2014 marked the 29th year in which Mark has guided sportsmen from around the world on Alaska’s Kenai River.
In 1996 Mark had the honor of being awarded by the State of Alaska, “The Professional Sportsman of the Year” award. Mark was the first recipient of this award. This was presented to him by Alaska’s Governor Tony Knowles and United States Senator Ted Stevens.
Of the thousands of fishermen from around the world who have spent time with Mark on the Kenai River and the hunting adventures that have taken Mark from the wilds of Alaska to the roof of the world chasing his dreams, fishing with his grandchildren, Talon and Tenley are the highlights of his outdoor life.
