Growing up on the trout and steelhead waters of Oregon, many of Reid’s earliest memories revolve around fly fishing trips with his father. He is a graduate of the University of Colorado, where he was president of the University of Colorado Fly-Fishing Club and earned a degree in English and Creative Writing. It was during his college career that his love for teaching, fly-fishing, nature and writing came together and he decided to dedicate his life to sharing these collective passions. Since becoming a professional guide, he has come to understand how much he truly lives to watch his infectious excitement for the sport rub off on others.
Reid is an Owner and Guide Manager for Freestone Outfitters. He is an avid writer and his work has been featured in The Flyfish Journal. When not guiding, he travels the world, fly rod in hand, constantly amazed by the remarkable people and places fishing has shown him.
