Fly Fishing Expert Josh H.
  • Josh H.

    Fishing for over thirty years and being in the Military for twenty, has taught me to remember that any wade and wet fly is better than not being there at all. I would rather spend a day on the river, and a night under the stars than anywhere else.

    I have had the privilege of living in the most beautiful parts of the country in my two decades of service. It has brought me to some absolutely majestic places, and allowed me to experience everything the outdoors and the chase of the elusive has to offer. Chances are if there was water where I've been, I have wet my line in it. I never pass up the opportunity to listen, laugh, and throw flies, and the adventures have provided me the opportunity to meet some wonderful people along the way.

    Whether it be a rod/reel suggestion to get you started in the sport, gear to set you up for success in new water, a trip you've never been on and the gear needed, or the fly selection that is preferable in a particular ecosystem; let me guide you to the gear that will facilitate your next unforgettable experience. It would be my distinct pleasure to assist you in finding the right solution to your fly fishing needs.

    Josh was amazing
    Josh was great! He was very knowledgeable and took what I had to say into consideration. Josh provided me perfect options for what I was looking for and was friendly during the entire process. I would recommend him to anyone. I couldn't have asked for a better guide in pur having a new fly rod. Thanks Josh!

    As always, he went above and beyond
    Out of all the things that I have ordered through Josh this may have been the most challenging. With virtually zero inventory and knowing once they were available they would be gone very very quickly. His diligence assured me that we would not miss the opportunity. With Josh this is the norm. He is the reason I keep coming back

    This Dude is the Real Deal!
    I was lost…the blogs, vlogs, reviews, everyone pushing brands. I knew that most of it was compensated reviews but I wanted someone outside it all. My friend said he had used Curated. I decided to give it a try and I was connected with Josh. I will never buy recreational equipment anywhere else again. Josh laid out the differences in gear in language I understood, he was never in it to sell me on anything, just to get me set up correctly. His purpose - was my success. He went above and beyond and real time video’d with me so I could see and understand exactly what I was he was describing. I have never had customer service like this! If you want the right gear at the best price Josh is the guy to make it happen. I couldn’t be more pleased!

    Fly fishing genius!
    Josh was truly impressive! He exceeded my expectations and bent over backwards to assist me in finding the Sage Trout Reel 4/5/6! I am stoked about trying out the Douglas Sky G 9 ft 5 wt rigged with Scientific Anglers Amplitude Trout. It is clearly an exceptional rod based on its performance in the Yellowstone Angler’s 5 wt Shoot Out! Without Josh’s fly fishing expertise I would be undoubtedly be set up with less than the best! Go see Josh! You won’t regret it!

    Got name brand gear discounted
    Josh was always ready to answer my questions, and there were many. He got me the best price he could and most importantly gave me his personal reviews of the 2 good products I bought. I feel I’m getting good stuff, even the best for my pack.

    Great Shopping Experience. Wasn’t really sure what to expect with Curated but turns out getting my equipment selection dialed correctly is a big plus, but it once buy it right.
    Taking a little time to help the Curated expert understand your needs pays off in getting the right stuff at the best value.

    You’re missing out if you don’t shop with Josh!
    Josh exceeded my expectations! I needed some upgraded gear for my upcoming fishing trip to CO. He provided me with options I didn’t even know existed; options of high quality and known for exemplary performance. I am not only stoked to get my gear, but also to show it off to fishing friends! Being able to tell them what I learned from Josh will wow them! He was a wealth of new knowledge which was just as amazing! Overall excellent experience! I will definitely be back to for future fishing and outdoor gear needs!
