Bob Triggs began his outdoors life on the small
ponds and streams of the sprawling Adirondack Mountain Wilderness
Park in upstate New York. He is a lifelong fisherman, boater and
outdoorsman with a broad range of wilderness experience and skills.
He studied literature and biology at Rutgers University and at
Purchase College, and worked for many years in the restoration
and conservation of antiquities, and as a writer. In 1980 he took
up the grand obsession of fly fishing on the storied waters of
the Catskill Mountains of New York; birthplace of American fly
fishing. He has fished extensively throughout the Atlantic states
for numerous species in both fresh and salt waters. Bob began
his guiding career in 1994 and since then has guided in New England,
New York, Alaska, Kamchatka-Russia and Washington's Olympic Peninsula.
His articles and essays on the fishing life have appeared in Fly
Fisherman Magazine, Fly Fishing in Salt Waters, Heading Out, The
Yale Angler's Journal, Land Rover Journal and numerous regional
outdoors publications and newspapers. He writes and fishes on
Washington's Olympic Peninsula.
