Rambling Reports Guiding Service Options
I am happy to provide whatever instruction and
guidance you may need! I've been fly fishing for the last 18 years
on both lakes and streams - I can help you get on target and into
more fish. I can also help you break nasty habits. The day can be
as simple as "cast there" or we can get as deeply into
theory, practice and tactics as you'd like.
Unlike most guides, I over a few different levels
of service and guiding options. This allows you to customize your
trip to be exactly what you're looking for at the price that best
suits your wallet. Service levels are selected when booking your
- Pro Guide Service
Level - 100% your traditional guided trip. Focused attention
and service for your entire overall fishing experience. Even if
you have no experience and just want to come and catch fish, great.
I'll tie your knots and flies, net your fish, have a rod ready
should you break off, coach you every step of the way from hookset
to landing. In every respect, the full-service trip.
- Team Fishing Service
Level - a lot of guides (and authors) will tell you that
it's absolutely a crime for your fishing guide to actually fish
himself during a guided trip. Rubbish! Whether your guide should
fish or not depends entirely on what you need from the guide.
If you're an experienced fly angler who doesn't need someone tying
his knots, landing his fish, potentially coaching his every move,
this may be the perfect service level for you. Team Fishing is
even more effective at dissecting the day's angling problems;
you have another highly experienced angler (your guide) as an
actively participating member of your fishing party. Having another
line in the water means quicker results, especially on tough fishing
days. I'm still going to put you, the client, on the absolute
best water while I fish secondary spots. I'm not planning to disappear
downstream unless we agree that some scouting is in order. I'll
still provide flies if you need them, but would rather show you
what YOU have in your box that will work.
- Trip Photography
- As you can see from my reports, I love nothing more than capturing
the memories of every day spent on the water. All guided trips
at all service levels include hi-resolution print quality digital
photography at no additional charge. A .zip file containing ALL
the original images shot during your outing is posted online for
download (high speed connections recommended) - you can download
and print as you please. I am also able to provide images on CD,
quality prints and enlargements - fees are quoted on a project-by-project
See locations for service level rates.
