Born and raised in Mountain Home, Arkansas, Adrian is by definition a "true local". He spent most of his childhood catching sculpins and crawdads while camping out on the Buffalo River. His father, an avid outdoorsman and even a local river guide for a short time, helped him develop a unique outlook on the water system he calls home. Having had a Jon boat since the age of sixteen, Adrian is intimately familiar with the White and Buffalo rivers and loves helping people create their own unique experiences.
Spending time on the water has always been a passion, but only recently became a career. Directly out of high school, Adrian went to work as a mechanic and has done everything from managing a small automotive shop to running a service truck for heavy equipment. He jokingly claims to be retired now and the only time you will catch him holding a tool is when assembling his daughter’s toys or completing his wife’s to-do lists. Adrian is a proud family man dedicated to sharing the joy of the Ozarks with all ages. Whether you are looking to introduce your family to fly fishing for the first time or a seasoned angler looking to target brown trout, you can rest assured that you will be met with a smile and old-school southern hospitality.
