When he was 18, he enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and spent 11 years there, which led him to Alaska.
During his time off, Josh cut his teeth on Alaska fishing in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley. After fishing in that majestic area, Josh wanted to give back, so he started guiding. Josh’s passion is showing people new places to fish and revealing to them the intricacies the frontier country of Alaska can hold. Josh is also an accomplished fly tier and developer, tying many of his own flies for guests.
Josh spends his winters as a Washington State Air National Guardsman and spends time with his wife, Carrie, and their two labradors, Wallace and Artemis.
