Wyoming Cutt-Slam: Magificent scenery, solitude, great hatches, and no crowds are what attract anglers to Wyoming. The other attraction that goes unmentioned, but which has become quite popular with North Fork Anglers guided trip friends is the Cutt-Slam. What is the Cutt-Slam? Simply, the Cutt-Slam is a program designed to encourage anglers to learn more about Wyoming's cutthroat sub-species and develop more appreciation and support of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department's cutthroat management program.
Tim Wade, owner and outfitter, has been guiding, instructing and assisting fly fishers in the Yellowstone and Cody, Wyoming region for more than 30 years. Tim and his staff are also very knowledgeable about the rest of the trout waters in Wyoming, whether it might be the Snake River in the Grand Tetons, the North Platte, the Green River, Jackson Hole, or any of the Yellowstone or Cody area waters.
Tim has taught and written extensively about fly fishing, fly tying, fly casting and entomology, sharing his knowledge of trout behavior on hundreds of guided trips during that time.
I've fished with the gang at North Fork for more than 12 years in a row. Each and every trip is a trip of a lifetime. We have waded, floated, hiked and always had fun. Every guide is a great teacher and sportsman. As a customer, North Fork is very accommodating to our requests and scheduling. The entire staff treats me as if I lived in Cody even though I can only come yearly. I would recommend North Fork to anyone of any skill level because you will be a better fly fisher than you could imagine after a trip with them-guaranteed. Really fun!!!!!!!! Nick Cress
Top notch all the way.. so educational and the friendship is priceless. My casting skills has improved, reading of the waters , and handling of the fish properly are just a few perks you get fishing with this fine group of guides
I have fished with a tim so many times in the Cody region to count and rarely have stepped into the same waters. Each time a superb experience and so educational as I have been able to improve in my casting skills, reading the waters, handling the fish properly and all and besides that how can you argue an office like his? Big time kudos to tim and his staff and looking forward to another adventure together...
As a writer, author, field editor and publisher, I have had the good fortune to fly fish all of the country and with some of the best in the industry. To say that Tim and NFA are best-in-class would be an understatement. I am not sure if anyone knows their local water, area history and geography, or flora and fauna as well as Tim does. As for Cody, unless you have an issue with free-flowing rivers teeming with wild trout, native fish, unmatched wildlife and breathtaking scenery, there is not much not to like about it, I consider Cody one of the most overlooked trout destinations in the nation. Wild trout in the wild west!
Tim is a guide's guide in one of the most beautiful places in the US. His guide staff are all excellent as well. They all are a wealth of information when it comes to trout fishing in the West. Tim has a fully stocked fly shop with all the flies and gear you will ever need. With all the fishing water in the area to choose from, they will always find the perfect stretch of water to fish, no matter the weather conditions, whether you are fishing nymphs or drys.
