In addition to owning and operating Emerald Water Anglers a Seattle fly shop, guide service, and global travel outfitter, Dave joins T&T in an ambassador position. Dave is well versed in our product line and knows how well it fits into the fisheries in the Washington area. With Dave's deep involvement in all things fly fishing in the Seattle, our partnership is as organic as it gets. We're excited to see this relationship with Dave evolve and look forward to his feedback regarding our DNA Spey, Exocett SS, and Exocett series rods. We have high expectations for Dave as he acts as an extension of T&T to our friends out West and know he'll represent our brand faithfully in all of his fishing endeavors.
About Dave: At a young age, Dave’s father introduced him to fishing and sparked a lifelong passion to experience and enjoy life in the great outdoors. Growing up in Eugene, Oregon, his stomping grounds were and remain legendary namesakes such as Crane Prairie and Hosmer Lakes as well as the Deschutes, McKenzie, and Umpqua Rivers to name a few. While Dave quickly discovered the thrill of having a fish on, it was the awe of his surroundings that instilled his deep passion for fishing and conservation. Dave has dedicated his professional life to the fly fishing industry and has spent the last twenty-plus years relentlessly trying to surpass expectations as a guide, outfitter owner, conservationist, and fly fishing ambassador. Dave is quick to note that he is nothing in his pursuits without his wife Natalie and daughter Nessa, who constantly remind him why he is so inspired without saying a word. If you're looking to learn more about T&T or fly fishing in general within the Seattle, WA area feel free to stop in at Emerald Water Anglers and speak with Dave himself about all things tail and T&T.
