Slade started at an early age in Casper, Wyoming chasing fish for fun. Every second he had free was devoted to fishing the Platte River or hunting on his family’s ranch. You can find Slade most any day of the week fishing until dark with his yellow lab Tuna or relaxing with his wife Danielle on the river. Having split time between Montana and Wyoming, Slade has done his fair share of guiding and spent tons of times behind the oars. Slade enjoys teaching the finer points of swinging around a Spey rod as well as effective streamer fishing and deaddrifting techniques.

Slade’s passion for the sport is truly contagious. One day on the river with him will only leave you wanting to go right back out.
