Captain Zack has been fishing in the mid-atlantic region for as long as he can remember. He grew up spending summers in Oriental, North Carolina where he learned how to catch fish, clean fish and shuck oysters on his own at a young age. As a child, the only books he would thoroughly read were about fish and he developed a lifelong dream of becoming a fishing guide. After receiving a Biology degree from Colorado College in 2012 this dream came true and Zack began guiding fly fishing trips near Aspen Colorado.
Zack returned to his home waters back east in 2014 and worked at Horn Point Laboratory for 3 years, studying oysters and learning about the complex migration patterns on Chesapeake Bay. During that time Zack acquired a boat and began to fully immerse himself in the Chesapeake Bay fishery, chasing various species on fly and light tackle throughout the bay.
Zack is currently a teacher at Gunston School where he teaches students about Marine Biology and continues to pursue a lifelong dedication to connecting people with the water.
