David Kalinowski - Destination Manager - Alaska, Kamchatka

David grew up fly fishing in New England chasing Brook trout, landlocked Salmon and whatever else swam in the waters he visited. After graduating from the University of Connecticut with a degree in natural resources he spent three years working for the state’s fisheries division and then decided to expand his horizons and head West. He landed in Bend, Oregon and spent 12 years there managing fly shops, selling guided trips, guiding anglers, and teaching others about the sport he loved. David is a highly skilled angler, tier, and caster and fits in perfectly with Fly Water’s philosophy of customer service. When not out chasing steelhead or king salmon you might find him swinging a golf club or snowboarding. At fly water David will be assisting anglers with their travel plans to Alaska and the Pacific Northwest and we are proud to have him on our team.
