Dylan Tomine is a Patagonia fly fishing ambassador, writer, conservation advocate, fatherdyl and author of Closer to the Ground: An Outdoor Family’s Year on the Water, in the Woods and at the Table. After five summers of guiding in Bristol Bay, Dylan returned home to the Pacific Northwest and a year-round pursuit of steelhead, which has taken him from Argentina to southeast Alaska. But after watching wild steelhead decline throughout their range and with two small children to consider, he’s currently working to direct more of his obsession toward writing and speaking about fish conservation.
