Info On Your Fishing Guide
Born in Europe, Chris was introduced to his first fishing trip at the early age of 3. There was something special about that day, because to this date, he still remembers it like it was yesterday. It changed his life forever. For Chris, fishing has been a way of life, and he has been actively involved in the guiding industry for almost 15 years, both as a successful business owner and professional sport fishing guide.
His passion for fishing, his love for the outdoors, his drive to succeed, and his belief in a high standard of hospitality and customer service, are all elements that he strives to bring to every guided outing. Having said that, he expects nothing less from the Bluewater guiding team.
Chris is a full-time professional fishing guide and owner of Bluewater Rockies Sportfish Guiding Co.
