Andy Archer - Destination Manager - Pacific Northwest, Saltwater

Andy specializes in Fly Water Travel's operations in the Pacific Northwest, Christmas Island and Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. Growing up in Central Oregon, Andy began working at his local fly shop at the age of 15 and has continued to work in various facets of the fly fishing industry ever since. Andy has guided throughout Central Oregon and had the rare good fortune to guide the fabled waters of New Zealand's South Island. He has also managed online fly fishing shops and blogs and loves engaging with the greater fly fishing community. After completing his Bachelor's Degree in Environmental Science from the University of Oregon, Andy spent the following years traveling and fishing as much as possible. This opened his eyes to the endless world of fly fishing travel including the saltwater fisheries of the world. When not on the river or in an airport terminal, you can find Andy on the soccer field, running or hiking the trails of Oregon, or swinging in his hammock with a good book or Bluetooth speaker.
