Cody has over 20 years of fly fishing experience. His love of fly fishing started at a young age and progressed into the passion he has today. Born and bred in Ohio, Cody learned to fly fish on the rivers and lakes of the midwest. He then moved to Utah to pursue both his career in aerial skiing and degree at University of Utah. During his ten years spent in Park City, Cody had pursued and studied every stretch of water he could get close to.
Soon after graduating from the "U", Cody became the director of the Squaw Valley Freestyle Team in Lake Tahoe California. In his 8 year run as director Cody coached all skill levels from first timers to US Ski Team athletes. He also kept his fly fishing skills sharp in the summer while running his own guide service on the Truckee river. He now teaches a fly fishing course at the University of Utah.
Looking for that easy honey hole or wanting to take the road less traveled? Cody will get you there.

Avi cofounded a recycling company in Philadelphia, PA and grew the business for 15 years until the draw of life in the mountains and rivers became too much to ignore.
Avi hired Mayfly Guides shortly after moving to Park City, met Cody, and for the next couple of years spent most of his days (and some nights) chasing Cody around the rivers and streams of Utah and Wyoming.
His passion for fishing and appreciation for time spent on a river is contagious and his “stoke” passes through to whoever he sharing the day with.
When winter rolls around, Avi spends almost every day on his snowboard or split board exploring mountains.
