Vern says there is nothing like being “in tune” with nature on a beautiful trout stream or working his
Vizsla dog for bird hunting.
As a flyfishing guide, his most rewarding activity is to see a client learn to flyfish and catch Trout in the
beautiful fly waters of Southern Utah where he has spent much of his time over the last 30 years. Vern’s
famous saying is: “Once you learn how to flyfish, you will never go back to fishing any other way.”
Being a Colorado native he has spent many enjoyable days fishing much of Colorado, but, especially the
San Luis Valley and Rio Grande River tributaries. In addition to Colorado, he has flyfished and hunted on
3 Continents and five countries, including most of the Western States.
During the fall months you will often find him guiding for Migratory Waterfowl or Upland Game Birds,
with a well-trained Vizsla dog named “Raven”.
Vern has had a successful business career, but now enjoys his passion for the outdoors and
Auctioneering. He is an accomplished Auctioneer specializing in Charity auctions…he particularly enjoys
auctioning for the sports groups.
