Justin has been fishing since he was old enough to hold a fishing pole. When he was young his father brought him on trips to Alaska, where his fascination of fishing was sparked.
Justin grew up in Keizer, Oregon. As a teenager he would spend his lunch money on tackle and bait assuming he would rather catch his lunch. He would sneak over to the coast as often as he could to fish and breathe the coastal air.
Justin began his guiding career in 2009 and has enjoyed every minute of it since.
