Brad Hartley was born and raised in the Rocky Mountain West, fishing most of it from Canada to Mexico. After moving to the Jackson Hole, Wyoming area in the late 1980’s, he bought an old drift boat and began his lifelong dream of becoming a professional fishing guide on the Snake and South Fork rivers of Wyoming and Idaho. Three boats and many years later, he is still at it. Feeling the need for more space and bigger fish, Brad moved to Pinedale in 2001 and has dedicated thousands of hours to learning the nature of the Green and New Fork river systems.
