Recommendations for Fishing with Jim and Dan

Jim O’Neal is not only one of the most knowledgeable fly fishers I know with better than 40 years experience on Utah waters; he is a gifted teacher as well.

Jim has the ability to work patiently with beginners & strives at making women, children and 1st timers at ease almost right away.

I recommend him frequently when people ask me who to contact for both guided fly fishing trips and for lessons” – Julie Zicha Fall River Fly Rods

Excerpt (Read entire testimonial): The Provo River is a very technical river to fish… most people need assistance from a guide to catch fish… One guide stands out from the rest. Jim O’Neal. – Phil Bair

Excerpt (Read entire testimonial): … our time together fishing the Middle Provo was a game changer. My son and I both landed a lot of fish, but more importantly we caught a glimpse of what was possible by watching Jim and Dan demonstrate how to fish… – Mark Nielson.

Dan and Jim provide the ultimate outdoor experience… and you will catch fish!

They have decades of experience in fly fishing and also exceptional knowledge of local ecosystems, so you will come away learning more than just fishing.

I have fished with guides from coast to coast and these guys are as patient and knowledgeable as you will find anywhere.” – Barry, Cary NC

“Dan and Jim are the best. I have fished around the World but had an absolute wonderful learning experience with these two recently.

They are patient, have a wealth of knowledge, and you will get into more fish than you know what to do with.

I will gladly fish with them anywhere and anytime” – Jim Hickman

My experiences with Jim O’Neal have convinced me of the deep understanding that he has of trout! He knows their natural home and environment well, he knows their many feeding patterns, and also where they are located morning, noon and evenings on our rivers.

And, he knows the bugs in the river and the right intimation to use! He has a wealth of information that has come from many years of experience and dedication to this exciting sport.

Besides all of this, Jim is a really nice person, I would highly recommend him” – Don W. Pectol

My favorite story about Jim’s experience – Back in the early 1960s, Jim was working in a sporting goods store in Salt Lake City… A crew from National Geographic Magazine was shooting photos in Utah… They came into the store to ask where they could find a fly fishing guide…Jim told them there were none that he knew of, but it they could wait until he got off work, he would take them fishing.
