Attending Texas Tech University studying Natural Resources Management, Max is often torn between the trout of New Mexico and Colorado, and Texas bass. With either choice he is always conscious of conservation, and recognizes the importance of our environment. Sharing adventures, tips, and opinions through writing and photography is a hobby turned obsession for Max.

Being raised in San Antonio, Texas, he grew up outdoors whether it was on the coast, in the mesquite brush of South Texas, or in the blue lines of the Texas Hill Country. His sights are now set mostly on fly fishing, fly tying, and conservation of our truly unique earth that we are so lucky to enjoy through public lands. Max has previously worked at Duranglers Flies and Supplies where he got his introduction to the industry, and looks forward to what the future holds around the next bend in the river.
