LTS USA GUIDES
Fish On! Sports and LTS Flyfishing are extremely excited to announce that Brian Ramsey has joined our LTS USA Pro Staff, a team of professional guides and top casters who have the knowledge and skill to make your fishing experience even better with the best LTS fly fishing tackle, casting techniques and on stream experience!
Brian started fly fishing at age 13 and hasn't stopped ever since, which has lead to a very interesting career in the U.S. fly fishing industry.
Starting out of high school as a fly fishing guide in northern Minnesota for The-In-Fisherman's Camp Fish for youth in the Midwest, this spring boarded his interest in the fly fishing industry to all corners of North America. His inquisitive mind, athleticism and determination to get things right has lead to experiences with some of the best minds in the fresh and saltwater arenas.
Stemming from a life long passion to be outside, pursuing fish in incredible surrounds, he brings this passion to the angling public in various forms of casting clinics and Power Point angling presentations to clubs whenever time from the water and family affords.
Early on Brian has had the honor of learning from what he calls, the 'Fantastic Five' categories of the U.S. fly fishing industry; The Saltwater world from Jeffery Cardenas in Key West, Davy Wotton on the trout, Rod design with Tom Morgan, casting with Steve Rajeff and has worked for all the big fly shops in the Northern rockies as a guide/fly shop junkie. Having to pay his dues over the years working graveyards at various un-glamorous jobs in the off-season just so he could trout fish some 200 days a year in the 'Golden Ring' region of the northern Rockies, puts him in a piscatorial pursuit class all by himself. Brian has done this for decades and has appeared in photo essays of him in magazines like Gray's Sporting Journal.
If you get a chance to meet this approachable, gentle giant Swede from Minnesota be prepared to answer some questions, have a laugh or two and learn something new as he believes everyone has something to offer whether you're a Czech nymphing, Tarpon Cup, Spey casting champion or just a beginner.
He currently divides his time with family on an organic farm in southwest Wisconsin's Driftless trout region and still guides Montana's Paradise Valley spring creeks for the PMD hatch. His teenage daughter calls him a fly casting 'Quiet Madman.'

Nate Bailey is the owner and operator of On The Fly Guide Service, based in Southern Oregon. He is a published Outdoor Writer, Photographer, and cut his fly fishing teeth on the famed Williamson River near his home town of Chiloquin, OR. Nate was surrounded by Southern Oregon’s Fly Fishing Greats, Polly Rosebrough , and Paul Pursell. After a long summers mowing Mr.Pursell’s lawn, chasing his beagles all over town, and helping sort book orders, Nate finally earned his first fly rod at the age of thirteen.
Through the years Nate took these early skills to waters from Virginia to Alaska, catching everything from Redfish to King Salmon on the fly rod. Southern Oregon never got out of his blood. He recognized the usefulness of the Spey Cast in the late nineties, and applied it to all of his fishing—a out of the box approach in its time.
Nate applies these methods on the Famed Rogue, Williamson, Wood, and other Southern Oregon Rivers that he has been fly fishing for over 30 years. When not on the river you can find Nate sharing with others as Administrator on Big Stick Fly Fishing Forum, or presenting some of his “out of the box,” methods to clubs throughout the Northwest. If you would like to learn more about Nate, check out his website here www.southernoregonflyfishing.com or you can follow his blog at www.southernoregonflyfishing.blogspot.com
A warm welcome to Joe Dilschneider, owner and operator of the Trout Stalkers in Ennis, to the LTS USA Guide Program. We are absolutely thrilled that you selected LTS rods for use with your guide service on the Madison River, Montana!
Born and raised near the Missouri River… In Missouri, Joe started out fishing with bait and gear for Bass and Bluegill at an early age. By 16 he had discovered fly fishing and trout and was rapidly evolving as an angler. The University of Colorado at Boulder helped bring him to the mountains and closer to the fishes and the lifestyle he had come to love. Upon graduating in 1990 with a degree in Environmental Conservation, he promptly moved to Breckenridge where he began his career as a professional guide.
Today Joe brings more than 20 years of both freshwater and saltwater angling and guiding experience to his fly shop and outfitting business, Montana Trout Stalkers, located in Ennis, Montana on the Madison River.
In addition to running his shop, Joe still spends many days on the water each year fishing and guiding. His love of the game is as strong now as it has ever been!
