    Biography
    Hello! My name is Daniel and I am a HS biology/anatomy teacher and debate coach during the school year, and a Fly Fishing guide for "Solitary Angler" in the summers. I am lucky to call Wyoming's Green, Hams Fork, Fontenelle and Smiths Fork rivers home. I also fool around on Lake Flaming Gorge some. My wife knows how to sling line too, and together we feel very lucky to be raising our kids here!

    I grew up fishing the waters of Minnesota for the standard warm water species and played as often as I could on the North Shore of Superior with trout/salmon/steelies. I did my undergrad work in Iowa (where I chased fish on the Cedar River, hunted upland birds and waterfowl, and missed way to much class), did a 4-year stint teaching in Chicago and getting grad school done (fishing on park ponds and Lake Michigan saved my sanity). In the summers during this phase of life I spent 9 seasons guiding young fishermen in the Black Hills at a youth camp.

    Wanting to be out west again and out of the city, I finally landed my current teaching position in Wyoming (more than 20 years ago now) where I float my beloved Green River south of Pinedale Wy as often as I can. I also hunt waterfowl & grouse (I'm a bird dog guy), elk, deer, and antelope (archery and rifle). I camp, backpack, and mountain bike too - but its all about getting into the backcountry to fish and hunt.

    This is my 24th year of teaching and coaching debate. I deeply love what I do. Teaching is good for my heart. Debate is good for my mind. Fishing is good for my soul.

    My wife and I have been married almost 5 years. She is my best friend. Together we have 4 kids; a 10-year old daughter, 2 16-year old boys, and a 19-year old daughter in college. Our house is full of life with all the kids and pets and activities.

    It is a good life. Better than I deserve, more than I hoped for, and one I do not take for granted.
