Why A Guide?

After spending countless hours of researching “your trip”, you’ve spent the money on lodging, getting there, and on flies the local fly shop said were hot (or what they had the most of), it’s time to hit the stream.  At the end of two or three days, you head home frustrated.... And the fly shop says the guides are doing well.

Countless times I have rerigged anglers rods when it's time to start casting, as they were rigged improperly.

By hiring a reputable guide, you start off on the right foot, before the first cast is made.  By hiring a guide, you turn what could have been a discouraging day into a  successful day or turn a good day into a grand day.  By being on the water daily, as well as my other 8 guides, we share daily information on what’s Hot Hot Hot, and what’s not.  We have first hand, “daily” knowledge of where to go, and where the fish are, as there are times we have the whole river system covered.

With local and fresh knowledge, you are fishing clean, productive water, with expert techniques given that situation.  Once the fish is on,  the guide will do anything in his power to get it to the net and on your camera.  With a guide you have the mobility of a boat to cover some mileage during the day, to keep you in productive water.

A guide is also priceless for getting your “better half” or less experienced fishing partner/friend involved.  Catching a fish on the fly is not easy if your a beginner, especially if you have to be the one coaching instead of fishing...that’s our job.  At the end of the day he/she has caught fish, you’ve had very good day on the water, and guess who’s booking the trip for next season...your better half.
