Instinctive Fly Fishing
Taylor Streit has been guiding fly fishers for over 40 years. After watching thousands of clients catch trout over the years he knows what works and what doesn't work. Join us to learn Taylor's secrets to hooking up and landing more trout.
He’s guided fly fisherman for 40 years--primarily in New Mexico but in the Bahamas and Argentina as well. Guiding is what has paid the bills “there’s been no trust fund or endorsements; if the clients don’t catch we don’t eat.”
In 2001 he was unanimously inducted into the Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame as a legendary guide. He’s authored four books: Fly Fishing New Mexico, Man vs Fish—The Fly Fisherman’s Eternal Struggle and Instinctive Fly Fishing I and II.
He holds fly fishing schools annually and writes and photographs for various magazines and newspapers. He has developed a number of fly patterns—including the mighty Poundmiester. He lives in Taos, New Mexico near his favorite river-- the wild Rio Grande. He works with his son Nick in Taos Fly Shop and runs the guiding side of the business.
