Tom Adams

Tom Adams, a native of Oklahoma City, has had a passion for the outdoors since childhood summers spent playing in the creeks and streams of Colorado and New Mexico. An avid outdoorsman, he loves hiking, climbing, camping and his latest passion of fly fishing.

Tom has been a beginner and advanced fly fishing guide clinics in Oklahoma since 1988 and hosts a monthly fly tying clinic at Backwoods in Oklahoma City.

He has fished the Middle fork of the Salmon, Madison and Big Hole rivers of Wyoming, Montana and Idaho, as well as numerous rivers in Missouri and Arkansas.

Tom has all the patience in the world whether you are a beginner or more experienced fisherman. The only thing he likes better than hooking a big one himself, is watching a first-timer bring in a great catch.
