Ryan came to Sitka in 2012 and started as a deckhand for Angling Unlimited, working his way up to getting his Captains License in 2015. He is a recent graduate of the University of Minnesota Duluth with a Bachelors Degree in Criminology. In the off-season, he invests the majority of his free time to two of his passions: hunting and fishing. He hunts for ducks in the fall, coyotes and fox om the winter, as well as fishes for Walleyes through the ice. Come Spring, the fly rod comes out for some trout just before heading back North to Sitka.
