STUART DOMINICK: Stuart Dominick is a selfless giver; as a ski patroller, outfitter and most importantly, a father. Stuart also gives back to the river. In his 17-year career, he’s donated countless full beers, rods, reels, cell phones, cameras, oars, anchors and even his original guide vehicle: His beloved Isuzu Trooper. Stu’s also a dreamer. He’d like nothing better than to host a Walleye Fishing TV Show, with a big mustache, funny glasses and a patch-ridden jumpsuit. There’s just one drawback: Stu’s a shitty walleye fisherman. In fact, it’s rumored Stu’s never even caught a walleye and he admits the only picture of him with a walleye was caught by another angler. Fortunately, he lacks a future as a walleye pro, which forces him to continue focus on trout fishing and fly tying. He is as talented and technical a fly tier as there is anywhere. Thanks for the sweet flies Stu.
