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.
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.
If you are testing the waters of the fly fishing world and want to see what it offers, whether that be understanding the gear, fly selection or reading water, contact me I am here to help.
Guide and Instructor
I was born on the East Coast into a fly fishing family. My dad, my granddad, and most of my uncles were all fly fisherman and bird hunters. I started tying flies when I was in was very young. I was lucky that I had a little creek near my house and I was catching bluegills and small trout as a young kid.
Spending so much time on Cape Cod, and moving there when I was 17, allowed me to fish salt water. New Year’s Day 1970 I moved to New Mexico to finish my education. I got to fish the San Juan in May of 1970 when it was still filling. There were no people there then and the fishing was crazy good.
I will fish for anything. I’ve been very lucky and I’ve traveled to South America to fish for trout and jungle species. I love fishing for warm water species like smallmouth bass, carp, Crappie, bluegills. I just like it all.
I have fished for bonefish and saltwater species in Mexico, the Bahamas, Christmas Island, Cape Cod and Florida. Fishing in Slovenia for Trout is one of the best trips I’ve ever made. What I like about Fly fishing is that if you’re open minded you can continue to learn your whole life. The book on how to fly fish is still being written.

My love for outdoor adventure sparked my obsession with angling of all types. My favorite fishing use to be with my bait casting rod for warm water species and bow fishing for invasive fish. That changed the day I held a fly rod. Now, my ultimate goal is to share my passion with others and help them discover what this amazing sport has to offer !
My guiding is instruction based for men, women, & children where I focus on stream entomology, water reading, casting, and catch & release techniques in a way that will bring confidence to the novice while still challenging the experienced angler. As a female fishing guide in a primarily male dominate industry, i facilitate a non-intimidating environment that beginning anglers, females, and youth fishermen gravitate to and benefit from.
Some of my best attributes as a guide are my patience, and my ability to instruct, along with possessing a certain “fishy” sense that puts my clients onto fish. I am a conscience and courteous guide, who is attentive to detail, safety oriented and hardworking. You can rest assured that I will do everything in my power to make sure that you have a memorable and successful experience!
