As said above, no endorsement is given to these guide services by their appearance here. If I missed any guide services, the guides can contact me at and I will gladly add them to the list.

The links below refer to the "old" Contraband Fly Casters website. The new website is at Thwe links for the new website are in the link bar at the top of the page. The old website will still be active for a few months while everything is ported over to the new site. The Tom Nixon Swap pages, however will stay at this address. Eventually we will also transfer the Tom Nixon Pattern page to the tripod server as well, from Geocities (due to a more liberal bandwidth allotment at Tripod). For comments and suggestions on the new website (no ads or pop-ups there) contact Ron Begnaud at For questions or comments on the Tom Nixon pages contact Mark at or at - September 12, 2006
