All men are equal before fish
The fish doesn't care about the brand of your gear or the price you paid for the technology that goes into it.
But rather, it’s about the time you spend on the water studying the habitat, diet and behavior of this worthy opponent before presenting that right fly, with the right movement at the right moment, that perhaps the fish will return that respect with moments of exhilaration as the take, the fight, the catch and the release ensues.
At GuideStream, we believe that if we Respect the sport that we love and those that we pursue to share this love with, that respect will be reciprocated with trust, support and fellowship. Respect for the fish, respect for nature, respect for anglers who share this same respect.
GuideStream's vision is to develop tackle that offers true value for fly fishing lovers of all levels. Because we are fly anglers too and have been through phases where we paid through the nose for tackle and technology that otherwise made little difference in how we caught the same fish. Whether you are new to fly fishing or have been “waving the wand” for a while, GuideStream will offer you the affordability to enter the sport, the quality to enjoy it, and the reliability to grow in it for years.
We strive to strike a balance between Quality, Reliability and Affordability by incorporating proven technology, materials and features that will enhance your fly fishing experience. Guidestream’s tackle won't cost you an arm and a leg, so you can preserve them for fishing.
