If you've ever wanted to nail big Carp on tiny dry flies, this trip is for you! Although when many fly anglers think "fly fishing", they're picturing Trout somewhere in the Rocky Mountains, Riley specializes in finding and hooking lowland species such as Carp and Bass. Catching a carp on the fly is hard at first, which is why your guide loves them, and he would love it even more if he could help you get on one yourself!...Read More
When you go out with one of the guides to chase these feisty specimens you can expect to spend your day wading around lakes and river systems stalking your quarry stealthy and precisely. These fish are very aware of their surroundings, and you get no second chances. It’s either a perfect cast and presentation or the fish spooks, and often, the latter. When they do eat, however, you’re can bet your bottom dollar they're going to take you out to the backing!
Certain times of the year, you can also target smallmouth buffalo on the fly, which grow even larger than carp, and are actually indigenous to Texas waters. Teaching trips are also welcomed for folks that have never held a fly rod. If this trip is more in line with your skill level, you can expect it to be more centered around the fundamentals, rather than finding and catching a fish, but it won't be too long before your out to the backing on a giant carp as well!
Riley is a great guide who loves nothing more than getting out on the water and helping clients find, hook, and land big fish! Whether you're an experienced fly-fisherman or just learning the ropes, Riley will put you where the fish are, make sure your technique is smooth, and be ready with the net when that fish is caught. A trip with him is sure to be a blast!

Light is the name of the game... Big boots can spook fish. I wear water shoe like footwear, like booties almost. So, normal tennis shoes will get you by, but a solid grippy sole is recommended.
Patient and good attitude, fishing license, water, grippy footwear/river shoes, and sun protection.
