Dave Hise

Dave Hise

I grew up in Los Angeles and my fly fishing/tying addiction began at the age of 14. Growing up, I fly fished places like Piru Creek, San Gabriel River, and the LA River but also made frequent jaunts to the Sierras and Northern California.

I went away to college in 1985 and completed my undergraduate studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara in 1989 with a degree in Physical Anthropology. It was at that point, that I strived to become a Forensic Osteologist. I moved to Michigan to attend graduate school at Michigan State University, where I was in the PhD program in Forensic Osteology. Following roughly 3 years of field work, which included many hours in the morgue, I began to wonder if I was really cut out for that line of work. I understood that fly fishing was my real passion but often wondered how I could make a career out of my hobby. My primary line of work throughout school was guiding and working in fly shops so I felt that I knew fly fishing and how the industry worked. With this in mind, I decided to quit graduate school and move to Montana. The rest is history....

Claims to fame: I was honored with the Orvis Fly Tyer of the Year in 2005 and was 1 of 4 runner-ups for the Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Guide of the Year in 2011.
