Testimonials

“The team at the Reef Fly Shop is simply the best we have ever come across. Their guides are helpful, professional, and all possess an intimate knowledge of their waters. The shop itself is equipped with everything you need and a stay in their cottages is a first class experience. Combine all of that with the world-class trout fishery at their doorstep and you end up with an experience that is in a word — special! I look forward to the next “silly” day of fishing with their team.”

North Platte fly fishing and the Reef FlyShop…this is truly a Gem in the wilderness!, the North Platte is worth out a doubt, the finest Rainbow Trout fly fishing that I’ve ever experienced!! Bar none. Lots of big fish,SuperGuides….who are my friends,a uncrowded river with private access. The Shop is a warm, friendly place to change your boots or hangout and the cabins are extremely comfortable and convienent. I like everything about this place and already have my reservation for next year in the book.

I have been fortunate to fly-fish the world for the last 35 years and I’ve fished with some of the world’s most renowned fly-fishing guides. The guides, owners, staff at The Reef Fly Shop are without question, top to bottom the best guide crew I have ever had the pleasure of staying/fishing with! They got it figured out, it’s that simple!

Just wanted to drop a quick note and tell you how impressed I am with your cottages, staff and fly shop. The cottages are always clean, roomy, well stocked and the nicest in the area by a long shot. We are really impressed by the honesty and knowledge of the staff. We know that not only will we get an accurate fishing report, but when we call about wind, river conditions, etc. we always get honest feedback and never have surprises when we get there. The shop is always stocked with great patterns, any needed supplies and is perfectly located at the put in. Most of all though, we have enjoyed your guides on the water. As you know we have our own boat and experience on the water, but love to float with the guides from the Reef. With other outfitters we get a cold sandwich and can of soda. Your guides have provided food like hot grilled lunch, homemade soups, and fried chicken. A few weeks ago we were about halfway down the river and our guide called the shop and requested to move the shuttle 4 miles further down the river so we could have a longer day. Last fall I purchased some streamers, left them on desk at the shop and didn’t realize it until we were on the water. Two miles downstream, one of your staff was on the bank waiting to deliver us the flies. I have never received service like this on any river. Thanks for taking such great care of all your clients by providing the best staff and services on the Reef!
