Your Fly Fishing Guides – About Us

Jim – Many of you already know Jim O’Neal (on right in photo) and have fished with him as he has guided many folks for the years on the Provo River and surrounding areas.

Jim has fly fished the Provo River for 50 years and was guiding folks before it was “cool” and long before guiding became a way to make a living.

Jim was born in Tennessee and raised in Texas. Jim came to Utah to attend Brigham Young University. He met his wife and stayed in Utah and raised a family.

Jim is a lifelong fly fisherman who was taught by his grandfather (also a lifelong fisherman). Jim tied his first dry fly and caught his first rainbow trout in 1953.

From my experience, Jim’s favorite activities are fly fishing, taking video while fishing and teaching people to fly fish.

Dan – I was born and raised in North Carolina and came to Utah in 1992 to continue Graduate School at Utah State.

I worked as a wildlife Biologist for the Utah Division of Wildlife for 14 years.

As a young man, I built fish ponds in West Africa and lived there for almost three years.

I’ve been a lifelong fisherman, but my fly fishing education didn’t really progress until I met Jim.

Jim and I regularly fish and take fishing videos together. Jim tells me he’s got me fully trained now, but I still learn something new every time we fish.

I think we make a unique team, not just a couple of fishing guides.

We Provide All the Fishing Gear You Need

It doesn’t matter if you don’t have any fishing gear with you or you just want to try out different gear, we have everything you need.

You are welcome to bring your own gear, but we have all the waders, boots, fly fishing equipment and flies you need, including Jim’s special hand tied flies that you won’t find anywhere else.

The majority of our guided trips are on the Middle or Lower Provo River system, but we often fish more remote rivers and streams.

You can go with us if you like, but because of the travel involved, these trips are full-day trips and are dependent more upon the season than the weather.

We fish in all weather, so you should bring your own rain if it looks like rain or your cold weather gear if its cold, but we won’t let you freeze if you’re not prepared. Also, bring a pair of socks (above the ankle) for wading.

We usually take video while we’re fishing, but we won’t force you to take a copy of your fishing trip home with you.
