Your business is important to me!
When you write or call, please let me leave your name, a valid phone number (please speak slowly), and what time zone you’re in, and when is a good time for me to reach you. Whenever possible, please also let me know what species you’re hoping to target (please see calendar to get more information on what is running during the year), what your experience is, and a general time frame when you’re wanting to book a trip. I try my best to respond to every email/phone message I receive to let you know what my availibilty is.
Please understand that as a fly fishing guide, I’m often in remote locations and may not be able to respond to your email or phone message instantaneously. Thankfully, there are still a few places left where one cannot get cell phone coverage and/or internet!
Generally I’m able to respond within a day or two – if I haven’t responded it’s either because I was unable to understand your phone number or that I’m away from internet access for a few days. Thank you in advance for your patience.
If you’re interested in booking a trip
Please take a minute and read my guided fly fishing trips page. It explains what I guide for and how I go about it. If you have contacted me, I’m going to assume that you’ve read my guided fly fishing trips page.
If you’re interested in booking a casting class
Please take a minue and red my casting instruction page. This page explains where the class is taught and the cost. To schedule a class, please contact me and let me know how soon you’d like to take a class and whether weekends or weekdays will work better for you.
