He fell in love with fly fishing in 1992 when he relocated to Colorado with his wife Ruth and their three sons, Jantsen, Cassidy and Carlan.  Despite running a successful contracting company for 20+ years while enjoying all the Rocky Mountains have to offer, Todd was never able to shake his boyhood dream of exploring the magic of wild Alaska.  He fulfilled those dreams in 2014 when he purchased Icy Bay Lodge, as beautiful and remote a lodge as he’d ever imagined.  Thrilled to be part of the magnificent outdoor playground of this wild frontier, Todd looks forward to introducing Icy Bay Lodge to fellow adventurers and explorers from around the globe.

Mike developed his love for the outdoors and fishing when he would return home in the Summers from traveling the globe in pursuit of adventure and split time between rural Illinois and the Texas coast. In the off-season he lives in Denver and fishes all over the Rockies and surrounding states. If there is water with fish, Mike will find it and fish it! His biggest thrill comes from watching new anglers find success on the water and experience their first Alaskan fish at Icy Bay Lodge.
