Fly Fishing Expert Clay Schumacher
  • Clay Schumacher

    I've had a fishing rod in my hand since I could walk. Born in San Antonio, TX but grew up in Nor Cal., where I fell in love with the art of Fly Fishing! Living on the Russian River, I learned the sticks on a drift boat and how to hook SteelHead on the fly.

    Since then, it's been an all consuming obsession! After over 20yrs in Real Estate, I decided about 5yrs ago it was time for a change!! Do what you love ❤️

    While I am still a Real Estate investment consultant, passion is in the River!

    My wife and I own Chasing Scales Guide Service, specializing in the lower Guadalupe River for monster trout in the winter months. In the summer we will be found on the upper Guadalupe River, the San Marcos river and the Lano river fishing for large and small mouth bass. When I am not on the river with clients, you will mostlikely find me at the coast chasing red fish on the fly!

    look, I'm not here to sell you anything! I'm a guide that's my JAM 🤣 I'm here as an Expert in my craft. That's it! It's kinda like going the the fly shop with your guide to GUIDE you in the best direction. So, that being said let's go shopping 🛒 I'm here just to help you make the best purchase no matter your skill set Or price point!

    Clay the man!
    Clay was super knowledgeable about getting me started as a fly fisherman. He is a guide, so he naturally had great recommendations that were fitting to my budget.

    Clay was amazingly helpful, and found a rod for me that I never would have found or heard of. I can't wait for it to arrive so I can get it out on the water.

    Awesome guy. I bought a flyrod for my father in law and I don't know much and Clay made me feel like I was already a flyrod user. Amazing knowledgeable guy and lots of passion. Thanks Clay. Griff
