Thanks for your interest in Rivers Wild Flies. We are in our 25th year of making flies. Kohn Smith founded Rivers Wild in the early 90's after coaching basketball at Indiana University and Utah State University. He grew up on the banks of the Logan River and spent many days fishing the great rivers of the west with his father Don and brother Gary. He developed a talent for tying flies and catching fish that led him to start a full time fly operation after his coaching career. Rivers Wild was born with the simple goal to make flies that catch fish. Today you can find us in Hyrum, UT, not too far from the Blacksmith Fork river. If we're not in the shop, we're probably up the canyon. Stop in and say hi or give us a call, we'd love to hear from you.
