Kameron B. Walser

has literally spent his entire life fishing with his father and the other guides he has lived around. From the age of three when he baited his own hook at a small trout pond in Northern California, he has been hooked. Kam has spent more time on the water in his 19 years than most anglers spend in a lifetime and has a focus on fishing rarely seen in adults. His enthusiasm for every cast thrown is infectious to be around, not only keeping up with some of the very best fisherman in the business, he frequently out fishes all of them

Kameron is currently attending Southern Oregon University, where he is studying outdoor leadership. He intends to further his education in outdoor education and leadership to provide even more learning opportunities/experiences beyond the realm of fly fishing.

Dave Teitzel

has spent the majority of his life in the pursuit of a professional fly fishing career. That pursuit has taken him to Yellowstone, Bristol Bay Alaska and he has been a Rogue River guide for the past 20 plus years. His knowledge of our area rivers is second to no one with an obscene number of days spent fishing for the salmon and steelhead, which inhabit those waters. He is one of the most inventive steelhead fly tiers out there and always has something special coming out of his fly box to get the fish to open up, when they go into "tight lip" mode.

  Dave's good nature and natural ability to put his clients at ease and into big fish, has made him one of the most sought after Rogue River guides ever. He is a steelhead fly fishing mentor to many serious guides and anglers in the Rogue Valley and we are very happy to have him as part of the team!

In 2014 he found his home here in the Rogue Valley and hasn’t looked back.

Comfortable chasing Salmon and Steelhead with any gear neccesary, John has become a very popular guide here in the Rogue Valley who spends nearly 200 days a year on the water.
