Best day trout fishing in a long time! James is a complete professional and a joy to fish with. His knowledge of the river, how to fish, what to fish with, and excellent instruction made for a fantastic day on the San Juan!

I’m new to fly fishing and using About Trout a couple of times has been awesome for me as a newbie (and a great intro to my son most recently), AND for friends of mine who have decades of fishing under their waders. Skill, kindness, listening to client wishes, diligence in the face of whatever conditions the river and weather and fish hand out that day, a thoughtful approach to and explanation of trout, an obvious familiarity with every nook of the river, and a fun and easy and patient spirit make a wade or float trip with About Trout an easy “yes.” Book. Hook. Set. Net.

Best guided fish trip I've ever had. We caught and released so many trout my arm was sore the next day. Nice 20" rainbows and browns. James was excellent, highly recommended.

If the names Devin, Dom, Lance or George mean anything to you book a lesson with this guy. I spent a day this spring high sticking with James and left with a quiver of skills and techniques, and a lot of things to practice. James' teaching style is fun, technical, 'dynamic' and just as important we fished hard. I couldn't have been happier with the time and money spent. I've been working, for a couple of months, on what I learned in that clinic. Yesterday (late June 2021) everything clicked. I netted 2 sets of doubles and landed my highest number of fish in a single session. If you're an experienced euro guy or gal, a day on the water with James, if you apply and work on his teachings, will help you get your blue belt. Thanks James - tight lines

James is, by far, the best guide I’ve ever fished with! He is very knowledgeable, patient, and one of the hardest working people I’ve ever met. To top that all off he’s just fun to be around. My wife caught her biggest fish ever on our trip and she had a blast. I’ve been fly fishing for over 20 years and James still showed me things that were new and helpful and made it fun and interesting. James was able to meet my wife, who is newer to fishing, and I where we are at in our levels of experience and teach us both! Can’t say enough great things about our experience and this man. You will not regret booking James. We will definitely be back.
