Tyler grew up in the Midwest chasing everything from bass, walleye and panfish of the local waters in Indiana and Iowa to the native brookies and other wild trout of the rivers and streams in northern Michigan. His passion for the outdoors is rooted and was shaped in the pursuit of the Eagle Scout rank during his years as a Boy Scout. These outdoor skills were honed while on a NOLS semester in the Southwest, also solidifying the need to move to the rivers and mountains of the West. This dream came to light in 2003, heading out to Jackson after graduating from Purdue University. Starting his time with WorldCast Anglers as a host at the famous South Fork Hilton, this relationship grew while managing the Jackson Hole Orvis for the next many years. Tyler graduated from the Western Rivers Guide School and became a guide while hosting at The South Fork Hilton a few years later. During those next few years, the saltwater bug brought him down to the Keys of Florida for a couple winters. Learning another aspect of fishing retail there, he also became an instructor at the Orvis Fly Fishing School of Key Largo all while exploring the massive Everglades to the flats of the Keys. Tyler recently served as Lodge Manager at Deep Water Cay in the Bahamas. Living in another country brought on tons of great learning experiences and allowed for many days of chasing bonefish and permit. It also reinforced the love for the USA and especially the yearning for the rivers and mountains of the West again. He is excited to call Teton Valley his home and proud to be the Retail Manager of WorldCast Anglers.
