About Zeke Hersh

Growing up in Washington state, Zeke fell in love with fishing at an early age.  Fly fishing engaged him after watching a Steelhead angler fly cast on early morning bike rides to school. For a summer, he was a daily visitor at the local fly shop, quickly absorbing as much information as he could. Greatly influenced by the book “The Art and Science of Fly Fishing” by Lennox Dick, Zeke loves to break down the technical aspects of fly fishing and fish tendencies to find the best and most effective methods for success. An ever-patient instructor, lover of the outdoors, and teacher of the art, science, and wonder of fly fishing is what motivates Zeke to continue to further educate himself and others about the sport he loves.

“Being outside and on the water is only a small part of what I love about being a fly fishing guide. I love being part of the action, I love being a teacher, I love creating experiences and making memories. Probably my favorite part of being a guide is when I create a passion for fly fishing that wasn’t there before we started our day.”
