Who is Get a Drift Outdoors?
Get a Drift Outdoors is a couple of anglers dedicated to keeping your line wet and on the water. Our product Pro Bands is a true breakthrough for keeping your tippet organized, untangled, and shielded from the elements. Its conception was to simply solve issues we were having on the water with our tippet. After years of fishing, guiding, and floating, it was time to address the issues. Through dedication, hard work, and belief, we are able to deliver to the rest of the angling world a relief from the tangles and annoyances, keeping your line on the water longer.
Thanks for the support out there!

(Owner & Partner)
Tim is from Longmont, Colorado and grew up on the Front Range with fishing in his blood. His Dad, a bamboo rod builder raised Tim on the area lakes and streams. One of his fondest memories growing up was to sit and watch his Dad at the vise, meticulously spinning works of art, it was so peaceful. Tim knew fishing was something different for him at a young age, an escape to solitude, and often found himself breaking away from normal life just to be on the water. Tim made his way to the mountains in 2005 for good and settled on the banks of the Eagle River where everything fly fishing was magnified. The river was his classroom and Tim took every opportunity to harvest knowledge nature delivers. Often bringing home jars of bugs collected from the stream bed Tim honed in on his fly tying skills and thought there was nothing cooler than catching a fish on a fly he tied himself. Over the years Tim has developed deep relationships with people, teaching and passing knowledge, and Tim likes to say he fishes with friends, not clients. Along with his passion for teaching, Tim wants to give people the tools for success and has been an Umpqua Signature Fly designer for the past 5 years. His patterns are a direct reflection of his desire to be a professional in the industry, and nothing but quality service and education for his friends is what satisfies him most. Tim recently formed Get a Drift Outdoors to continue to give anglers an edge on the water. His innovation to make something better and us better as anglers are what keeps Tim motivated and the gears turning!

Zak has been in Colorado chasing fish for over 30 years. He went to High School in Estes Park, where he fell in love with Fly Fishing and Tying Flies. College was started in Steamboat Springs, catching Pike in the Yampa, and ended in Denver, catching Pike in the R.M.A.
Zak has logged hundreds of trips and 1000’s of hours exploring all of the great water in Colorado looking for trout, bass, pike, panfish, and a newer favorite – Carp. With a professional career in Art, Media & Product Development and a genuine passion for fishing it was destined that the two worlds would collide. Zak’s history of taking concepts and turning them into finished products was challenged by a good college friend on a fishing trip in the High Rockies and now the world has Pro Bands and Get a Drift Outdoors!
