Boots Allen is a 3rd generation Wyoming fishing guide, writer, fly creator and was born and raised right here in Jackson Hole.
In this episode, Boots shares what drew his grandfather and mother out to Jackson. He talks about what it was like growing up in the Valley and carrying on his family’s legacy of fly fish guiding. Stephan and Boots also discuss the proper handling of fish, fishing in different parts of the world, creating flies, climate change, and the comical story of how his grandfather received the original name of Boots.
