My wife and I had a very nice day of fly fishing on the Basca River in the Transylvania territory of Romania. Guide George Minculete was very pleasant, fluent in English, and an expert teacher of fly fishing technique. he was especially effective in helping my wife Alba to learn the method of swinging wet flies for the grayling in the river. She caught a nice one! The next day, he took me to the Tarnava River in central Transylvania. This is an excellent tail-water fishery for wild and stocked brown trout and wild European grayling. There were good caddis and blue-winged olive hatches, and I caught lots of browns, including a couple of large ones, and one grayling, mostly on blue-wing olive flies. Lunches were wonderful authentic Romanian dishes made by George's mother. I highly recommend Jack Trout as an outfitter and George Minculete as a guide. My only advice is to go before Sept. 30 as after that date many, but not all, good streams close for the season.

Spent the day with Jack and his cool dog Trinity on the Klamath River chasing steelhead. Jack is very skilled and very patient as I’m a rookie fly fisher. Ended up catching about 10 fish with three being adult steelhead that were great fighters. From start to finish a great experience I’d definitely recommend. Thanks Jack!

Being guided by Jack Trout on the Upper Sacramento River has been on my bucket list for years. The trip did not disappoint. Jack is an excellent white water rafter and excellent fly fishing instructor. I have fly fished for over 25 years but learned techniques in the first 10 minutes with Jack that I didn’t know and continued to learn throughout the day. He is an interesting conversationalist with vast life experiences, but is always attentive to the anglers needs. He also provides a great lunch and has a cool canine companion. Overall one of the best days ever, and I highly recommend a guided trip with Jack Trout.

What a fantastic experience. From start to finish, my dad and I had the best day chasing steelhead with Jack. He showed us how to navigate the side float style fishing, which we were beginners at, with expertise, and we both landed beautiful adult steelhead. Plenty of laughs, good stories, and local natural history knowledge. I’m also a professional cycling guide and have worked with hundreds of guides in all corners of the industry. I’d recommend Jack Trout’s guiding service to anyone who wants an authentic and expertly guided day on the water.

Jack went above and beyond to get me in contact with a fly fishing guide in the Spanish Pyrenees. You don’t often see people take the extra steps

If you want to include fly fishing in your next trip (you should) give them a shout. It doesn’t have to be an ultra expensive high end ordeal.

Went with Jack Trout for my first time fly fishing and it was amazing! We floated the upper sac river which is beautiful! Jack is so knowledgeable and knows how to get you hooked up on beautiful fish both on dry and nymphs. I had very little experience fly fishing going in but he was very patient and understanding and got me on some beautiful trout. I can honestly say my day out with Jack was the best day of fishing I've ever had and he taught me alot! Already looking into my next trip with Jack Trout!

I contacted Jack to set up a last minute fly fishing trip in Puerto Varras, Chile. Communication was amazing, direct, efficient, and we worked out the details for a 1 day trip with a local guide. With Mattias on the oars, we hooked into some big Chilean ocean run brown trout. Amazing experience and Mattias is a genuine good guy who knows his river! Looking forward to fishing with Jack in Nor Cal in the near future.

Wonderful fly fishing trip to Puerto Varas with Jack organizing and Mattias as a guide for my husband and I. Jack went above and beyond to make sure that everything was well coordinated and gave us great suggestions for dining in the area as well. Mattias was an amazing guide and took the time to work with us as we had never fly fished from a boat before. Mattias worked hard and it paid off with us both catching large trout. Covid protocol in Chile was easy to work with.
