Paul grew up fly fishing the fabled limestone spring creeks of south central Pennsylvania. He moved to Bozeman, Montana for college and began his guiding career there. Paul has been fishing the Green River since 2001, and has been guiding the Green since June of 2005. Paul guides and fishes the green river yearlong (over 200 days), living in Dutch John mid-march through Thanksgiving. Paul is a very patient and well- rounded guide. He enjoys fishing a variety of methods, and is very good with beginners and experts alike. When he is not fishing the green river, he can be found off The East Cape of the Baja, Mexico fishing for rooster fish, sail fish, and marlin in some undisclosed location.

Texas native Brent Hodges started fly fishing at nine years old in Colorado with his grandpa, who introduced him to the sport.
At 19, Brent got his first guide gig across the country in Alaska, guiding for trout and salmon. He guided the King Salmon, Alagnak and Nushagak rivers in jet boats.
He later returned to Texas to guide for trout and bass, using a drift boat. After obtaining his USCG Captain’s License and purchasing a polling skiff, he began his journey for tarpon and redfish in the saltwater flats along the Texas coast.
In 2006 he started his own fly shop and Texas-based guide service out of Canyon Lake, located near the Guadalupe River, the southernmost trout stream in the country. ReelFly Fishing Adventures, an all-water guide service, caters to hundreds of clients each year from all over the world, from first-time flyfishermen and women to seasoned anglers.
In 2013 Brent headed north to guide the Provo river

I am happy to report to you that James Boehm now works for Old Moe Guide Service!
James has been a Green River fly fishing Guide since 2000 and because his dad Hank has been a Green River fly fishing Guide since the 1980's he spent nearly every Summer on the Green from a very young age. So you can say that James knows the Green better than most. James is well versed in all fly fishing technique's, Dry fly, Nymphs,and Streamers, his favorite technique is which ever one is working best at the time.
Hank has been fly fishing since the age of 10 and is going into his 27th year as a professional fly fishing guide. Anyone who has fished with the Hankster knows it is hard to find a better guide to show you great fly fishing experience. Look for Hank to be floating the Green or wading the Provo or Weber in search of a big dry-fly eating trout for his clients.
I started my fly fishing in Colorado's front range, my home state. At the age of 20 I had fished every stream and river in Colorado and felt it was time to branch out. I explored most of the major rocky mountain rivers and enjoyed all of them. In 2000 I decided to head to Utah's Green River for a week long fishing trip. It didn’t take more then a few hours to fall in love. I spent the next year figuring out how I could make the move up to Dutch John for the season. 17 years later and I am still here and still loving the river and the area. Now I spend my summers chasing trout on the Green, and my winters swinging flies for Steelhead and searching the flats for rolling Tarpon.
Spencer Black has lived in Utah for most of his life and grew up fly fishing small trout streams since his childhood. One stream ran behind his house, in fact.

After college he worked for the Oregon and Washington Departments of Fisheries, as well as an upscale lodge in Alaska.
From these experiences and training, he has become an expert at reading river strategy and trout and aquatic invertebrate habitat. He has been a guide on the Green River for two years, helping hundreds of clients learn how to fly fish using the technique that best suits them and will ensure them a successful day on the River.
