Brian Wise is the Head Guide at River of Life Farm
. His mainstay are the wild rainbow trout and large predatory brown trout of the North Fork of the White river but he is a self-proclaimed Smallmouth junky and lo
ves seasonal striper fishing as well. Priding himself on his teaching abilities and flat-out big fish catching karma Brian has quickly made his way among the top guides in the Mid-West. He has guided for over a decade and has been featured in print such as Southern Living Magazine, Outdoor Life, Fly Fisherman, Field and Stream, Rural Missouri Magazine, on television shows such as NBC’s Today Show, Outdoor Channel’s Ultimate Outdoors, several, several appearances on Outdoor Channel Outfitters and several promo videos.
He was a 2007 qualifier for the coveted Best of the West distance casting competition and won the Bennett Springs distance casting competition with a whopping cast of 106′. When Brian isn’t guiding he is fishing with his 6 and 8 year old boys and enjoys making fly fishing and tying videos, many of which you can see right here on Ozark Anglers
. He also runs a blog on his fishing and guiding adventures called “Fly Fishing the Ozarks
