For more than two decades I have been fly fishing the clear, spring creeks that make up the Driftless Region and it’s my passion to share these beautiful and unique waters with you. If big flies and big fish are your interest, I can also treat you to an out-west experience on some of western Wisconsin's finest rivers - all from the comfort of my safe and stable drift boat. I promise to work hard to put you on the most productive waters, learn about the area, build on your skills and leave a better angler.  

    Welcome To The Quiet Waters of The Driftless

    There are hundreds of miles of quiet waters to explore and we'll take our time to find the most productive stretches as you get to enjoy the beauty of the Driftless.
