Meet the Founder
Collin began fishing when he was 3-years old. He was raised in Grand Lake, Colorado. His free times was spent fishing on lakes, streams and rivers. His passion lies in fishing for all types of fish. He's been fortunate enough to fish for trout on Gray's Reef in Wyoming, for tuna and dolphin in Maui, for trout all over Colorado, bone fish in the Florida Keys, red fish and speckled trout in the Bayou's in Louisiana, for amberjack, cobia and red snapper in Gulf Shores, Alabama and he's living my dream fly fishing and deep sea fishing in Alaska.
His Dad brought him to Alaska when he was 11 years old to go fishing. He returned every summer thereafter and moved to the Last Frontier when he was 18 years old.
While working on a sports fishing boat in Seward, Alaska he's done over 155 trips. He founded Tightlines Alaska in 2014 and has done over 600 float trips since. During his free time he floats and fishes the Kenai River, learns and reads the waters on the Kenai, learned the habitat on the Kenai and continues his love for maintaining a healthy environment for fisheries and water conservation.
