Dave Barber Jackson Hole fly fishing guide

Dave has been fishing the greater Yellowstone area rivers and streams since 1987. A professional guide for over 35 years, Dave will ensure an unforgettable experience on our Wyoming rivers.


Dave is an experienced speaker and fly fishing clinician. He has been featured in magazines and books such as American Angler, Wild Steelhead and Salmon, Fish and Fly, Salmon River Journal, and Steelhead Dreams to name a few. He has conducted casting clinics with world renowned fishermen Dec Hogan and Lani Waller.


A family man himself, Dave is happy to accommodate families with children. Along with a traditional 17 foot beautifully crafted Boulder Boat Works drift boat, he also operates a 20 foot drift boat which seats up to 6 people (including guide). Dave's easy going approach with children can make fly or spin fishing not only an awesome educational experience, but a starting point for new anglers and a new love!


Even the most experienced fly fishing guests regularly comment on how much they've learned about presentation, reading water, and understanding the homes of fish. Take advantage of the wealth of information available to you while fishing with us!


Having owned a thriving fly fishing lodge and outfitting service for many years, we now exclusively offer individual float trips with a focus on personal attention. Dave is very involved with each guest, and although he likes to do most trips himself to maintain a high standard of personal interaction, we do have a few trusted guides we use for larger parties.

What does our family do when we have time to get away....you guessed it!   Alaska 2017
