What’s Included: All trips include beverages and the use of terminal tackle such as flies, leaders, tippet, etc. If you have your own rod and waders bring them along. If not, I can provide that too at no additional charge. Full day trips also include a streamside lunch so big and tasty you may need to adjust your wader belt to finish the day! This ain’t no gas station sandwich – Several repeat customers claimed to have re-booked just for the lunch!
How To Book: With so much of my time spent on the water, it can sometimes be difficult to communicate. For your convenience, I offer an online booking feature which allows you to view all available dates on my calendar and select the trip and date that works for you, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Click any “Click Here to Book Online” box located at the top of every page on this site or click HERE to use this feature. Of course, you can always just pick up the phone or send me an e-mail and I will reply to you as soon as possible. If at all possible, I strongly urge you to book weekday trips. There are significantly fewer people on the water, which provides more options and usually better fishing.
There are frequently gaps in the calendar and I can sometimes handle last minute requests so don’t hesitate to ask, but most dates tend to fill-up 2-4 weeks out. Weekend dates usually fill up even sooner and spring and fall (particularly May & October) are peak seasons which tend to book up sometimes months in advance.
What to Book: Full day trips are the best value and provide not only the most fishing time, but also the most options. Some destinations just can’t be practically accessed in a half day. Our backcountry trips are almost all full days. Half day trips are great for the beginner who wants to get a taste of fly fishing, or for anyone who simply has less time to sneak away for a day on the water.
I just added the ¾ day trip in response to numerous requests. It is mostly designed for tailwater wade trips when a half day just isn’t enough, but a full day isn’t possible because of water release schedules. It also applies well to early and late season trips in the mountains when the fishing may not turn on until 11am and turns off at 5pm. Note that lunch is not provided on these trips so eat a late breakfast or bring a snack!
Two Hour Instructions are designed as a crash course introduction to the sport of fly fishing. They include a basic overview of gear, knots, fly selection, and theory with a focus on casting. These are not fishing trips and are not done on water. Many beginners choose to pair this with a guided trip, or some opt to get these basics and head out on their own. The hourly casting instruction is designed more for folks who possess basic skills and are wanting to advance their casting to the next level.
