St.Brandons Atoll Fly Fishing

Vice-President/Guide

Chris grew up in Princeton, New Jersey spending his youthful summers chasing finicky trout in the Catskills of upstate New York and quickly developing a curiosity and eagerness to head West. While attending Trinity College in Hartford, CT, Chris saw his opportunity in 2010. Following his Sophomore year, he packed his station wagon and drove to Idaho without anything planned other than WCA’s Western Rivers Guide School in Island Park. The next week of learning, fishing, rowing and camaraderie would alter Chris’ life path more than he ever imagined. Chris was offered the last shop staff job or “summer internship” as it was once titled for the 2010 season and there was absolutely zero hesitation in his immediate acceptance.
Since that fateful summer of 2010, Chris graduated from Trinity College and exclusively worked at WCA in almost every capacity the company offers. From Intern to Shop Staffer to Assistant Outfitting Manager to Guide and Destination Travel Manager to COO and now Vice President, Chris has a deeply involved and intimate knowledge for WorldCast Anglers as a business and a community of guides, clients and anglers alike. This knowledge is only matched by his personal passion and love for the company, the local community and the special destination that is Teton Valley, ID. It has always felt somewhat surreal for Chris as he found his dream job and his dream company at the earliest point in his professional career. This does not go unappreciated by Chris as his gratitude and positivity is imbued into his attitude and work for the company on a daily basis.
Chris currently oversees the day to day operations of WCA’s prolific Outfitting program, the  seasonal employment opportunities at WCA, the Destination Travel program, the Western Rivers Guide School and whatever challenges may arise running a logistically intensive, seasonal small business.
When not on the river or in the fly shop, Chris can be found living the good life of Teton Valley with his girlfriend Beth, snuggling with their Chihuahua Pug (Chug) Blue and planning his next international fishing adventure.

Chief Operating Officer

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.

Cliff Knight was born and raised in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Rome, GA. There he spent his youth fly fishing for striped bass in his backyard river, the Etowah River. While studying at the University of Georgia, Cliff spent his summers fishing around Jackson Hole, Wyoming, learning everything he could about fishing around the Tetons. Cliff graduated college in 2015 and moved to Victor, Idaho full time. The first thing he did when he moved to Victor was attend the Western Rivers Guide School with WorldCast. After a summer spent managing the WorldCast Cottonwood Camp on the South Fork and working in the WorldCast Fly Shop, Cliff began guiding trout fishing full time for WorldCast. During his time guiding, Cliff developed a passion for fishing the turbulent whitewater stretches of the Teton River and Henry’s Fork rivers. Additionally, Cliff spent the winter of 2019-2020 managing Casa Blanca Fishing Lodge on Ascension Bay, Mexico where he learned the art of permit fishing and running a guide operation on a remote island.  With a few successful years of guiding trout fishing for WorldCast under his belt, Cliff has made a natural transition into a management role with WorldCast. In this role, Cliff focuses on managing WorldCast’s domestic fishing operations, overnight camps, and building lasting relationships with clientele. In his off time, Cliff can be found ski-patrolling at Grand Targhee Resort, bird hunting with his dog Alan, and exploring remote fishing opportunities around the Tetons.
