Tom Kollodge


I’m Tom Kollodge from Rochester, Minnesota. I cut my teeth on the small, technical trout streams of the driftless region of SE Minnesota and Western Wisconsin. When I’m not targeting trout, I like chasing smallmouth bass and great lakes steelhead. I also enjoy horseback riding, camping, and hunting. I am a board member of my local Trout Unlimited chapter, and enjoy making a positive impact on my local fishery. Fly fishing has brought me to many incredible places, including the Henry’s Fork of the Snake River, 11-mile Canyon of the South Platte, the Madison River, and the Gulf Coast of Louisiana.
