Kevin Brandtonies was born in Chicago IL in 1968; He has been fishing since he was 5 years old.
His first trip to this area was in 1974, where his father Larry Brandtonies fell in love with the White River and brought his family here every year.
Kevin worked as a first mate on charter boats out of Chicago on Lake Michigan, for six years he trolled for Salmon and Trout. He eventually went into the securities business and still vacationed here every year. Dreaming of the day he could come here and stay for good.
Kevin moved to New York and worked on the American Stock Exchange until one day his emotions got the better of him in May of 2000. He left the “Big Apple” and moved here to chase his dream of being a professional guide. Since that time he’s never looked back. “Fishing” especially Fly Fishing has been his passion.
Kevin enjoys teaching children and “first timers” So no matter if you are a seasoned veteran or a first timer you will enjoy fishing with him. Tangles, lost flies, missed fish don’t bother him. As he puts it, “don’t worry about it, that’s what I’m here for”. If you’re ready to have a stress free fun day, call and book a trip with Kevin.
