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 that can only be found in the frontier country of Alaska. Josh is also an accomplished fly tier and spends some of his spare time developing new flies. He really enjoys tying flies and can often be found at the bench, putting another new fly together for a guest.
Josh spends his time in the winter as a Washington State Air National Guardsman lives in Wasilla Alaska and spends time with his wife Carrie and their two Labradors, Wallace and Artemis.
