Scott Thorpe Fly Fishing is a small, personalized fly fishing guide
service specializing in providing a unique outdoor experience, with each trip tailored to individual needs. My guiding is a direct reflection of my own personal angling journey and focuses equally on the fish and their
environment. My passion is fly fishing for steelhead in the
tributary streams of Lake Superior including the Brule River and fly fishing for brown trout and
brook trout in the spring creeks of the driftless area of southeastern Minnesota and
One of the reasons my angling journey has focused on
steelhead and trout is that I love the places that trout live, from the
rushing cascades of the spate rivers of Minnesota's north shore of Lake Superior to the
gentle meanderings of watercress rimmed spring creeks of the driftless
region. Each destination will be one of the most beautiful places in the
Midwest, and the trout are just an extra bonus. After all,
there is more to fishing than catching fish.
Each day of fly fishing will offer both casting and tactical
instruction, depending upon the needs of the individual. I very much enjoy
working with less experienced anglers, and require nothing more than a
desire to learn and share.
For the expert angler, very challenging
fish are easily arranged and hopefully with our combined knowledge, we can
sort them out. Advanced individual casting instruction is available from
my network of friends.
