About Jim and Dan

Jim with another nice Utah Brown Trout.

Jim – Many of you already know or recognize Jim O’Neal 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 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 and teaching people to fly fish. And yes, he also likes to making fly fishing videos.

Check out our fly fishing videos at Jim’s YouTube Channel.

Dan with a fat Provo River Brown Trout.

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 lived in West Africa for almost three years where I built fish ponds.

I’ve been a lifelong fisherman, but my fly fishing education really progressed after Jim and I started fishing together in 2014.

Jim and I regularly fish and take fishing videos together and we always guide together.

We make a unique team, not just a couple of fishing guides. And remember you are getting two fly fishing guides at the same time, so groups of three, four or even five are not a problem for us.

A group of four people anywhere else will have to hire a 2nd guide.
