What's So different about Tie one on?
TIE ONE ON is all about having a successful fly fishing experience that is defined by you. For the beginner, we can teach you the basics and introduce you to the thrill of netting your first trout. For more experienced anglers, we can focus on technical fishing and try something new; we can take a long drift and hammer the banks with streamers in pursuit of a trophy browns; or we can take a head count trip and skip from hole to hole. Whatever your preference, we will customize your trip and beat your expectations.
Enjoy a comfortable trip in a clean and well-maintained drift boat. A delicious lunch, soft drinks, bottled water, and snacks are included with each full day trip. Snacks, soft drinks, and bottled water are provided for half day trips as well.
A typical full day trip starts at 7:00 or 8am. We will cover anywhere from 2 to 9 miles of river per trip. Traveling in a motorized drift boat, we can move efficiently upstream and downstream and put you on the most productive sections of the river.
What kind of equipment do you use?
We provide flies, lines, tippets, and rods if needed. We use a variety of rods including Sage, Orvis, and Scott. We are able to wade fish using the drift boat to access some off the beaten path areas. Sometimes on a hot summer day, wet wading in the 55-degree water feels great and can be a nice change from floating all day.
What kind of Qualifications do you have?
TIE ONE ON fishing guides operate under a commercial use authorization permit issued by the National Park Service. We are fully insured and our guides are certified by the Red Cross with first aid, CPR, and AED. All of our boats are equipped with PFDs, first aid kits, and all Federal and State safety requirement equipment.
