Damian Wells

Damian grew up in Denver and learned to fly fish on the South Platte. After Moving to Steamboat to try to make the US Freestyle ski team, he discovered the incredible fishing in the Yampa Valley. After years of skiing and guiding fly fishing in the valley, he moved to the mountains near Asheville, North Carolina to teach elementary school, where he enjoys fishing for native brookies, small mouth bass, and trips to the coast to pursue Redfish. Damian enjoys sight fishing with dry flies, fishing with his son, and teaching people so they can enjoy fly fishing on their own. He Returns each summer to Steamboat to guide and fish, he loves to share the yampa valley fishing experience with all ages and abilities.
