Thad Ferrell


Thad Ferrell was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee. He spent his childhood traveling out West to fish with his parents. They planted a seed, and whether the branches lead to climbing, biking, hiking, fly fishing, or floating the rivers of the West that he was introduced to as a boy, he knew this was where he wanted to put down roots.

Always thinking about fly fishing, and after a very narrow brush with death in 2017, Thad decided to move forward with his dream of starting a guide service. Now a father himself, Thad shares his passions with his own children and wife, in addition to those he guides down the river. Thad will be leading all fly fishing trips and co-leading all birding trips in the Four Corners and Western Slope regions where Four Corners Guides operates, along with helping out with multi-sport adventure tours. Check out his guide service, King Fisher Fly Guides, and follow him on Instagram.
