Speaker: Dave McCoy – Owner Emerald Water Anglers
At a young age, Dave’s father introduced him to fishing and sparked a lifelong passion to experience and enjoy life in the great outdoors. Growing up in Eugene, Oregon, his stomping grounds were and remain legendary namesakes such as Crane Prairie and Hosmer Lakes as well as the Deschutes, McKenzie and Umpqua Rivers to name a few. While Dave quickly discovered the thrill of having a fish on, it was the awe of his surroundings that instilled his deep passion for fishing and conservation. Dave has dedicated his professional life to the fly fishing industry and has spent the last twenty-plus years relentlessly trying to surpass expectations as a guide, outfitter, conservationist, writer, photographer, store owner, and fly fishing ambassador.
Dave is quick to note that he is nothing in his pursuits without his wife Natalie and daughter Nessa, who constantly reminds him why he is so inspired without saying a word. In addition to owning and operating Emerald Water Anglers, Dave is proud to represent these companies in the following capacities:
Brand Ambassador: Patagonia, Costa, Thomas & Thomas
Nautilus Reel Ambassador
Keep Fish Wet Ambassador
Echo/Airflo pro staff member
FFI Certified Casting Instructor
Snoqualmie River Steward for Native Fish Society
American Museum of Fly Fishing Ambassador
