Duane began fly fishing in the mountain lakes and streams in Arizona over forty years ago. He has been fly fishing Colorado since 1982, and spent the majority of his days guiding on the Front Range, specifically the South Platte tailwaters.
As a former teacher and coach, Duane relies on his ability to breakdown the finer points of angling to help his clients quickly master the art of fly fishing. Duane has written The Fly Fishers’ Playbook, A Systematic Approach to Nymph Fly Fishing, and is currently in the process of completing the 2nd edition of the book that will release in early 2015.
When he’s not guiding, writing ,filming, or speaking, you’ll notice Duane on some river, somewhere. Don’t let his laid-back approach fool you, when he’s on the river his attention to detail and building-block approach to fishing is calm yet intense. Although his motto is “Fear No Water”, you’ll share the sights, sounds, and joys that come from simply being in the great outdoors.
