Certified Fly Casting Instructor

The native & natural

Taite Pearson returned to his Idaho roots after spending what he said was “way too much time in the hustle of big cities.” He decided to stay here because the area is good for the soul. Taite’s first memories of fishing were on the South Platte in Colorado when he was 10 years old. That was the first time he ever held a fly rod. His favorite trip as a guide was when he spent the day with a retired couple

whose goal it was to fish all the world’s greatest trout waters. “I took them to Silver Creek and had the rare pleasure of facilitating a passion for the water that matched or exceeded mine,” he explained. “They continue to update me and share their experiences about the water they discover.”

Guiding Style

Combination. Taite wants to put you into fish and make your day a successful one but enjoys sharing his knowledge of the sport.

What folks say about fishing with Taite

Tait was perfect. Great attitude, very helpful. Gave great instruction to help us become better fishermen.

Tate is the Jedi Master of the creek.


I have fished on the Big Lost below the dam many times but it has always been at the campground or the main street bridge. It was a real treat to fish on a private stretch of waters that I had not been to before.


It was a wonderful day - my daughter talked about the experience the entire time she was here


Taite was absolutely outstanding, both as a knowledgeable guide, and a very nice patient gentleman.
