Any fishing gear needed (rods and reels, custom tied flies, waders and wading shoes, etc.) is provided for all our trips, at no additional cost. Hors d'oeuvres, a nice lunch, drinks and snacks are also included on our full-day trips. Our trips are based out of the Santa Fe, Chama, and Taos areas as well as on the San Juan River.

Great fishing with professional guides in a beautiful setting. As a novice fly fisherman, not only did I catch quality fish, I learned tons about how to fish. Noah and Shane are incredibly patient and kind people. I highly recommend them !!
