Zach is a lifelong trout fisherman and grew up fishing in rivers near his hometown of Twin Falls Idaho, including Silver Creek and the Big Lost. His favorite fish changes almost daily, but usually, it is a trout or bonefish. Zach spends his winters in the Florida Keys, where he is chasing flats species as well as peacock and largemouth bass. His fly rod of choice is the Sage X with a Lamson light-speed reel. His favorite flies to tie are small dries and he would rather get skunked than fish a worm.
