Guide and Instructor
I have been fly fishing for 50+ years. Spending my adult life in the military offered me the opportunity to see the world, and frequently I was able to fish along the way. My diverse fishing background and continuous quest for adventure have given me a unique perspective on teaching others the art and skills associated with my favorite pastime.
Over the years I have fished nearly every type of water from arctic rivers, desert lakes, high mountain creeks, pelagic currents, wrecks and reefs, to ocean flats. Growing up in Boise, I had the privilege of learning the Boise River from an early age, often riding my bike to practice my fly casting and exploring new spots, after school.
I have been married for over 30 years to my best friend Nancy. We have a grown daughter who lives in Boise, who loves to fly fish as well. When not fishing, I can often be found chasing birds with my yellow lab, Brodie.
Owner, Head Guide, and Instructor
My name is Jose Karry and I am the head guide for Vice Outdoors. I have been fly fishing for nearly 8 years. In that time I have fished all over western United States and have extensive knowledge of the treasure valley and it’s fisheries. I am a teacher when I am not guiding so education is near and dear to my heart. As a teacher I bring an ability to make any time on the water educational and custom fit to each client. Whatever you want to learn we can find a way to do It.
I specialize in nymphing and streamers but am capable of teaching any other style. My goal for you is that when you finish a day fishing with Vice Outdoors you feel confident that you can catch fish on your own.
Guide and Instructor
As a Boise native, I have grown up recreating in and around Idaho, with fly fishing being my main passion. I spend much of my free time fishing locally on the Boise River tangling with Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, and Mountain Whitefish.
I'm passionate about education and helping people be successful at fly fishing - and my goal is not to catch as many fish as we can, but to help you develop the tools to be successful on any body of water. We'll focus on a variety of techniques, based on your comfort level and also what my many years of experience fishing the Boise River has taught me.
I look forward to working with you and together we’ll find success learning and fishing the local tailwater!
Owner, Guide, and Instructor
I have called the Boise area home for over 30 years and spent a good part of that time chasing fish with a fly all over the Southern Idaho, Eastern Oregon and Northern Nevada. Yet, I always seem to come back to the jewel that runs through the city of trees, a river that I love.
