I started fly-fishing when I was four years old. My dad would take me fishing for Salmon and Steelhead every chance he got on the fabled Pere Marquette, and Muskegon rivers in Northern Michigan.

I love catching trout, and I love a great day out on the water with friends. When not harassing trout with hooks, I spend my time with my daughter Ophelia discussing high flows, and lost fish.

Zach Barrett Trip Request
Zach grew up in North Georgia chasing bass on Lake Lanier and trout fishing in the Smoky Mountains with his dad and grandfather. He cut his teeth guiding throughout the Rocky Mountains and now spends the winter and spring guiding anglers amongst the flats of the Lower Florida Keys in search of Bonefish, Tarpon, and Permit. The experience he has gained across the map makes Zach a great match for beginners and kids, as well as seasoned vets
