His knowledge of the area’s backcountry and river drainages gives him the opportunity to take people fishing to places that are truly unique and pristine. A safe and authentic Alaskan fishing experience is what he strives for; making a trip that will never be forgotten. “There is something about walking through the wilderness on a game trail to get to a secret fishing hole that makes my trips unique.” Corey is passionate about his profession as a fisherman and guide, taking pride in sharing his knowledge and experience with every angler that visits Alaska. He treats each client with the same respect and openness everyday of the season.
