Prior to my trip to Napa, I had never been fishing in my life. And I know this sounds corny, but as a woman I was looking forward to pulling on a pair of waders and getting out into the river to cast a line.

The folks at Off the Hook really take the time to get to know me and where/how I like to fish. They take the time to find THE guide, not just any guide, that's right for me. I fly fish a lot, so it's important I share my day with someone who can show me something new or just be... More

We were a group of seven adults, ranging from 20 to 62. None of us had ever been fly fishing before. We had three guides who did a great job. The basic program was: 1) Learn how to cast; 2) put on waders and boots; 3) go to the river and fish. It was a great half-day experience that was... More

It had been about 15 years since I pulled out my Fly Rod. When I saw that Off the Hook was advertising Fly Fishing Instruction, I thought it would be a wonderful refresher for both my husband and I. Not only was it Fly Fishing Instruction, but the class was being hosted at the Wine Tasting Room "Uncorked." It is... More

Had such a great time on the water last week with guide Jordan. Spent 8 hours on Putah Creek learning an absolute ton about the sport! He was a very patient guide, and full of knowledge about the area. Had consistent action all day, and ended the trip with the biggest rainbow we saw all day. It was a beautiful... More

The mark of a great guide service is how much fun you have when the conditions suddenly go to crap or when the fish just aren't biting.

Can't say enough good stuff about him. In addition to the wonderful things others have said, I'd like to relate that, despite the 105 degree weather, he stood around in the sun and watched me flyfish for 7 hours, seemingly as excited and anxious as I was stay out as long as I did. Very friendly. Very knowledgeable. He really... More
