DFG Guide / Manager
Born and raised in Alaska, Alex spends the thawed months fishing all over the state. As a dedicated fly fisherman and fly-tier of over 10 years, fly-fishing has become his favorite method for chasing Alaska’s numerous game fish from the grayling near his winter home in Fairbanks to king salmon in his home waters of the Kenai Peninsula. After finishing a Photo Journalism degree Alex hopes to dedicate more time than ever to the sport and share it with his friends and clients.

Originally from Russellville, Arkansas, Terry has been spending his summers in Denali since 2003.

He is a self-taught, semi-pro nature photographer of 11 years and has dedicated his life to spending the majority of his time on mountain streams pursuing his fishing and photography.
