Welcome to Bigfly Guide Service

My name is Jim Landis, and I’ll be your guide on California State waters.                           Operating out of Truckee CA. and specializing in fishing the Truckee River.

I also range about on the Eastern side of the Sierra Nevada, primarily, East walker, Owens river. I also enjoy showing folks the western side of the range as well.
Covering the Yuba, American, and lower Sacramento rivers.
I can provide instruction in a variety of fly fishing styles.
Dry fly, Nymphing, and Streamer fishing, are all applied to conditions we encounter.
At times, we cover several styles in one day.

I also offer Switch rod instruction, both skagit and indicator style.
The switch rod is a great tool for covering more water with less effort, as well as handling bigger water/fish.
Because of challenging angling conditions on the Truckee, it is a great river to hone your game.

My goal is to provide an enjoyable angling experience, whether beginner, or seasoned veteran. Each trip is different, shaped by individual needs.
