Planning Your Trip

   As the popularity of fly fishing grows, it seems that everyone with a couple years experience is suddenly a "Guide". SILVER DOCTOR FLY FISHING is featured in the books Great Lakes Steelhead-a Guided Tour for Fly Anglers, Best Streams for Great Lakes Steelhead, and Fly Fishing for Great Lakes Steelhead-an advanced look at an emerging fishery. I am an FFI Certified Casting Instructor, and have been a demonstration tyer at numerous conclaves, and also conducted the first ever speycasting workshop at an International FFF Conclave,(1997-Grand Rapids,MI).
   The key to learning how to fly fish is fishing with the right guide. I believe that my role as a guide is not to guarantee that my clients catch lots of fish, but rather that my clients will learn what it takes to fish effectively. Regardless of weather, water conditions, or hatches, I will make sure your day on the river is enjoyable!

Working with a top end company that understands rod design for everything from our intimate Driftless creeks,
through salt water monsters, & everything in between is exciting.
