On The Fly Guide Service is the longest standing and most reputable guide service in southeast Minnesota and has been guiding anglers from all over the world since 1998. I am an independent guide service and operate with the interests of my clients and am not affiliated with any corporate fly fishing company as some other guide services in the Driftless area.
Whether you are new to the sport and want to learn about fly fishing, someone looking to fine tune their skills, or an out of towner looking to get out and catch some trout, I cater to all ability levels and skills.
Upcoming available dates: July 5-6, July 10-16 (AM 1/2 day Only), July 30-August 2, 6-7, 10-12, 18-19, 25. Contact me directly if you're looking to set up a trip.

What to Bring:
Fly Rod and Reel: If you have your own gear and prefer to fish it, please do; otherwise, I have rods and reels to outfit each angler for a day on the water.
