About Brian Wise:
Brian Wise is a fly fishing guide in extreme Southern Missouri. His mainstays are the wild rainbow trout and large predatory brown trout of the North Fork of the White River, but he is also a self-proclaimed smallmouth junkie and loves the seasonal striper fishing as well. He's been the head guide at River of Life Farm for over a decade and has been featured in print such as Southern Living Magazine, Outdoor Life, Fly Fisherman, Field and Stream, Rural Missouri Magazine, on television shows such as NBC’s Today Show, Outdoor Channel’s Ultimate Outdoors, several appearances on Outdoor Channel Outfitters, and is a Field Producer for Chasing Waters on the Pursuit Channel. He was a 2007 qualifier for the coveted Best of the West distance casting competition and won the Bennett Springs distance casting competition with a whopping cast of 106 feet. When Brian isn’t guiding, he is fishing with his two sons. His fly tying and fly fishing videos are quickly making their way to the top of the list, and the Fly Fishing the Ozarks Youtube Channel is the fastest growing channel in the fly fishing genre.

Greetings , I reside in Tasmania one of the many residences of Mr brown , I fish NZ every year for a month with a friend from Montana we use a raft to get off the beaten track . Lots of WB /streamer fishing for the larger class bows and browns . Up until discovering your sculpin helmets I have been using tungsten cones with tungsten beads on 4-2-1 hooks . Do you make a sculpin helmet that is in between the large and small .?
If you do I will get my retailer to order some as we looked on line but failed to find any. Thank you for your time and have a great xmas and new year. .A H .
