Scott grew up in Pittsburgh, Pa. fly fishing the trout streams of western Pa. and the fabled spring creeks of central Pa. He first picked up a fly rod at 12 years old and has fished ever since. He moved to Breckenridge in 1991 and his 22 years in the county has led to an extensive knowledge of the areas creeks, rivers and high mountain lakes. He has fished all over the west and New Zealand as well as flats fishing in Mexico. Not afraid to get off the beaten path, Scott’s always looking for someplace to find a little solitude. ” It is better to have fished and failed, then failed to fish ” sums up Scott’s commitment to the overall experience, where catching trout is simply a bonus to the incredible scenery.
