Truckeee Guide Network


Over the last few years the  four of us,  Doug Childers,   Frank R. Pisciotta,   John Roberts,  Brian Slusser  have been confident in referring a repeat or new client to each other when either of us was booked.  It has worked wonderfully & there have been many satisfied flyangling clients.  In 2002 we decided to pool this amiable, competitive camaraderie into a more formal association which will ultimately benefit the flyfishing public...for the good.

Consider us the most  personable, competent independent flyfishing guides in the Lake Tahoe area...north or south.  We aim to please: let us know what you want to accomplish and we will tailor your time with us to your specific desires and skill level. Excepting your supply of a fishing license, there are no hidden or unantipated, additional costs.  We'll not charge you  extra money for lunch, nor will we march you into a fly shop where you purchase flies, leader, tippets indicators etc. that you'll use on the guide date.

We are full-time Truckee residents (Doug lives on the west shore of Lake Tahoe) & veteran guides (....way beyond OJTing with unsuspecting clients!). We are an integral part of & connected to a reliable, local info "network";  indicating where flyanglers will have the best probability of success.  We know optimum conditions...whether it be moving or stillwaters.  Additionally, we have the requiste communication, people & teaching skills to introduce the complete novice to the basic skills of flyfishing, or, provide a reliable orientation to the experieced fly angler.  Although we possess diverse temperments; the common denominator that binds us is our mutual passion for flyfishing & thrill of sharing its pleasures with others.

Most of all, we do not take ourselves too seriously, avoid being high-profile, self-promoters & prefer not losing sight of what this sport is about...HAVING FUN! & being intune with the outdoors.

So...if you're looking for a satisfying flyfishing experience in or around our hometown of Truckee, give us a call...you will not regret your decision.
