I’m fishing for trout in a skiff on the Snake River in Jackson, Wyoming near Yellowstone National Park. I’m very lucky to live so close to this river!

Carter’s Thoughts on Living in Wyoming

I’m very fortunate to have the life I have. I’ve worked hard to make the fishing industry my home. Whether I am fishing with clients in Panama or traveling to some really cool destinations around the world to fish and film, I will always come home to Wyoming.

In the summer and fall I get to spend with my family—my wonderful wife and two precious little girls. This is when I get my trout fishing fix. As a family our favorite thing to do is get in the boat and go camping. A family that fishes together stays together!
