His easy going laid back style insures that your day on the water will be just what you want it to be.  Don takes pride in making sure that all clients, whether new to the sport or a seasoned angler, take away one new technique or tid-bit that will enhance their future fly fishing experiences.

~Liz Weirauch, Owner / Guide / Instructor~
Liz has been fishing her entire life, from the warm water fisheries of Michigan where she was born to the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and with her husband on the Pacific Ocean for big game fish and surf fish.  A decade plus of fly fishing in the Eastern Sierra and teaching her love of the sport has given Liz a unique look at trout psychology and habits that will increase your knowledge and love of fly fishing.  Liz loves fishing and is more than willing to pass on her excitement and gratification of enticing a fish to take a fly.

"Fly Fishing, is the only hunting endeavor where the quarry can be released unharmed to be hunted another day."

~Jim Crouse, Guide / Instructor~
Jim Crouse has thirty plus years experience guiding on Tahoe area fly fishing waters.  In Jim's spare time... He manages and oversees the Private Water fishery, Pleasant Valley Fly Fishing Preserve, a spectacular fishery here in the Eastern Sierra. 

Jim can spin tales of the 130 plus years of history in the Sierra Alps, while calmly instructing you on how to make the perfect drift for large rainbows lurking under a cut bank.  He'll take the time to teach you about the entomology of a trout stream and train you in matching the hatch to entice a take by leery trout.

Jose loves the waters we have here locally in the Eastern Sierras, and is constantly developing new flies and techniques to better the fishing experience for his clients
