After 18 years as a professional fly fishing guide, I have the opportunity to hang up the guide hat and pursue a new dream. I was recently hired as the Nation Sales Manager for G.Loomis Fly Fishing. While my new position is a huge departure from running jet boats up rock infested rapids, sleeping in a tent for months at a time and chasing anadromous fish with two-handed rods, I am excited to aim my fierce passion for the sport at new career goals.
I was recently invited to join Winston Rod Company's prestigious Advisory Team. Thus far, the "Green Team" consists of legendary saltwater guide Bruce Chard, scandi casting guru Andre Scholz and the first lady of fly fishing, Joan Wulff.
I'm headed back east to The Northern Angler Fly Shop in Traverse City, Mi. this weekend to give a Spey Clinic. Although my classes are full, stop by the Fly Fishing Film Tour on Friday night or enter the second annual carp tournament on Saturday if you're in the area. For more information, check out the Northern Angler Facebook page.
Welcome to the new Larimer Outfitters website and blog. Outside of showcasing my guided fly fishing trips, Spey instruction and hosted travel, you’ll find tons of useful fly fishing tips on my new blog.
If you truly want to take your Spey casting ability to a higher level, consider private lessons with Tom Larimer. Tom's unique style of instruction coupled with a huge passion for helping people become better Spey casters has made him one of the most revered Spey casting instructors in the country.
Todd Harris, partner in Larimer Outfitters, is a long time steelhead & trout addict. More importantly, he is passionate about sharing his vast experience in Spey fishing for steelhead, salmon and trout with the anglers he guides on the Deschutes and beyond.
Larimer Outfitters hosts world-class fly fishing adventures to some of the finest destinations. Although I do not guide on these trips (I do give casting instruction and fishing tips), I’m there to ensure your trip goes smoothly from beginning to end. Think of me as your personal fishing & travel coach.
