Each GuideBox is curated with the right flies, the right leader and the right gear for your river, at the time you want to fish it. Also included with each box is a detailed river map, guide notes, a handful of stickers, and a mystery surprise for on or off the water. Your GuideBox contains all the information and equipment you need to become a proficient and ethical angler, and subscribers gain access to a members only web and mobile portal with up to the minute river information, water conditions, guide notes and instructional content.

Togens Custom Hooks & Beads
I’d like to announce my partnership with Togens Fly Shop in using their hooks and beads exclusively for my guide service, and myself. I’m super stoked to have this opportunity as Togens makes some really cool and innovative products for creating custom flies. They offer many different bends and styles of hooks like the 3 times heavy scud hooks in sizes 18 and 20 – Those are really hard to find! They’ve also just added a 60 degree jig style hook for Euro Nymphing flies as well.
