About the Capitan
Founder and Head Guide of Virginia-based Middle River Outfitters, Justin was introduced to the sport of fly fishing industry at the age of 12 through a non-profit organization that focuses on teaching youth and conservation projects. Over the past 20 years, he has worked as a guide, sales rep, instructor, clinician, and currently dedicates his time as president of the Virginia chapter of the aforementioned nonprofit.
Originally hailing from Shepherdstown, West Virginia, Justin has fished extensively throughout the Potomac, Shenandoah, and Savage River. Justin is a graduate of the Sweetwater Travel Company Guide School, an Orvis-endorsed guide, and an instructor for the master’s class of BOJC in Maryland.
As a guide, Justin is kind, patient, and jovial. In his own words, “I have never lost the appreciation for the simplicity of learning a new thing, trying to see the world through a fish’s eyes, or just how the serenity of a forest by the water’s edge can make a lot melt away. I love to take people fishing and teach them something new or different, but I also appreciate sharing in a learning experience.” Join Justin for your next fishing adventure.
