DAYLE MAZZARELLA was born in Riverton Wyoming and, for the past 40 years has spent much of his summers living and fishing Wyoming streams and rivers. Dayle begin guiding in western Wyoming in 1987. He begin concentrating on the Hams Fork and the Smiths Fork in 2008 and is now working these rivers considerably more than any other guide, putting in over 60 days a year learning the secrets of both rivers! Dayle retired from full time teaching and coaching in 2005 and is now devoting most of his time to flyfishing and things related to flyfishing. As an award winning teacher and coach he loves using his diverse teaching experiences as a way to share with others his knowledge and passion of fly fishing
BARBARA MAZZARELLA is the glue that holds the entire operation together. Barbara spent her career as a school psychologist and uses those skills to keep the boys in line! She also arranges reservations and itineraries, handles correspondence, prepares the meals, runs the shuttles, and performs numerous other important functions.
DYLAN MAZZARELLA is Dayle’s nephew and an enthusiastic addition to our team! Dylan sets up the lunches, and helps out in a hundred little ways. He is a super caster and angler and is often out on the river helping net fish, change flies, take photos and videos, or spot fish. Dylan is there to help in any way he can and people love his great attitude and infectious smile. Dylan began his guiding apprentice program during the summer of 2015. By all accounts clients were very pleased with Dyaln’s “people skills” and Fly Fishing knowledge. The most common phrase used to describe Dylan was “he’s a natural guide.” You’ll enjoy working with Dylan – he has a nose for finding fish!
Though it’s unlikely that you will meet her, our niece, Rachel Martinez, is an integralpart of our team. Rachel loves the out-of-doors and will be participating as an intern in a national forest this summer! In addition, she is our website guru! She keeps the website updated, adds and/or deletes and changes fishing reports, videos, guiding information, and everything else we need. Rachel is our go-to Techie and we greatly appreciate her expertise!
