Brian’s love of fishing started at an early age, encouraged by his father. After many years exploring the bigger rivers and smaller warm water streams, Brian started Susquehanna River Guides in 1993 as a way to share his love of the rivers and fly-fishing with others. Today clients have come from every reach of the United States, Canada, as well as Europe have come to South Central Pennsylvania to discover the thrill of fly-fishing for smallmouth bass and other warm water fishes.

Brian is a speaker at many local and regional clubs and organizations, as well as many fishing and outdoor shows. Numerous publications, both local and national have featured Brian and Susquehanna River Guides.

As an author Brian has contributed to books and is one of the co-authors of “Keystone Fly Fishing Guide” and is working on a new book coming out on smallmouth bass.

Brian is also an accomplished fly tier, and is on the pro staff for Holly Flies.

When Brian is not on the water, he enjoys spending time with his wife Rene in their home in South Central Pennsylvania.
