Matt was born in Pocatello but raised in Boise. He has a business degree from BSU. His hobbies include hunting in the fall and skiing and snowmobiling in the off season.
Matt started fly fishing with his grandpa when he was 10 or 11. They mostly fished high mountain lakes.
His favorite water is, cold, clean and top secret!
Matt’s favorite species to chase is steelhead because of how difficult they are to find and catch. Which leads to his favorite trip of the year being the annual TRR guide steelhead trip to Washington.
His most memorable fishing moment was when he swung up his first steelhead. It was 5 or 6 years ago on the Grande Ronde in Oregon.
Matt lives in Driggs with his wife Kelsey and their adorable rescue Tilly.
