Living in San Francisco, a city with a rich history and tradition of fly fishing, Tyler splits his time between leading a K-8 school and adventuring throughout the American West in search of native salmonids.   

His deep passion for the outdoors was forged during family camping trips in the Bay Area, while stalking bass on North Texas farm ponds, and over countless road trips with friends.  

While the pursuit of trout and steelhead provide for adventures, stories, and friendships; he recognizes the importance of conservation as a way to protect the ecosystems and fish we all enjoy.
