Mat is personable, knowledgable, and is the best fly fishing guide in the Midwest!! He knows where the fish are biting and is an entertaining guide. I highly recommend him to friends from far and wide....last friend came from Japan to fish with Mat.

Mat and Geri run this fly shop as fly fisherman. They really know the area and are willing to share their knowledge. Very good selection of equipment at fair prices.

All food prepared in this restaurant is within I believe 100 miles. Amazing while interesting. You do not get fresher than this. You will find locals enjoying the amazing dishes also and willing to share in local conversations with you. It is not fancy at...More

Thanks for the review, however I think you may have wanted to leave this review for our neighbor the Driftless Cafe, which we agree is top notch! Hope to fish with you again soon!

Spent a late afternoon/early evening fly-fishing a trout stream near Viroqua under the guidance of Matt, the co-owner of Driftless Angler. My son and I had a great time. It was our first time fly-fishing so it was quite an experience to learn a new...More
