Guided Fishing Trips

Guided Fishing Trips
* I did not guide in 2020 due to Covid 19. Due to Covid and my age I am reducing my guiding for 2021. I will only be guiding repeat clients and only if they have been fully vaccinated. Rates will be negotiated depending upon length of the day. We may or may not ride to the streams together depending upon CDC guidelines. I will provide cold beverages but not necessarily lunch.

* All flies used during the day are included. Jim is a master fly tier and has many proven patterns for the area streams.

* Premium fly rod and reel outfits can be provided or you may bring you own. Fly rods for 3 to 5 weight lines are recommended.
* Presenting the fly is a key to success. Fishing techniques, casting techniques, and reading the water to understand where to find trout are part of a day on the stream.

* A Wisconsin Fishing License and Inland Trout Stamp are needed. These can be purchased online. 

* Bring wading gear, Polaroid sunglasses, sunscreen, a rain coat, and a great attitude for a fun day.
