22 Jul SWE Staff Profile – Captain Ryan Gluek
Capt. Ryan Gluek joined the Saltwater Edge Team during the middle of the 2013 season. He brings an array of talent and knowledge gained as a result of his time spent on local waters while growing up in Barrington, RI. His pursuits took him to the Sweetwater Guide program in Montana where he was schooled as a professional guide at the age of 18. Ryan worked in Alaska at Valhalla Lodge fishing the remote western Alaska streams and then managed a fly fishing shop in Boulder, Colorado while working with Black Canyon Anglers for 6 years. He guided 3-day wilderness float trips for fly fishing through the famed Black Canyon of the Gunnison River. He also spent winters in Patagonia, Chile guiding trips for trophy trout.
He currently owns and operates Double Haul Anglers chasing everything from stripers to tuna on light tackle and fly rods from a beautiful 2007 23 ft. Contender Open (one of the best boats on the market for this style of fishing).
He also keeps New England anglers current on the area fishing forecast as a monthly columnist to On The Water magazine.
