Taylor has been guiding for a long time is an understatement. Taylor started his career at The Fly Fisher’s Place in Sisters, OR at the tender age of 14 and was mentored by owner Jeff Perin. Back then, Taylor would meet clients at the shop to pick up last minute needs such as: flies, tippet, indicators etc. From there, the customer would taxi the fisherman and guide to the Crooked or Deschutes Rivers for a day of guided fly fishing! Taylor is a big kid now and runs a full-service guiding operation that specializes in single day to multi-day Trout and Steelhead trips on the Deschutes and Grande Ronde Rivers. As well, Taylor Made Outfitters offers Late Winter/ Early Spring Lake Billy Chinook Bull Trout trips along with hosted trips to the Bahamas and Mexico. Taylor’s famous quote: “I like to think of these as eating trips with a little fly-fishing mixed in”. Camp is comfortable, the food being prepared riverside from scratch is excellent. Taylor Geraths has been a long-time supporter of Hatch Outdoors products and is a welcome addition to the Hatch Pro Staff.
