    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. I typically am on the water 90+/- days per year, between fishing with clients and friends/family. My wife likes to sling line too once in a while, 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 Lake Superior with trout/salmon/steelies. I did my undergrad work in Iowa (where I chased fish on the Cedar River, hunted birds, 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 and families in the SD Black Hills at a dude ranch.

    Wanting to be out west again, I finally landed my current teaching position in Wyoming (more than 20 years ago now) where I float my beloved Green River as often as I can. I also hunt a little.

    This is my 25th 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 8 years. She is my best friend. Together we have 4 kids; a 13-year old daughter, 2 19-year old boys, and a 22-year old daughter. Our house is full of life with all the kids and pets and stuff.

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