We will also cover fly selection, water safety and much more.  Bring your own equipment or use mine. You will need your ownwaders, polarized sunglasses, and hat. Rain gear and a wading stick are advisable depending on conditions. By the end of the day you will be armed with a thorough understanding of fly casting and capable of fishing on your own.

Fishing Buddy Service:

If you are new to fly fishing for trout or unfamiliar with the White and Norfork Rivers, I’ll be happy accompany you on a half day or full day wade fishing trip (subject to tailwater generation). I’ll coach you on casting technique, where to fish, how to recognize a hit and netting a fish. This is not a full-service guide trip. My goal is to help you build confidence to fish independently.  This is a personalized service that you and I will create together.  The cost is $35/hour.  


Kids Programs:

I love kids, and I really enjoy introducing kids to fishing!  One program I love to do is Dry Run Creek Fishing. Just next to the Norfork Hatchery at the base of the Norfork Dam, is Dry Run Creek.  Dry Run Creek was designed to accomodate stocking trout and easy access fishing for the handicapped impaired and for children under the age of 16.  Specially designed walk ways, ramps and fishing platforms, allow for wheelchairs, and easy access allows children to wade in safely.  Dry Run Creek is always full of big, beautiful trout.  When children are able to fly fish and actually catch a trout easily, they are fans of fly fishing for life!  One of my favorite things about my job is introducing kids to fishing, and this is a great place to do this!  The cost is $35/hour for one child.  If there are additional children, the cost is $10/per additional child.  Please contact me about a group program or individual lessons for children.
