Kirby exceed our greatest expectations. Had us catching fish in the 1st hour out. Lost track of how many fish we caught. It was such an amazing and memorable day. Catching the biggest fish we have every dreamed of catching. Cant wait to get out with him again.

Corey is an awesome guide! We have been several times with other guides (and other companies) and prefer Foscoe (Boone fly shop) to the rest. Super easy to contact and great trips each time we've gone. We finally took the plunge and bought some cheap rods and our guide, Corey, was gracious enough to get us setup for our solo adventures. Appreciate the help, we are hooked on fly fishing now!

Had an absolute blast whipping with these guys. Knowledgeable, friendly, and humble. Stewards of their local environment and conservation of everything we love as outdoorsman. I can’t recommend them enough.

Skye as a fly fishing guide with High Country guide service made our adventure so much fun! Skye is extremely knowledgeable of the sport and creates such an environment that makes you want to keep learning. He was very patient with us being newbies and was very encouraging in the cold and rain. Skye has given us the desire to get out there again soon! Thanks Skye!!

Did a half-day trip with Kirby. We went out in the snow and freezing temps for my first fly fishing trip ever and had a blast. Even caught a couple of beautiful rainbows and a large brown. He taught me about reading water, tying knots, strategy and technique and was able to pick out my bad habits to teach me a better way. I would highly recommend.

I went into the trip just wanting to learn how to fly fish. I didn’t expect to really catch any fish. Caught 3! Our group of 5 caught 15 or so fish. David and Colin were great. And can’t forget our mascot Cowboy who brought us good luck.

Hi everyone, adventure and new experiences are imperative for living a life outside the box. I chose this fly fishing experience for my birthday adventure/ bucket list. Nick was my guide and to say he was excellent is selling him short. I went on this tour not knowing anything about how to fly fish. I chose it because I love outdoors everything!!! I was not disappointed. Nick was so kind, patient and knowledgeable. We went to some spectacular spots. My very first cast ever in my life I caught a speckled brown. Obviously I had a wonderful experience and Nick was the catalyst for my beautiful birthday adventure and celebration. Thank you Nick 😊

Had an amazing day with Nick today. Outfitted us with all the gear we needed and then off to a great day of learning the right techniques to catch some fish. Nick was awesome and my son, husband and myself had a great day catching trout. Highly recommend if you will be in the area.
