About Us

                         Serving You Since 1985 
 Greetings and Welcome. In 1985 when I opened my fly shop and guide service here on the Deschutes River, my goal was, and still is, to provide the best products, guided trips, classes, and customer service. To accurately inform and report on river and fishing conditions. We do this every day!
   
We enjoy hosting special events throughout each season to help increase your knowledge and skill level of this wonderful sport.  

Examples of events would be; product demo days, stream side entomology classes, clinics, casting lessons, and more. 

Go to our “EVENTS CALENDAR” to see what's happening each month of this season. Plan a day with us and enjoy some really fun learning experiences. 
We Thank you for your support over the years, and we look forward to serving you in the years to come.

Have a fantastic fishing season,
and thanks again,

          John  Smeraglio

Guide: Nate Morris


Nate has been guiding for John Smeraglio and Deschutes Canyon Fly Shop since the summer of 2008. Nate's love for fly fishing and teaching the sport to others is infectious. He is a tireless worker who will put everything he has into your day of fishing, and he is one of those rare fish junkies who gets just as much of a kick out of watching someone else land a fish as he would catching a fish himself. College educated, outgoing, and fun, Nate is not only committed to your success, but also to your improvement and education as a fly fisher. When not guiding, Nate is either fishing, tying flies, taking pictures, or trying to motivate himself to write the next Great American Novel.
