We offer two types of trips:
Guided walk-wade trips work well for those who want the full fishing experience. During your trip, we cover everything included in the lesson (for the beginner) with the ability to apply your new skills. For intermediate and advanced fly anglers, we can find a stream that will challenge your skills!
Float trips work well for those wanting to experience fly fishing from the comfort of a three-man framed raft or drift boat. Float trips can be a great way to experience water like many cannot. There is a certain level of casting ability that come with float trips, we therefore recommend these trips for intermediate and experienced anglers. We have a variety of rivers we float in the region, and will work with you to create a memorable trip. Note: we work hard to ensure satisfaction, so we try to ensure weather and river conditions are suitable to your trip. May- early September are generally the best months to float. Contact us early to start planning your trip!

A valid Iowa fishing license (and trout stamp) is required (not provided) for the trip. Buy yours here.
Three days (72 hours) advance is required for booking.
We strive to make your experience a positive and enjoyable. We guide in various weather conditions depending on your preference. On occasion, however, the trip may need to be altered, postponed or canceled due to weather or water conditions. The guide has complete discretion on this call due to safety or deemed value to your experience due to weather/water conditions. We will be in contact with you prior to your trip. In the case of a canceled trip by the guide, no charge is made to the client OR a refund issued based on payment arrangement.
**Our Trip rates do not include guide gratuity. Guides greatly appreciate gratuity and will work to ensure client satisfaction. If you have any questions regarding gratuity feel free to ask
