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 reveal to them the intricacies the frontier country of Alaska can hold. Josh is also an accomplished flytier and developer, tying many of his own flies for guests.
Josh spends his time in the winter as a Washington State Air National Guardsman and spends time with his wife Carrie and their two labradors, Wallace and Artemis.
