Welcome to Wildsmallie.com, my official website.

If you are looking to get in on the best, most exciting fishing the state has to offer, look no farther. While I specialize in chasing down smallmouth bass and muskies on the Upper Mississippi, I have other trips available as well. Wade fishing trips on local trout streams are a great option, and I am now featuring fall sturgeon trips as well. I can also put you on some great largemouth, pike and muskie on metro area lakes, on either fly or spinning/casting tackle. No matter what time of year it is, I have a fishing adventure for you.  I even have “Guaranteed Fish” outings available, contact me for more info–these types of outings are great for kids or other beginner anglers.

I have spent my entire life working in the sport fishing business, from working in tackle stores to working as a fishing guide in Alaska. I wrote the best selling book “Fly Fishing for Beginners” a few years ago, and I have also made several instructional DVDs (watch ). I am a licensed Coast Guard Captain with many years of experiencing operating boats on waters near and far.

I am proud to be a part of Umpqua Feather Merchant’s Signature Fly Tyer Program

Whether you need a fishing guide, a speaker for your fishing club, or private fly casting classes, feel free to contact me anytime
