The Wandering Angler has proudly served the Jackson Hole area for close to 20 years. Fishing is our passion, and we are grateful every day we get to share the experience with others. In fact, if you ask one of our guides what they like to do on their day off, we guarantee their answer is fishing!
Not only are we passionate about catching fish, we also believe that a professional guide is one that is on time, clean, and patient. Our guides arrive early to pick up locations prepared with a clean truck and boat, ready for another great day on the water.
Believe it or not, fishing does come second to our top priority which is safety. Each spring our guides complete First Aid, CPR, and Swiftwater Rescue to better prepare themselves in the event that those skills are needed. Each guide spends hours on each river honing in their skills and understanding the river.
Our guides also check in with guests before each trip to remind them of the importance of sunglasses, sunscreen, and drinking plenty of water. With the right preparation, any day on the water will be an enjoyable one.
Although there are many components to fly fishing, we couldn’t do it without the fish and the rivers they call home. We have the utmost respect for the waters we work on each day and conservation is an important part of the larger picture.
