Went for a half day fishing with Jeff. This was my first time fly fishing. Jeff was extremely patient, knowledgeable and instructive, and, yes, I did catch fish! It was a wonderful experience that I will treasure. I would recommend this unequivocally!

I just did a half day with Jeff, having heard from a friend in Taos he was a great guy, and I needed to visit Red River. It was my birthday, and my wife and son had never fly fished. Jeff gave them a quick explanation of technique in a sweet little spot 10 minutes from town. He pointed me... More

Jeff helped my dad and I learn new ways to cast and was very personable. He taught us more about what flies to use at what times and took us through the different stages and categories of the "hatch" to help us know when and how to use certain flies.

Not only did we catch some beautiful fish in some amazing spots, but Jeff was terrific with both me and my son. I had asked him to focus on the basics and he was simply perfect. From teaching about the bugs and basic techniques to showing tremendous patience with a young man who sometimes loses focus, it was a fantastic... More

We paid for a guided 6 hour fly fishing trip and only received 4 hours. This was a huge disappointment to us as we came from out of state and planned this to be a full day activity. I In addition, part of our time was spent filling out license paperwork and driving 30 minutes to the fishing site. I... More

I have now been fly fishing with Jeff Fagan twice in Red River. The best thing about the service is not only have I caught fish, but I have learned so much about the area and fly fishing that I would pay their fee for just the education alone. On both experience Jeff was prompt and well prepared for the... More

Never fished but our 14 yo son kept bugging us to go fishing so... Oh wow, was he right! Todd Massey was fun, patient and taught us all (mom, dad, 14 yo son and 12 yo daughter) what all the excitement is about. Jeff got us set up, communication was great. The equipment was fine for what we were doing.... More
