Craig Boulden was born and raised in the wilds of Wyoming. During his twenty-five years as a professional fishing and hunting guide, his angling adventures have taken him from the rugged mountains of western Wyoming, to the arid canyon lands of northern Arizona, and to the untamed watersheds of Alaska’s last frontier. As an out-camp guide for king fishing, he lived in the Alaskan bush for ten years with the bears and foxes, and averaged at least 500 kings in his boat each season.
Boulden’s wizardry with a rod and reel have been written up in Western Outdoors, Western Angler, Gray’s Sporting Journal, and The Arizona Republic, and he has been featured on the Outdoor Channel’s “Fly Fish Television Magazine” show. In 1998, he captured the “Best in the West” fly casting championship and, in 1991, the title of #2 Team of the Year on the Wyoming Walleye Circuit. In the last few years, Craig has extended his quest for angling adventure into blue water, becoming one of the elite group of fishermen to have landed bonefish, tarpon, dorado, barracuda, and sailfish on his own hand-tied flies.
