“In 2014, Aron became one of the newest member of the Worley Bugger Fly Co guide team. Aron is a local boy who grew up trotting around the banks of the Yakima.  The Upper River is definitely his forte and I have yet to find anyone who knows that portion of the river inside and out like he does.  Aron is a fine teacher of the art of casting and catching and a true pleasure to spend a day on the water with. We are glad to have him on the team and I am in no doubt you will enjoy a day of fly fishing with him, wherever that may be. Steve Worley

Aron was born Kittitas County and grew up in Roslyn, Washington in an outdoor family lifestyle fishing and hunting.  Roslyn, a small 1800’s mining town located northwest of Cle Elum, where hardened miners staked there claims in gold, silver and coal was made infamous from the 1990’s television show “Northern Exposure”. 

Most people living in and around the Pacific Northwest are most familiar with the Brick Tavern located on the corner of the main street in Roslyn, where locals like to congregate to cool off in the summer and warm up with a good drink in the winter months.    

Aron avidly pursued fly fishing from a very young age and honed his fly fishing skills on the Yakima River as well as many of the smaller tributaries that feed the blue ribbon stream.  Like most of us, Aron was mentored in his fishing and took to it very naturally as a young man.

In the early stages of his adult life, Aron headed to the North Country of Alaska to guide fishermen from all over the globe for a variety of fish like Arctic Char, Sockeye Salmon and large Rainbow Trout as well as Grayling and Northern Pike. 

Here, he honed his river skills with flies as well as the challenges of oaring and safely maneuvering a boat through the untamed wilderness areas. Aron spent many seasons on the rivers of the north, guiding people through the Fishing Bear Lodge in Tikchik River Region of Alaska.

Aron is a family man and has been married for over ten years to his wife Cheryl. They have two children and one grandchild.



I am confident in saying you will find fishing with Aron a rewarding, fun and worthwhile experience and most likely become a welcome site in his boat on a yearly basis no matter where our fishing takes you. If you would like to fish with Aron for the day, please make that request when booking your guided trip with us. The majority of our guiding business is from repeat customers that return to fish with us every year. Thank you for your business.  Steve Worley-Owner-WBFC
