Trout Buddy -- Not Your Traditional Guide Service!
We cater to vacationers and day visitors to the Driftless Region of Western Wisconsin. Trout Buddy is not your traditional fishing guide service as our primary vision is to provide a relaxed, friendly and non-intimidating fly fishing experience based only on your desires, physical ability and fishing background.
We concentrate our "experiences" on the many natural reproduction Driftless region trout steams of southern LaCrosse and Vernon Country's feeding the Bad Ax River and Coon Creek as well as streams in Monroe and Vernon County's feeding the Kickapoo River system.
For those that have never tried fly fishing or for NOVICE that wants to learn a few new skills we offer “experiences” that provide the patience and either traditional western or TENKARA USA equipment you will need. We help with some “how to” fly fishing basics including understanding equipment, the principles of casting, select an easy access stream to learn on, offer some helpful suggestions as the day progresses and provide the same level of service and benefits that our more experienced clients have come to expect. PLUS - we have all the equipment necessary to enjoy a day in the Driftless - now including waders.
For the more SKILLED Driftless angler we offer "experiences" that include our extensive local knowledge, clean reliable transportation, a nice tailgate or stream side lunch, deliver you to the hard to find "honey holes" of the Driftless area, give some assistance with fly selection and help landing the fish. Unlike traditional guide services our first goal is to offer the friendship of fellow angler and we promise to not be critical, try to coach or provide an unwanted "lesson".
In 2014 we are expanding our use of TENKARA. Tenkara is the generations old Japanese method of fly-fishing. It is very well suited for the smaller stream settings found in the Driftless and for anyone looking for a simple, easy to learn and fun way to fly-fish. It is an ideal starting point for beginners as well as those that enjoy using micro-light equipment.
We are fully licensed and insured in Wisconsin. Please give us a call to discuss and schedule your Trout Buddy Experience at 608-792-2521 - MasterCard or VISA are accepted.
ANNOUNCING TUesday's! For the rest of the 2014 season we will be donating 20% of every guide fee collected on TUesday'sto the Coulee Region Chapter of Trout Unlimited. It's our small way of repaying the organization for their super efforts in the area's of stream improvement and promoting the sport here in the Driftless Region!
