Derek Young

Derek Young

Derek Young is the owner of Emerging Rivers Guide Services and is an Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Guide based in Snoqualmie, WA. Derek has been fly fishing for the last 16 years, learning on the Blue River in Colorado from a local guide, and teaching others to fly fish for the last 10 years.

Derek has been tying in earnest for the last two years, under the tutelage of Dave Carpenter. Experimenting with every-day and traditional materials, Derek reflects upon tried and true patterns but with an open eye and mind to create variations that catch the eye of the most suspicious trout. Derek and Dave share the creation of a pattern featured by Orvis, named the "YakCaddis." This fly was designed and tested both on-water and through the mail and phone calls, with each providing test results to arrive at the final tie.

Derek guides year-round on the Yakima River and the Forks of the Snoqualmie River near his home. He is also the instructor for the Orvis Bellevue Fly Fishing 101 course. Be sure to check out Derek's Emerging Rivers Guide Services Facebook page as well as his blog
