20 Years of Experience
I’m Derek Hutton, founder of Hutton Fly. Twenty years ago, I made the decision to turn my passion for fly fishing into a unique career. Many anglers fish locally and simply dream of going to faraway lands to catch prized fish. I wanted to make that dream a reality, and began to lay the groundwork for organizing and hosting trips to the most exclusive destinations worldwide. I traveled the globe, met with experienced local outfitters, fished the waters, vetted lodging and food, and perfected every last detail to provide my clients with an unparalleled travel experience.
Our Fishing Destinations
We manage Bair's Lodge and work with other Nervous Waters lodges to give our clients the fly fishing experience of a lifetime.
When you book at Bair's, we are able to work with you directly to curate a trip that fulfills all your fly fishing expectations.
Who We Are
For me, fly fishing grew from an obsession to a full time profession. I have pursued most aspects of the sport from being a full time guide, to organizing international trips to far flung expeditions to managing a world class lodge and fishing operation. Having a fly rod in my hand, just makes me happy.
My passion for the outdoors and travel led to a love of fly-fishing. Whether it is in the mountain streams of Idaho or Wyoming, the rivers of Patagonia or on the flats of The Bahamas, I love chasing fish in their native habitat. While I love the catch, the friendships made and cultures experienced on the journey give me great joy.
