Cutthroat Anglers

Adam Morgan


Mr. Morgan emerged from Kentucky, where he was raised as a whitewater enthusiast. His love for water served as a gateway into the world of fly fishing. At the age of 11, Adam picked up his first fly rod. The rest was history. Adam quickly developed an obsession with smallmouth bass on the fly, with tailwater trout fishing serving as a close second.

In 2007, Adam made the decision to turn his passion into a career by attending a fly fishing guide school in Montana. Adam landed a guide job with Cutthroat Anglers in the spring of 2009, and the move to Colorado was the catalyst of a serious problem- an addiction to fly fishing that had become exponentially worse as the allure of floating big rivers and catching wild trout took him by storm.

Lovingly known as "Captain Newjack," Adam is fueled by youthful enthusiasm and a genuine love for the sport of fly fishing. On his days off, he can be found floating the Colorado, Arkansas, or Roaring Fork Rivers. In the winter, he spends his time shredding on his snowboard or maybe tuning a pair of skis.
