RMO Endorsed Pro Staff- please get to know us.
Rocky Mountain Outfitters considers its Pro Staff the "Best Anglers in the West" We are very fortunate to have some of the most sought after guides in the industry. They are professional, knowledgable, and very good at what they do. With that said, you can't find a group of guys that are more down to earth, love what they do, and love sharing their knowledge with others.
From Joe Loverige, owner of Rocky Mountain Outfitters "I believe to be successful you need to surround yourself with the best. RMO has been able to do this and is very fortunate that the guides of RMO feel a commitment to a company that respects them and their talents. It is very tempting for a guide to want to leave and start his own guide service, it has happened a half dozen times over the years and I've seen them come and go. I am fortunate that we've been able to enjoy this business and more importantly meet and work with some of the best guides and even better men I know, guys that have built Rocky Mountain Outfitters into one of the most elite and premiere guide services in the country. I know the staff of RMO are loyal, hard working, have high morals, and do all they can to respect their customer, their company, and most important this amazing country we enjoy. I invite you to come and get to know these amazing guides. For the past four seasons, RMO has been awarded a finalist for the Guide Service of the Year by ORVIS. In 2013 RMO was awarded "Guide Service of the Year in North America" That doesn't mean the best fishing, the prettiest country, or trophy fish, even though Fly Fishing in Utah offers all three. It means that our guides provide a service that has met or exceeded what our customers expected. We look forward to your visit and want to share what we love to do, Fly Fish in Utah."
Joe Loveridge- Rocky Mountain Outfitters
Ryan has been fishing the Provo River his entire life and guiding for Rocky Mountain Outfitters since 2000. Some might say he is addicted to fly fishing, one thing is certain he is very passionate about fly fishing. He grew up just a few miles from the Provo River and learned the secrets of the Provo River at a young age. He has become a very skilled fly tyer and has several patterns that are sold by Orvis. In his off time when he isn't guiding he teaches AP Untied States History at Pleasant Grove High School. There isn't a more likable guy or more curtious guy on the water. Year after year he has repeat customers that refuse to fish with anyone else. Ryan has made it in the spotlight a few times on such shows as American Fly Guide, HGTV- Dream House, Hooked on Utah, Fox Television, and was mentnion by Elizabeth Banks on Live with Kelly and Michael, watch it here. Has finished in the top 3 multiple times at the Orvis Guide Rendevous Fly Tying Competiton. Ryan is married to his Junior High Sweetheart Briti, and they have 2 children Camden and Clarie.
Here is what one of many satisfied customers had to say about their trip with Ryan
" Overall Rating: Great Time!!!, June 24, 2012 By: RobNJ from Bordentown Township, NJ, "This was an awesome way to spend an afternoon in the scenery of Utah. Ryan Newman was a great guide that put us on fish the entire time we had lines in the water. Even as first timers we caught our share because of Ryan's experience. I cant wait to come back!
Andrew was born and raised in Utah, only five minutes from the banks of the Provo River where he spent almost all his free time. He has been obsessed with the sport of fly fishing since the day he was old enough to pick up a fly rod. From the open oceans to the smallest mountain streams, any free time he gets will be spent on the water, escaping to explore some new rivers throughout the states of Utah, Idaho and Wyoming. He has a passion for guiding and enjoys sharing his knowledge and experience with others. He is passionate about the sport and loves watching people embrace the sport the way he has. Your day on the water with Andrew will be one you will not forget.
Overall Rating: What a Great Trip!!!, July 9, 2012 By: LKRadtke from Sandy, Ut. "Andrew was the best guide we have ever had. He was fantastic and made sure we got some great fish. Hope to fish with him again soon."
