Here are some answers to frequently asked questions please feel

What do I need to bring for a fly fishing trip?
Basic fly fishing necessities are a hat, polarized sunglasses,
earth tone shirt, water, sunscreen, camera, small daypack,
extra layer of clothes and good walking shoes or boots. A California
fishing license is required for anyone 16 years or older and
one day fishing licenses are conveniently available on line.
For 1⁄2 day trips a quick snack and for all day trips
a simple lunch. All the fishing equipment and flies are included
in the price.
Where will we go?
There isn’t a standard fishing trip location, and trip
locations change based on lots of variables. Destinations are
decided by where the best fishing conditions are going to be
on any particular day. Weather, river levels, time of year,
insect hatches, angler skill level and interests are all part
of what determines where we will fish on any particular day.
If there is a place you would like to fish or a technique or
tactic you particularly enjoy or want to learn just let me
Who is going to guide us?
When you book a trip with me you will get a professional independent
local guide with 14 seasons experience and thousands of days
on the water. All my trips are custom and you will not be mixed
in with other groups. I am the guide on every trip. Successful
guiding depends on using the accumulated knowledge of years
of experience to provide a quality outing. Other lodges and
outfitters hire new folks to be fishing guides every season
as part of their activities programs. As a Yosemite resident
and fly fisher for over 30 years I feel confident that I offer
the best guided fly fishing trips available.
Will we catch fish?
The long summers in the Sierras have very stable weather and
fishing success is extremely consistent. I wont book trips
when I know the fishing isn’t going to be worth your
time or money. Unfortunately I am sometimes forced to cancel
a trip if sudden changes in conditions don’t favor a
successful day. Nature sometimes has a way of changing the
best planned fishing days. When I cancel a trip there is of
course no charge and I will try to reschedule whenever possible.
