We are a small, exclusive fly fishing guide service that operates year round with a small group of professional, experienced, full-time fishing instructors. We are not a budget operation, but also consider the following:

  • We do not book more than one trip per day, so will not rush you out for the next trip
  • Trips are scheduled at best times to fish, not early and late to squeeze in more trips
  • We do not require 2nd Guide for 3 or more, but you must understand everyone may not get the attention they need. If I bring a 2nd Guide, it will not cost extra.
  • Our half-day trips are usually at least 5 hours (4 hours is not enough for beginners) & full day trips at least 8 hours
  • We specialize in teaching beginners, but can also teach old dogs some new tricks

We Provide All the Fishing Gear You Need

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

We have all the waders, boots, fly fishing equipment and flies you need. You are welcome to use your own gear unless you have duck hunting waders with rubber boots. These are not safe when walking on slick river rocks.

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

Because of the travel time involved, special trips to remote streams are full-day trips only and are dependent more upon the season than the weather.

We fish all year round and in all weather, so bring rain gear if it looks like rain or your cold weather gear if it’s cold, but we will try take care of you if you’re not prepared. Remember to bring a pair of socks (above the ankle) for wading.

Cancellation Policy

Rescheduling or canceling fishing trips creates booking and scheduling conflicts or leaves guides without a trip for that day.

We understand that unforeseen situations may arise which can affect travel plans.

We only require a minimal $50 deposit for booking a trip.

We prefer payment by Venmo or Zelle, because of the high fees charged by credit card companies, but can accept credit cards, Paypal or checks. We can always accept cash.

Below is our booking and cancellation policy.

  • A full refund of the deposit will be issued for fishing trips canceled at least 14 days prior to the trip date – or you will have the option to apply your deposit for a later date within two years.
  • Guided fishing trips that cancel 14 days to 48 hours prior to the trip date will result in a 50% cancellation fee ($25 refund).
  • Fishing trips that cancel less than 48 hours, or in the event of a “no show”, will result in the forfeiture of deposit.

Guided fishing trips proceed, regardless of weather or water conditions.

Therefore, inclement weather or undesirable fishing conditions are NOT acceptable reasons to cancel and have a deposit refunded.

Though it has never happened… in the event of dangerous weather condition, we reserves the right to cancel the trip.

Only your fishing guide may cancel your guided trip within 24 hours of your scheduled trip date due to weather without forfeiture of trip deposit.

In the event your reservation is canceled, you will have the option to apply your deposit towards a future trip within two years or your deposit will be refunded.
