My guiding career stretches back over 20 years, from whitewater rafting in New Zealand in the mid 1980’s, through fly fishing in both New Zealand and Colorado since 1990. My priorities for a day on the river are: have fun, have fun, have more fun, and catch a few fish. I have a laid back, personable guiding style, and believe I have done my job when my clients leave the river with a smile on their face and hopefully a few new tips and techniques to ponder. Although real estate is primarily what keeps me busy, I am still available on a limited number of days to guide on the Arkansas from April through October.
The Arkansas River is a great river to fish from a boat, and offers excellent opportunities particularly for dry fly fishing throughout these months.
Due to state licensing and permitting regulations, I conduct my guide trips through ArkAnglers Guide Service, the region’s premier guide service. I charge $450 for a full day float trip for two people, $350 for a solo fisherman. This includes lunch and shuttles. Flies, licenses and gratuity are extra. Please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss availability, river conditions etc.
