 Victor Vaughan

Owner and Guide Victor Vaughan grew up fishing in the hills of Asheville, North Carolina and the greater Atlanta area. After the passing of his brother in 1990, Victor went on excursions of his own to find himself amongst the calming company of the lakes and streams that make up the N Georgia Mountains. After high school, he moved across the country to Yellowstone National Park. He went on to find the art of fly fishing, learning on world class rivers such as The Gibbon,The Madison, The Gallatin,Snake, and The Yellowstone. He spent the after hours talking with the guides of the local fly shops,exchanging information on where to land the next big trophy brown. In later years,he returned to fish the fall and winter season. Victor moved back to Sedona at the end of 2007 with his wife Elizabeth. Also with 20 years of fly fishing experience, Victor is one of the best in the business.  He has explored all of northern Arizona’s waterways through their favorite pass times of fishing and camping.

Silver Creek Rainbow


Paul Asbell Paul is a native born Arizonian since 1959.  He has been blessed to have fished many of Arizona’s creeks and lakes and learned to fly fish some 14 years ago on his home waters of Oak Creek.  Fly fishing is his passion, as it has taught him a lot of patience, not only with just catching fish, but with life in general.  “There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a fish rise to the surface and taking your fly”.  Paul gained most of his experience on Oak Creek, Verde River, West Clear Creek, Beaver Creek, to name a few.  Along the way, Paul decided to get into building custom fly rods and created “Oak Creek Fly Rod Customs”.  Then one day, building custom rods on a more regular basis and now builds rods for a fly fishing business in Oregon. Gaining much knowledge in the years from fishing Oak Creek primarily, as it is a beautiful spring creek filled with many opportunities to catch a beautiful native brown trout that resides there.  Paul found himself teaching friends how to fly fish, so he followed his dream of becoming a fishing guide.  Paul has taught many folks the art of fly fishing on the local waters in Sedona and it is a joyful moment when you watch someone hook a fish on a fly rod, whether you’re a new beginner or seasoned angler.  Guide License #SP598179

.Anthony Jenca

Anthony was born in Petaluma, California; but he was raised in Arizona and has been fishing Arizona’s back country for over 15 years. He picked up a fly rod in 2015 and never looked back. Fly fishing has become a passion of his and so has conservation of the streams and the fish that reside in them. He practices and enjoys teaching catch and release as well as proper fish handling.

At home, he’ll do hours of research to find remote and fishable water for his next adventure. “We have one of the most diverse states in the country, Trout fishing here should be something everyone experiences at least once in their lifetime”.  Guide License SP593008
