Born and raised in Colorado, Peter Jaacks started casting a fly rod as a teenager on the mountain streams and lakes of the Rocky Mountains. While attending Colorado State University, Peter’s backyard expanded to the Western US, spending free time from school chasing secret skiing glades and remote trout streams. Upon graduating from CSU, Peter drove from Colorado to Alaska and spent the summer backpacking, fishing, and rafting around south-central Alaska. Upon returning to the lower 48, Peter co-lead a National Geographic funded expedition floating the entire length of the Elwha River on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington to document the dam removal project and returning fishery there. In 2014, Peter started working for Alaska’s Wild River Guides, sharing adventures and fish stories with guests while moving across the awe-inspiring landscapes of southwest Alaska. When he is not fishing, Peter can be found at the end of a long skin-track, searching for powder in the Colorado backcountry.

Vinnie Pachelli is a member of WDTU and avid outdoorsman.
