The Beginning

Current Seams Fly Fishing LLC started as a fly fishing addiction between two friends in college. Before long, they were skipping class to chase wild trout on their fly rods. Their fly fishing “family tree” grew to include dozens of friends that they taught to fly fish.  After a few more years of honing their skills on Southern Utah’s wild trout population, it was time to share these fantastic fly fishing opportunities, and Current Seams Fly Fishing guide service was born

The Guides

Kevin Empey

Owner & Guide

Born in Southern Utah, but raised at the base of the Ruby Mountains in Nevada, a fly rod found its way into Kevin’s hands at age 12.  He honed his skills on wild brook trout with dry flies and hasn’t put down a fly rod since.  He moved to Cedar City, Utah for college and the abundance of streams and fish convinced him to stay. An avid angler for nearly 20 years, his passion is seeing new anglers fall in love with the sport.

Kevin and his wife Andrea have three kids, a girl and two boys.

Jace Adams

Owner & Guide

Born and raised in Southern Utah, Jace grew gills at an early age as he explored the entire region with a fly rod.  Multiple reservoirs and streams right out his back door fed the passion, which never subsided, and Jace quickly became an expert fly fisherman. A great fly caster also, Jace catches more fish than anyone else we know. No one knows the waters of Southern Utah better than Jace.

Jace and his wife, Holli, have three kids, two girls and one boy.

Chet Dalton

Chet is a native of small town Southern Utah and grew up near some of our favorite streams to fish. Chet began his fly fishing journey alongside his grandfather’s tying desk learning to tie up wooly worms, buggers, and other various nymphs for their next fishing trip. Throughout the years Chet has gained a great knowledge and respect for what Southern Utah has to offer a fly fisherman. 

Chet and his wife, Nicole, enjoy spending time with their furry children, Shadow & Pickles.
