Gilbert Rowley

Guide Locations: Provo River, Weber River, Logan area and other local/secret streams.

Hometown: Monticello, UT

Favorite kind of fly fishing: All types of nymphing, but especially European styles as of lately. I love placing my flies in the underwater world, delivering counterfeit meals to hungry fish. When the golden flash of a giant brown trout rolls from the deep, I still get excited like it was my first fish!

Bio and why I like guiding: I got my first fly rod when I was 14, but it wasn’t until 2005 that fly fishing truly took over my life. Fly fishing is more than a hobby, it’s an addiction, and I love to share my passion with anyone and everyone who is interested at all. As I pass along the skills that I have acquired, friendships are formed and memories are made. What more could a fisherman want from a day’s work?!

Education: B.S. in Fisheries and Aquatic Science from Utah Sate University.

Other Interests: Fly tying, big game hunting, backpacking, basketball (GO JAZZ!), and most of all, I love spending time with my wife and two-year-old son, Andrew.

Steve Harvey

Guide Locations: Provo River, Weber River, and other local/secret streams.

Hometown: Millcreek, UT

Favorite kind of fly fishing: Dry fly and soft hackle. The next best thing to a big brown sipping your fly is to have one SLAM into a softie on the swing! I also love to stalk big rainbows on the Henry’s Fork River.

Bio and why I like guiding: I love fly fishing! I have had a deep passion for this sport for as long as I can remember. I love to see people smile and their faces light up when they catch fish on a fly rod. There is truly something magical about it. Whether it be instructing a novice or catering to the accomplished angler in search of the most incredible time of their life, my goal is to provide a great fly fishing adventure where we have fun and catch plenty of fish.

Other Interests: Fly tying, camping, playing guitar, golf, and spending time with my wife and twin daughters.

Hometown: Clinton, UT

Favorite kind of fly fishing: Sight Fishing

Bio and why I like guiding: My passion for fly fishing started when I was young, spending all my free time in the Uinta’s fishing the small stream’s and lake’s. When a friend of mine took me fishing to Idaho I knew I had found what I wanted to pursue…fly fishing. I love traveling the western states, chasing a variety of species of fish, from trout to warm water. I love the sport, the areas it takes me to and the people I get to meet along the way. I work hard to get my clients on fish so they have a great experience and have fun too.

Other Interests: Floating/fishing from his drift boat, fly tying, camping and hanging with his family.

Larry Tullis

Guide Locations: Provo River, Weber River, and other Utah streams and lakes. Previously guided: Alaska, Chile, Idaho, Montana, PA/NY and the Green River in Utah and Wyoming.

Hometown: Pleasant Grove, UT

Favorite kind of fly fishing: I like all types of fly fishing but consider nymph fishing to be the most versatile and productive method on most days in local rivers. I love it when fish look for dry flies, emergers, and streamers, too. I love Tenkara fishing when the situation calls for delicate presentations.

Bio and why I like guiding: I am a veteran professional fly fisherman with lots of experience from Kamchatka to Patagonia but still consider the Provo River my hallowed home waters. I have guided anglers 25+ years in Idaho, Montana, Utah, Wyoming, NY/PA, Alaska, and Chile plus worked in several fishing pro shops. I have 6 books and over 100 articles published and do speaking engagements/shows across the country. I am a consultant for various outdoor products, lodges, and design companies and sells state-of-the-art inflatable fishing boats for North Fork Outdoors. I design flies for Rainy’s Flies. Even though I have been at it a long time, I always get excited by fishing and taking people out and trying to teach them to fish as I would in a situation. Makes me feel young again when a plan comes together!

Education: Self-styled degree in fly fishing.

Other Interests: Writing, Photography, Illustration, Adventure travel, Watercraft of all types, Woodworking, Camping, Backpacking, etc.

Morgan Nowels

Guide Locations: Provo River, Weber River, and other local/secret streams

Hometown: Newman Lake, WA

Favorite kind of fly fishing: I love sight fishing. There is nothing like making the perfect cast and watching in anticipation as the fish inhales your fly. I also love fly fishing in the backcountry and spending time exploring remote waters. Exploration is one of the best parts of fly fishing.

Bio and why I like guiding: I began fly fishing when I was 14 years old. My dad took me to the stream he began fly fishing on in Western Montana, where I was fortunate enough to catch some pretty stupid fish on a gas station-bought Adams dry fly. Since that day, I have spent all of my free time studying fly fishing and exploring waters all across the West; mainly the Idaho Panhandle, Montana, and Utah. I love guiding because it gives me the opportunity to share my passion with others. I love that for my job I get to take people to beautiful places to have fun! To me, there is nothing more satisfying than seeing someone having a great day out on the water and being there to share it with them.

Education: B.S. in Accountancy from Brigham Young University

Other Interests: Hanging out with my wife and dog. Rock climbing, fly tying, backpacking/hiking, skiing, bird hunting, and anything else outside.

Lane McKellar

Guide Locations: Weber River and Provo River.

Hometown: Sedalia, CO

Favorite kind of fly fishing: I like all types of fly fishing but consider nymph fishing to be the most versatile and productive method on most days in local rivers. I love it when fish look for dry flies, emergers, and streamers, too. I love Tenkara fishing when the situation calls for delicate presentations.

Bio and why I like guiding: My first time fly fishing was at age 10, using my dad’s fly rod combo. By age 12, I was hooked and asked to be mentored by anyone who would teach me. Fly fishing quickly became about solace, escape, relationships, and catching beautiful fish in awe-inspiring settings. I enjoy teaching others and continuing to create relationships with clients in those settings.

Education: B.S. in Business Information Systems from Utah Sate University

Other Interests: Exploring all that the Mountain West has to offer. I love adventures where I can teach my family to respect and love the great outdoors. I also have a real passion for training my duck hunting dog, Lily.

Caleb Deppermann

Guide Locations: Lower Provo, Middle Provo, Green River and other local/secret streams

Hometown: Provo, UT

Favorite kind of fly fishing: Euro/Czeck nymphing. I like this method because of its productivity and solution to the problem of getting a near-perfectly drag-free drift. Czeck nymphing also combines visual and tactile elements by allowing you to both see and feel the strike before setting the hook. In addition, euro/czeck nymphing opens up lots of water types for productive fishing. (FYI Euro/czeck nymphing is a method of sub-surface fishing that uses heavily weighted flies and no strike indicator but which allows the angler to match current speeds at the bottom of the
water column.)

Bio and why I like guiding: guiding: I grew up bass and panfish fishing in lakes around my family’s small-time grain farm in central Illinois. After moving to Utah and learning to fly fish, I’ve been hooked ever since. I am passionate about fly fishing because of the scientific aspect of it. A river is different every single day with varying flows and insect hatches. I love the process of reading the water, reading the hatch, choosing a rigging style, making a fly selection and seeing it all come together. I like guiding because I am passionate about helping new comers get past the steep learning curve involved with narrowing down all the variables of making a successful trip. Fly fishing is so fun everyone should get the chance to experience it firsthand and have success doing so!

Education: Currently completing my Bachelor’s Degree in Classical Studies at Brigham Young University.

Other Interests: Fly tying, entomology, and studying Classical Greek and Latin.

Tim Nation

Guide Locations: Provo River and Weber River

Hometown: Salem, IL

Favorite kind of fly fishing: Big fish on streamers mostly but I love all sorts of fly fishing, actually I just love any kind of fishing. There’s nothing like fishing all over the country for the thrill of a fish on the fly.

Bio and why I like guiding: I started fly fishing when I was seven and absolutely fell in love with it and been an avid fly fisherman ever since. I love to see someone catch a trophy fish or a fish for the first time and make sure they have a really good time while doing it. I think getting to fish and be out in some of the most beautiful mountains and streams in the country and getting to meet new people might just be the best job in the world.

Education: Oklahoma State Horseshoeing School

Other Interests: Farriery, blacksmithing, tying flies, and hunting.

Aaron Anderson

Guide Locations: Lower Provo, Middle Provo, Upper Provo, Weber River, and other secret streams.

Hometown: Draper, Utah

Favorite kind of fly fishing: Euro/Czech nymphing and streamer fishing. Depending on the time of year I typically will tight line Euro nymph. In the many years I have fly fished, I have not found a better way to catch more and bigger fish. Creating that natural drift and feeling the fish take your nymph is something truly remarkable. During the fall when the browns get really aggressive I love throwing big streamers. Seeing a huge trout come out of the shadows and smash my fly gives me an adrenaline rush.

Bio and why I like guiding: I started fly fishing 15 years ago. My grandpa took me to the upper provo and created the addiction that has become my favorite hobby today. I still remember the first fish I caught. The sight of the trout siping my dry fly from the surface has forever been burned into my memory. I grew up fishing the local tail waters in Utah. Fly fishing on rivers is my passion. I started “guiding” when I was 16 years old. I didn’t work for a company but guided all my friends and family. I wanted fishing buddies, so I had to teach them. There is just something about teaching some how to fish. Seeing a smile on someones face as they reel one in brings me joy and excitement. I want to show others my passion and help them enjoy their fishing experience. I hope to see you on the river!

Education: Finishing my communications bachelors degree at UVU

Other Interests: Spending time with my wife, camping, hunting, traveling the world, and watching movies.

Isaac Cole

Guide Locations: Provo River

Hometown: Salt Lake City, Utah

Favorite kind of fly fishing: I like every type of fly fishing, but there’s nothing I love more than seeing fish come up for your dry fly on top of the water. I really enjoy fishing the midge hatch in the winter. The river is quiet and beautiful.

Bio and why I like guiding: I partly grew up in Mexico, along the Sea of Cortez, and spent a lot of time on the water, spearfishing and camping. So when I moved to Utah, I took up fly fishing and quickly became addicted. Teaching others how to catch a fish using a fly rod is almost as fun as catching one yourself!

Education: BFA in Film from New York University.

Other Interests: I have a film degree and enjoy writing and making movies, as well as backpacking, camping, and taking long road trips across America.
