"I have over 40 years experience in fly-fishing from Maine to the Florida Keys to Mexico to The Pacific Northwest and Canada. I have pursued trout in the world famous waters of The AuSauble, Deschutes, Umpqua,Yellowstone, Colorado, Metolius and many others. I have chosen to live near and fish the streams of S.E. Minnesota for over fifteen years and can show the beginner or expert where and how to catch trout on a fly. Expertise, knowledge of the area, dedication to the environment and people, allow me to share an experience that will not only last a lifetime in your memory, but also endure in your increased ability to stalk and catch wild trout.

Eventually, all things merge into one and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. I am haunted by waters." Norman Maclean-A River Runs Through It

It's only my second year of fly fishing and my wife purchased a guided trip with Mel for my birthday. After calling many guides in southern MN, she was taken by Mel's exciting personality and excitement in teaching a beginner a few of the tricks. I can honestly say she picked wisely. Aside from Mel's teaching tips on how to fish correctly, rigging my rod, setting the hook, and the science behind trout feeding activity, Mel was a pleasure to fish with - I think he may have been more excited than I was when ever I hooked one. I was fortunate enough to catch multiple brown and brook trout and to have beautiful weather and wonderful scenery to boot. At the end of the day I left with a new friend. Mel, I had a great time and did not want to leave for home as evidenced by the extra 3 hour stay on the stream - I hope we can fish together again soon.

Thanks for the great day in Minnesota nature,

Scott S. Chaska Mn.
