Kiefer fell in love with fly fishing back in college to clear his head and get into nature. The continuing challenges and lessons learned through the sport have kept him hooked! He began fly fishing in Washington State chasing trout, steelhead, and smallmouth any chance he got. He graduated from Walla Walla University with a BBA in finance. After college, Kiefer found himself back home in Chico, CA where he explored and fished the Sierra Nevada's. Since working for the Blue Quill Angler, he has enjoyed exploring the technical tailwaters Colorado has to offer. Kiefer's outgoing personality & his fishing and professional experience make him a great guide & teacher for anglers of all levels.
