Tim Landwehr, Tight Lines Fly Fishing Co.

De Pere, WI

Tim Landwehr is the owner of Tight Lines Fly Fishing Co. in De Pere, Wisconsin. Tim has been a professional fly fishing guide for the majority of his adult life. He has guided some of the famous rivers of the West, but his warm water roots brought him back to his home state to open a fly shop and guide service. Tim and his crew of guides float the rivers of Northeast Wisconsin in western-style drift boats.

Tight Lines Fly Fishing Co. was one of the first shops in the Midwest to incorporate this style of fishing on our Smallouth Rivers. Tim also has developed a smallmouth-specific website, which showcases some of Tight Lines’ favorite smallmouth gear and flies. Tim employs six full time River Smallmouth guides and still puts in countless days on the water himself. He has been featured in ESPN Outdoors, OLN, Fly Fisherman Magazine, Catch Magazine, Fly Fishing Film Tour, Badger Sportsman, Eastern Fly Fishing, Sporting Classics and has hosted the Midwest Sportsman television program. He and his guides were featured in last fall’s Guides and Destinations edition of Gray’s Sporting Journal.

“We needed a boat that could hold in postion easily in skinny water, while customers make casts to good holding areas. We also need a boat with a lot of room for coolers and gear. The new Hyde Lo Pro XL does it all! This is by far the finest boat I have ever had the privelge to guide out of. This year LaMoyne sent me the new Power Drifter 18” with the Evinrude E-Tec 60hp jet. All I can say is WOW. This has opened up new water that has not been touched by fly anglers. Lots of room and up on plane in seconds. Job well done Hyde.”Tim Landwehr
