BioDusty Wissmath is a widely repected fly casting instructor who learned to fish in the West and now teaches his art in the East. In 1996 he founded the Dusty Wissmath Fly Fishing School & Guide Service in the mountains near Mercersburg, PA where it quickly earned a reputation as a professional, yet easy going fly fishing school. As well as directing his own school, he is an instructor at the Wulff School of Fly Fishing and served as the lead instructor at L.L. Bean's Fly Fishing School in Virginia.
Dusty grew up in Missouri, started fly fishing when he was eight years old, and spent his formative years highly distracted by the sport. He began guiding and teaching fly fishing in the early seventies while working on a degree in Wildlife Biology at the University of Wyoming. Living in Jackson after graduate school, he tied commercially for High Country Flies and guided the Snake, Green and New Fork Rivers and in Yellowstone National Park.
Dusty is one of the best, most personable instuctors on the Scott Pro Staff. His schools are scheduled April through October and he guides a host of trout and smallmouth bass waters in the Mid-Atlantic region, including the limestone spring creeks of the Shenandoah and Cumberland valleys and the freestone streams of the Blue Ridge Mountains. He is also a licensed Montana guide and guides the Ruby, Madison, Beaverhead and Big Hole in July and August. He is a member of the Board of Governors of the Federation of Fly Fishers Guides Association.
