Included in a full day guided trip:
Your guided trip will be in a 2014 Calcakcraft Eddy Drift Boat. You are welcome to bring your own equipment. If you don't have your own equipment, you will be supplied with all the equipment you need. I supply Temple Fork Outfitters (TFO) Fly Rods and all Flies are provided during the trip. No extra charge for Flies.

I provide a shore lunch, soft drinks and water. Please advise me on any special dietary needs.

If you feel you could use a little help with your casting, I will help you improve on your casting during the trip down the river. If you are new to Fly Casting, I will take a half an hour or so at the beginning of your day to teach you some casting fundamentals. I will then help you improve on your casting while going down the river on your trip.

Included in a half day trip:
Everything that is included in the full day except snacks are provided instead of a lunch.

Please Understand: 
Catching fish is not a guarantee. What is guaranteed is that I will do everything in my power to make your trip a wonderful experience.
Gratuities are not expected but are greatly appreciated.
