Ethan Sparks


Ethan grew up fishing in central Texas and fell in love with it from a very early age, as some of his earliest memories are of fishing. This passion has led him to target almost all species found in the state, including inshore saltwater. He has also chased trout all over the western United States. While he’s not fishing, Ethan also enjoys spending time in the marshes duck hunting.


Some of his favorite aspects of guiding include taking beginners out and teaching them how to cast and some of the basic ins and outs of fishing, getting them to land their first fish, and watching their excitement and progress throughout the whole process. He also thoroughly enjoys taking experienced fly fishermen and helping them learn the tricks of the local waters, all while helping with any information they might want to know about the area and how it fishes.


During the summer, Ethan goes up to Colorado and guides trout fishing trips for The Sportsman Outdoors & Fly Shop in Lake City.
