I catch huge crappie, bass, bluegills, and even catfish on fly rods in the Flint Hills of Kansas, which have some of the premier fly fishing in the country. Come appreciate the gorgeous fish and beautiful scenery.

Give me a call (mobile: 620-794-324 seven  OR  home: 620-343-387 zero) or email to set up your trip. I offer full- or half-day rates, and I’ll provide all equipment. I also offer lessons. Best of all, satisfaction is guaranteed!

Some of what others are saying:

…I was really looking forward to the Wednesday outing with Bill. And, sure enough, we drove to one of his favorite deep aqua-blue crappie, bluegill, and bass honey holes nestled deep in the Flint Hills of Chase County. – Scott Irwin, The Emporia Gazette

Within five minutes of taking to the water, Hartman had his first fish of the day, a nice bass. A few casts later, he added a big bluegill. By the time he quit fishing a few hours later, the fish bag on the side of his tube was bulging with bluegill, green sunfish, bass, and crappie. His two guests did just as well – Michael Pearce, The Wichita Eagle

After Hartman and I caught and released about 30 bluegills, we were off to another pond for a less traditional type of fishing, pursuing giant channel catfish with small flies. – Brent Frazee, The Kansas City Star
