Certified Fly Casting Instructor

Earn many memorable miles with Miles

“Watching people get excited about all the things I love about fishing shows me that guiding is what I always wanted to do. While I love catching big fish myself, sharing that experience with someone else new to the sport is something I enjoy just as much.”

A Hailey, Idaho native, Miles grew up locally but eventually left his home to explore the waters of the Pacific Northwest and Montana. Nothing quite compared to Idaho and, as he says, “the best way to know where you’re from is to leave it.” Now that he’s back in his original stomping grounds,

you can find Miles casting Woolly Buggers or Gypsy Kings in our local rivers trying to land the next big fish. At the end of the day, there’s nothing Miles enjoys more than to toss back a Dagger Falls IPA while tying new flies to make up for the ones he lost and get ready to do it all over again the next day.

What folks say about fishing with Miles

I had Miles, a great down to earth guy. He was so very interested in Thomas (my 15 year old) and me…. Miles was very patient and encouraging when we did well. He really wanted us to catch fish, but also was concerned about our technique. He really respects the sport.

Miles was our guide and we were very pleased. We were a little anxious since it was our first time fly fishing but he set our mind at ease very early and helped us catch many fish. This was our first time but not our last!

Lance and Miles were terrific! My son and son-in-law are relatively inexperienced anglers and Lance was extremely patient and instructive with them the entire day–they had a very enjoyable experience. Miles and I were in the same boat and I had the best day fly fishing in my life. He was extremely helpful in improving my technique and his choice of flies was right on all day–we caught a lot of fish. We’re definitely coming back next year!
