Guided Fishing Trips

Guided Fishing Trips
* A day trip for 1 to 3 anglers includes transportation from Madison, Wisconsin to the selected streams. If you are staying in the Driftless Area, Jim will pick you up at your motel, bed and breakfast, or campground.

* 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.

* Sometime during the day you will pause for a grilled gourmet lunch. Ask about menu choices or let Jim prepare one of his delicious favorites.
* 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.

* If you are interested in the aquatic entomology of the streams, Jim will do an insect sampling to give you a better understanding of what food organisms are available to the trout.
* Jim is an excellent photographer and will provide you with photos from the day.

* 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.
