He owns the Platte River Fly Shop and has appeared on many outdoor programs like ESPN, PBS and Columbia Country. He has hosted many saltwater trips to destinations like Canada, Belize, Baja and Costa Rica. Mark is an innovative fly tyer and many of his patterns are produced and distributed by Stone Creek Ltd. throughout the United States. His flies have appeared in both books and articles and are well known throughout the Rocky Mountains for both trout and carp.
Mark grew up mainly on the east coast both in the New England area and east coast of Florida fishing for stripers, blues, sea trout, redfish, snook, tarpon and large mouth bass. His passion of fishing as young boy influenced his decision to obtain a B.S. degree in fisheries biology which he completed at the University Of Wyoming in 1981. After graduating, he worked in the range department for the U.S. Forest Service for seven years until 1988. He eventually migrated to Casper, Wyoming and started guiding on the North Platte River in his spare time. In 1994, Mark re-opened the Platte River Fly Shop. He guided for almost 20 years on the Gray Reef section of the North Platte River and is one of the most knowledgeable authorities on that tail water.
