Josh grew up in the mountains of Colorado and watched a world class resort grow from the ground up. His passion for fishing got started at a young age when his father would take him camping in the flat top wilderness. When he was about 10 he found an old spin/flyfish combo rod and headed to the river. He has been completely consumed with the sport ever since. Upon graduating High School he headed north to the great state of Montana. He attended college between his days on the Madison, Yellowstone and Gallatin Rivers.

The Weekly Fly

According to his mother, Dave began fishing with an actual fly while backpacking in Idaho's Sawtooth Mountains. Such trips were an inspiration for Dave. Returning home, he would scrounge materials and begin tying. This teenage hobby continued after high school as Dave perfected his famous patterns. Teaming with Ken McGee and others, Dave began commercial fly tying in 1977. In addition to owning a Boise fly shop for seventeen years, his efforts and skill earned international awards for his exceptional flies. The accolades continued in another facet of Dave's involvement with fishing, as he has guided senators, ambassadors, media personnel, entertainers and hundreds of "everyday anglers." In yet another direction, Dave attended Mel Kreiger's famous casting school and was certified Fly Fishing Federation Flycasting Instructor. The list goes on: Dave has studied fly casting under Joan Wulff, worked with school districts to develop fishing programs, and mastered single-handed and spey casting. If it involves flies and fish, Dave has done it.

After departing from the retail venue of fly fishing, Dave met and married fellow fly fisherwoman, Rhonda Price, due to popular demand they began their guiding operation, "Dreams on the Fly". Combining their love of the sport, as well as the passion for sharing the sport with others, they guide people from all over the world on the Grande Ronde, Owyhee and numerous other rivers considered Blue Ribbon waters of the west. Featured in Forbes magazine as one the the premier guides in the Northwest(See Article Here), they primarily guide for steelhead, brown and rainbow trout, and small mouth bass. Dreams on the Fly specializes in daily, 3 and 5 day float trips with an emphasis on offering the customer an experience of a lifetime. "You just need to have your waders and boots and we'll take care of the rest".

Al Ritt: Ritt's Fighting Crayfish

Al Ritt has tied several patterns in our fly tying videos. See them here.
From Al:

I grew up in Michigan and have been fly fishing as long as I can remember. After graduating college, I moved to California and gravitated toward fly fishing almost exclusively. I have been tying flies “seriously” since 1983 and have been a tying instructor both independently and for several Colorado fly shops since 2000. In 2005 I also began guiding along Colorado’s front range. Currently I am a member of Whiting Farms Pro Staff and am employed by PEAK Fishing and I have several fly tying patterns commercially available. In addition to guiding, fly tying instruction and demos, my wife Diana and I own and operate our own company geared primarily toward flyfishing education services. More detailed information is available at www.alrittflies.com.
