Jim O’Neal – Fly Fishing Wisdom

jim's provo river brown troutJim O’Neal has been fly fishing in Utah for over 50 years. For the last 20 years, he has mainly been fishing and guiding on the Provo River and surrounding areas.

Jim used to publish articles in the local newspapers called Wasatch Outdoors.

Copies of these articles were also on his fly fishing school website, but the site is no longer maintained.

I think the articles are too valuable to be lost, so I will start publishing them here.

  • Fly Tying (coming soon)
  • The Ides of March (coming soon)
  • The Right Fly (coming soon)



  1. Thanks for sharing these articles! Jim is a great teacher. It would be fun if he could narrate some of these too.

  2. Wisdom for lost anglers. Jim’s knowledge is a very applicable resource. Glad to have his lessons and encouragement. Always a treat to cross paths to and from the River with Jim.
