Rob grew up fishing in England targeting a variety of species, though trout were always his first choice. In 2009 Rob moved to North Carolina to study Ecology at UNC Greensboro, where he met his future wife, a WNC native. Rob quickly fell deeply in love with the lush mountains of Western North Carolina. Rob & Kendra put an astonishing number of miles on their vehicles driving back and forth between WNC and Greensboro, heading straight to the mountains whenever they had a spare day (or half a day!) to explore and play in the mountains. After graduation it was a no brainer to make the move permanent.
Rob prides himself on his encyclopedic knowledge of the creeks and trails in the area, his first love is getting into the backcountry to explore lesser visited parts of the forest in search of wild trout and he’s found a few hidden gems along the way. Rob delights in sharing his discoveries with his clients as well as teaching and discussing the unique ecology of these mountains.
