Capt. David Stelling:
Float/Wade Guide – Owner/Operator of High Country Guide Service
“Davo Trutta” is as fishy as they come. If it swims, he’ll find a fly for you to catch it. More importantly, he’s a dedicated father, steward, and teacher. Everyone else following on this page has him to thank for the opportunity to guide in this beautiful region of Appalachia and beyond. He fights for the health of our streams, trains and fosters some of the best guides in the High Country, and that all comes together in his boat. He will challenge anglers of any skill level to be better not only in fly fishing, but in the enjoyment and advocacy of our rivers.
David is head guide on our week-long Alaska trips, floating down the wild and beautiful Kanektok River. He is a licensed OUPV Charter boat captain in SE Alaska and has been guiding there for over a decade and a half. If you catch him in the shop or have him as a guide, it won’t take much to get him to start talking about the many reasons why this trip can change your life.
