Landon’s angling success is fueled by an addiction to pursuing large trout with small flies and lightweight fly-fishing equipment – it is this obsession that makes him a perfect match for Bauer. He enthusiastically teaches and demonstrates his techniques and on-river knowledge to fellow anglers and has developed innovative strategies for sighting, hooking, and landing selective trout that he has shares in four instructional books as well as two DVDs. In addition to teaching through guided trips, fly-fishing classes, presentations, and demonstrations, he is also a contributing writer for Fly Fisherman and High Country Angler magazines.
Landon has been guiding full time on the South Platte River for the last 19 years, as well as one full season on the Nak Nek River in AK. When not on the river or traveling you’ll find him home with his family in Florissant, Colorado.
Brian started tying flies at the age of 10. By age 14, several Oregon fly shops were purchasing his flies. He cut his teeth guiding fly anglers on the rivers of Mt. Hood. Now a grizzled veteran in his fourth decade of guiding fly anglers for trout and steelhead on Oregon’s best rivers, Brian brings a lot to the table for Winston Fly Rods. Silvey was one the pioneers of Spey casting in North America and has been teaching and demonstrating Spey techniques since the early 1990s. When he is not on the oars, you can find Brian designing wildly productive trout and steelhead flies at his tying bench. He makes his home in Maupin, OR near the Deschutes River.
Nothing puts a smile on Marlon Rampy’s face like the trophy, redband rainbows and wild steelhead of Southern Oregon. Consequently, he calls the banks of the Williamson River home each summer, and heads West to winter in steelhead paradise.
Since 1995, he has shared his passion for the Klamath basin and Rogue River system through his Wild West Flyfishing Guide Service. The combination of Marlon’s experience on the water, emphasis on instruction, and expertise in finding fish, make him one of the most sought after guides in our region
So whether it is long leaders and spring creeks, sight casting on stillwaters, or steelhead on the swing, Marlon’s got it dialed.
Originally from Southeast Kansas, Kyle received his first fly rod at age 10 and immediately began harassing any available fish that would eat a fly. Now, 20 years later, his love for the sport and passion for sharing the great outdoors with others continues to grow by the day. Kyle has fished extensively throughout the Midwest and Rocky Mountains, as well as nearly a dozen saltwater locations. He is a very patient, energetic and knowledgeable instructor who loves nothing more than helping people catch that first fish on a fly.
Born and raised in Denmark, Europe, Jakob Lund spent his early fly fishing years pursuing sea-run brown trout and northern pike. In the late ’80’s he traveled west to the United States (location Oregon) as an exchange student and never left. Jakob quickly learned of Oregon’s north coast river systems, the Deschutes River, and 25 years later, considers those among his home waters.
“The Viking” has guide experience in Oregon, Alaska and Kamchatka. With Jakob’s fly fishing retail background, world travel and guide experience, his overall knowledge of fly fishing as a whole is greatly well rounded. Jakob has appeared in several fly fishing films always fishing with Bauer reels for good reasons. Many of the places seen in these films are shot in waters Jakob calls home. With over a decade of experience fishing, testing and selling out Bauer reels, he knows our product as well as the rivers he fishes like the back of his hand.
