A native of Connecticut, Rob used all his free time exploring the public lands and waters of New England with fishing rod, shotgun or bow in hand. After a short career in the printing industry, in 1997 he decided to make a living sharing his outdoor passion with others, becoming a fishing guide.After several years of guiding in the East, and wanting to further his career in the outdoor business, he moved west to the Tetons to manage a fly fishing outfitter and eventually be the hard goods buyer for a large outdoor shop in Jackson, Wyoming. In these roles, Rob created valuable relationships in the outdoor community which made him recognize the value of public lands – for people to recreate on as well as economically. With 20 years of sharing the outdoors with others through guiding and outfitting, Rob is now excited to take the next step with Backcountry Hunters & Anglers to ensure that we will always have access to our public lands and waters.Living in Victor, Idaho, Rob, along with his wife and Labrador, get outside as much as possible while foraging, fishing and hunting.
