Description: 

Caleb picked up a fly-rod for the first time at the age of thirteen on the Provo River. He cut his teeth fly fishing on the crystal spring creeks of Long Island, as well as the famed Beaverkill and Willowemoc of the Catskills. Since then, he has traveled the world in pursuit of his passion and it has brought him to some incredible waters. He has targeted Steelhead and Salmon on the Salmon River in Pulaski, NY, Rainbow trout on the Yakima River in Washington State and the freestone streams of Argentina, Bonefish on the flats of Belize, and Brown and Rainbow trout on the South Platte. He splits his time guiding out of Denver and traveling to write about the conservational aspects of fly-fishing. There is nothing Caleb loves more than teaching people the right way to get involved in the sport of fly-fishing. His attention to detail, and educational style of guiding will ensure you leave the river
