Terry Gunn
book

Bio: Terry was born and raised on a farm in Oklahoma. When not working on the farm, he was always fishing in one of the local creeks, rivers or ponds. His grandfather, Troy Holsted, was a devoted fan of Zane Grey and decided in the 1930′s that if Zane Grey was a fly fisherman, then Troy Holsted should also be a fly fisherman. In the 1960′s, his grandfather built a cabin in Taylor Park, Colorado and Terry spent his early years walking the high mountain streams watching his fly fishing mentor cast a Montague cane fly rod to rising fish. Every summer Terry still walks the same streams casting the same rod followed by his son, Troy. SHOW MORE >

Terry Gunn is co-owner and founder of Lees Ferry Anglers Fly Shop and Guide Service and Cliff Dwellers Lodge in Marble Canyon. Terry has been a full-time fishing guide since 1983 and is an internationally recognized fly fishing expert, author, photographer, and speaker. Terry has fished around the world in both fresh and saltwater. In 1986, he co-founded Crystal Creek Lodge, considered by many to be one of Alaska’s finest fly-out fishing lodges. He also started Baja Anglers, a fly fishing charter boat operation and retail store in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. He is a consultant to several leading manufacturers of fly fishing equipment and fishing lodges. He has held or holds 10 IGFA world records, all on flyrod both fresh and saltwater.

Terry’s wildlife and fly fishing photographs have appeared in most all of the outdoor magazines as well as books, journals, newspapers, calendars and brochures. He has been on the masthead of Fly Fisherman Magazine and Fish Alaska as Contributing Photographer. He is a recognized author and has published many technical as well as destination fly fishing articles for several magazines.

Wendy Gunn
book

Bio: It is unlikely that any woman in history has ever caught more fish, larger fish or more diverse fish than Wendy Hanvold Gunn. She has set and still holds IGFA World Records for the size of her catch - she was the first woman to land a striped marlin on a fly; and in fly-casting distance competition, twice exceeding 100-feet with a 5-weight line.

Gunn's travels to achieve fly-fishing's pinnacle look like a page from National Geographic: Australia for black marlin; New Guinea for black bass, saratoga (or spotted barramundi) and black marlin; Belize for bonefish, permit and tarpon (including two Grand Slams consisting of all three species in one day); Costa Rica for tarpon; Mexico for marlin, wahoo, roosterfish, dorado, yellowfin tuna and Pacific cubera snapper, Florida for tarpon and permit; Argentina for golden dorado and trout; and Alaska for rainbow trout, all five salmon species, grayling and northern pike. SHOW MORE >

Wendy, with her husband Terry, owns Lees Ferry Anglers and Cliff Dwellers Lodge in Marble Canyon, Arizona where she is general manager of operations. Lees Ferry Anglers is one of the largest fly-fishing outfitters in the world employing 14 full-time guides. Cliff Dwellers Lodge is a year-round lodge located at the base of 294,000 acre Vermilion Cliffs National Monument on the road that connects the North and South rims of the Grand Canyon.

In addition to cover photos on virtually every fly-fishing magazine, Wendy has been featured on television as the series host of "Fishing the West", "Americas Outdoor Journal", and "Fly Fish TV Magazine" which has aired on FOX, OLN and The Outdoor Channel. Her two fly-fishing videos are An "Introduction to Fly Fishing", and "An Introduction to Fly Casting".

An ardent conservationist, she is active in Trout Unlimited and other groups as well as Casting for Recovery, an organization that helps women recover from breast cancer. < SHOW LESS

Bob Mallard
book

Bio: Bob Mallard has fly fished for over 35 years. He has owned and operated a full-service fly shop in central Maine for the last 10+ years. Prior to this, Bob spent 20+ years in information technology and business consulting. His writing has appeared in local, state, regional and national; sporting, fly fishing and conservation publications. Bob ties flies and teaches fly tying in the winter. He has taught casting as well.

Bob spends over 100 days a year on the water. The streams, rivers and ponds of Maine are Bob’s home waters. His fly shop is located on the fabled Kennebec River. He also fishes New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont and Connecticut whenever he gets the chance -- which is often. Bob has travelled extensively in search of trout logging time on the water in New England, NY, NJ, PA, VA, WA, OR, MD, AZ, NM, UT, CO, WY, ID, MT and Canada. He heads west most years to fish for 3-4 weeks. SHOW MORE >

While predominantly a trout bum, Bob does chase some striped bass -- but that is about it. From small streams to big rivers, from small ponds to large lakes, from freestone to spring creek, from flats to surf; Bob fishes it all. He is as comfortable with a #2/0 deceiver or mouse as he is with a #2 streamer or #22 dry. He is as likely to be found pursuing 6” brookies as he is 20” browns. Bob rows, wades, tubes and paddles -- with very little time spent with a motor...

Bob is an unapologetic modern fly fisher and fly tackle junky. You won’t find any bamboo in his quiver, tweed in his closet, scotch in his flask, or a pipe hanging out of his mouth. He prefers packs to vests, large arbor to small arbor, drags to click-and-pawl, and graphite to most anything else -- with the exception of the occasional glass rod where it makes sense. He likes colored reels, titanium reel seats, textured lines, strike indicators and articulated streamers. He drinks beer not scotch -- albeit good beer. He likes his cigars. Although a history buff, Bob clearly prefers technology and performance to tradition. He owns 20+ fly fishing outfits at any time -- changing tackle as often as many change their cloths... He has rowed a driftboat for twenty years -- one of the first in New England. < SHOW LESS

Species of Focus: Brook, Brown, Rainbow and Cutthroat trout; as well as the occasional Stripers (catching big browns on streamers or hoppers is one of his favorite things)

Marc Payne
book

Bio: Marc Payne is a passionate lover of the outdoors. He is a writer, angler, teacher, and builder/restorationist of bamboo rods. His writing appears in several national periodicals and he is a columnist for Southern Trout Magazine. In the summer of 2012, Marc was selected to work with Trout Unlimited, The National Park Service and The Yellowstone Park Foundation after winning a writing competition in conjunction with Simms and The Outdoor Blogger Network. The focus of the trip surrounded the removal of lake trout from Yellowstone Lake and stream research throughout the National Park. SHOW MORE >

The streams of The Great Smoky Mountains National Park are Marc's home waters, but it is not unusual to see him on larger southern rivers like The South Holston or smaller streams in the southeast such as Helton Creek or The Nantahala. Not only does he write about fly fishing in the south, he teaches fly fishing techniques and his Riverdale Classic Bamboo fly rods have been used throughout the United States with much success.

Marc doesn't look at the catch as the end game. He realizes that it is the bigger picture of location, wildlife, and the stream itself that help make the sport of fly fishing the stuff of legend.

Marc is an excellent communicator and his presentations on the sport of fly fishing combine humor, history, education, and conservation in a way that informs without being a lecture.

Oliver White
book

Bio: In a way, fly fishing saved Oliver White. A devastating skiing accident while he was an undergrad at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill fractured most of the major bones on one side of his body. His year-long rehabilitation - really, the only action he could accomplish - was fly casting. The simple, rhythmic motion helped heal his body and instilled a passion that gave his life a direction. He began pursuing that passion immediately after graduating with a degree in philosophy.

Oliver earned his stripes guiding fly anglers on the challenging streams and rivers of western North Carolina and east Tennessee. He quickly took the skills he learned and began traversing the world - Alaska, Chile, Venezuela before settling his guiding career between Jackson Hole, Wyoming and the fabled Rio Grande in Tierra del Fuego. It was there that a neophyte angler from New York City, a hedge fund owner who had won the trip at a charity auction, came into the lodge. The other guides wanted no part of this greenhorn, but Oliver was happy to take on the challenge. It proved to be a life-altering decision. SHOW MORE >

By week's end the client, Bill Ackman, had learned to fish - in fact his first fish on a fly was monster 22lb brown trout. In turn, he had offered Oliver a job with his firm, Pershing Square Capital Management. Clients often make hollow offers but this one was followed with a crate of business books awaited Oliver when he returned to Jackson for the summer season; accompanying the books, a letter from Ackman that asked Oliver to contact him when he finished reading. Oliver spent the summer guiding, reading, and contemplating. After finishing the season and the books he phoned Ackman, which resulted in a job offer as an analyst at Ackman's firm, Pershing Square Capital. It would be an intense, two-year education of financial markets, business, and accounting.

Ackman urged Oliver to pursue a business degree but Oliver had other ideas. He was ready to flex his own entrepreneurial instincts and saw opportunity on Abaco in the Bahamas to get back to his roots and passion for the outdoors and combine his newly honed business acumen. His fishing skills lead him to the place, his time in New York taught him how to run the numbers, structure the deal and close it.

With Ackman's support, Oliver put the deal together and built Abaco Lodge, linking with the Nervous Waters franchise of lodges. His natural marketing sense coupled with his industry relationships helped to land an ESPN2 series, Pirates of the Flats, that coincided with the Lodge's opening. That exposure coupled with consistent magazine coverage helped keep the Lodge full its first year and amazingly finish in the black -virtually unheard-of for a start-up.

Oliver himself has been the subject of numerous magazine stories, including a 2012 multi-page spread in Forbes. In addition to overseeing the operations at Abaco and Bair's Lodge on South Andros, he regularly leads fishing trips all over the world, including a recent expedition into Guyana where his group had the rare fortune to catch the pre-historic Arapaima on fly. Currently Oliver is working on his first book with Stonefly Press, cranking out a few articles, and still finding time to live the dream. < SHOW LESS
