why choose us

Book with

We are unapologetic about proclaiming the prowess and professionalism of our fly shop staff and guides. Between our shop staff and subcontractor guides we have approximately 15 team members. Their blend of ambition, competitiveness, kindness, fishing skill, work ethic, and patience are like no crew we’ve ever seen. Our staff is the ultimate team. This means teaching each other, sharing secret fly patterns, insider fishing reports, and helping our other guides on the river get into more fish.  The Hungry Trout has been at this for a long time and putting together an outfit like this was no accident. We look for talent, character, unique skills, and a strong sense of “customer first” attitude. We’re here to serve the customer. That’s our mission.
