A happy fisherman with a nice lake trout!
This early immersion into the outdoors led Steve to an
interesting path in life filled with many rich experiences
helping others be successful outdoorspeople.  These
experiences fuel Steve’s passion for guiding. Just ask
him:  “Seeing the joy and sense of accomplishment that
the wilderness can bring to peoples' faces, and being a
part of that is like…… WOW!  There have been many,
many, times when I know I have the best job in the
world!”
Fly fishing for smallies!
Steve is an accomplished fly fisherman and fly tier.
This pursuit lead him even further north than Ely,
Minnesota.  He worked as a fly fishing guide in
Alaska for several years. However, he missed the
Boundary Waters and now splits his time between
these two wonderful destinations.  “The fishing in
Alaska is awesome, but the allure of a canoe, a
flyrod, and a smallmouth bass makes the BWCA a
world class fishing destination in its own right.”

Wilderness Fishing Guide
During the winter months Steve spends his time as a
dogsledding guide at
Wintergreen Dogsled Lodge.
Come springtime he can usually be found along some
trout stream fly fishing with his dog, Brook. In the
fall, odds are pretty good you will find him chasin’
Brook around the north woods in pursuit of grouse
and woodcock.

Steve grew up in the bluff country of southeastern
Minnesota, a stone's throw from the Mississippi River. He
credits his parents for "wettin' his appetite" for the outdoors
early in life. Camping and fishing trips to the north woods of
Minnesota and Canada, and summer vacations to
destinations such as Yellowstone and Yosemite National
Parks developed his appreciation for the great outdoors. At
age 13, for his confirmation present, he got a bluetick
coonhound pup.

There is magic in the feel of a paddle and the movement of a canoe, a magic compounded of distance,
adventure, solitude and peace. The way of a canoe is the way of the wilderness and of a freedom almost
forgotten, the open door to waterways of ages past and a way of life with profound and abiding satisfaction.
