I'm Wesley Hodges
I was born to fly fish and bird hunt. Yes, my life may have taken some random turns, but my focus always remained true; I am passionate about sharing my sport with clients looking for adventure. There is a moment of shared joy and success when a client lands their first trophy fish or gets their first upland bird. That moment consumes me.
Fly fishing and bird hunting tips, travels, news, and more.
I've had the privilege of working with the finest brands in the industry. I put the wear and tare on gear. I use it long and hard, so I know what works and what doesn't. The gear we use on the trips is top of the line and tested and proven equipment.
A few years ago I was trying to catch my first Muskie. Wes taught me the habits of the fish, the best time of year to pursue them, the type of gear to fish with, best spots to find them, and even how to tie the flies used to catch them. For 3 weeks, he patiently worked with me until I hooked one. Hands down the best guide I have ever used. And I have fished with guides all over the world!!

Fishing with Wes is a riot. He'll always have you laughing but takes guiding very seriously. He got me hooked my first rainbow trout and my first smallmouth—two fish I'll never forget. He also helped me dial in my casting technique. Highly recommend him!
