Let us be the guide on your next great fly fishing adventure.
The Sierras present some of the most challenging fly fishing opportunities I’ve ever encountered. Brendan is hands-down the best guide in the area. His knowledge of local water, his teaching skill, and his desire to put clients on fish is unsurpassed. Whether we are throwing dries, stripping streamers, or running nymphs- Brendan has always put me on monster trout! I love fishing with him and look forward to every trip!
Brendan is the best fly-fishing guide I’ve ever hired. He and his team are great with small groups as well as larger ones. The last time we went out with him was with group of 6 guys. Brendan is knowlegable and a really good and patient teacher, which is important to me because I want to learn and get better at casting, tying flies, etc. The proof is in the results … each time I’ve gone out with him I’ve caught fish!
Had an awesome time with Jarrod in my first fly fishing experience. He is extremely knowledgeable and patient and is able to impart lots of information while also respecting the beauty of his surroundings. He let me make my casting mistakes and learn on my own schedule, which I really appreciated! He’s a local and knows tons about the area, you could probably hire him for the same rates just to take you around and talk about the history of the area and still be knocked out. On top of everything he might have the coolest dog ever.

Well, Dan set me up with Jarrod who I met the next morning. Jarrod was a great guide and cool person to chew the fat with as well. We went to a part of the Truckee and fished a few different spots. Being a newbie, Jarrod answered all of my questions pertaining to proper etiquette and protocols in addition to what to look out for in identifying good fishing spots.
In regards to the actual fishing, I got 4 hours of actual fishing time. Jarrod spent the time setting up the rods and just let me fish. While fishing, Jarrod imparted more knowledge about fly fishing and what flies to use that are appropriate for an area. He also provided instruction on proper casting techniques and how to reel a fish in in addition to proper catch and release techniques.
Overall, had a great time and a positive experience. If you end up with Jarrod as your guide, definitely ask him about his modified Toyota!
