Products & Services
We provide expertly guided flyfishing in the form of Walk/Wade trips on the Delaware River, West Canade Creek, Ausable River, Battenkill River, and some other lesser known, but equally productive trout streams in New York state. These streams are ranked among the top streams in the Northeast and compare to some of the best Western streams in many ways. On our guided trips, we provide all custom tied flies, and rental equipment is available, if necessary. Additionally, we can provide the same expert level of instruction in fly casting, fly tying and entomology.
We have an instructional program which has been very popular. It consists of a half day of instruction and a half day of fishing on any of the three rivers. The instruction is very comprehensive and covers:
- Casting instruction and practice
- Equipment, knots, flies, entomology, methods, and more...
We will provide all equipment, i.e. rod, reel, line, waders, flies, etc. as part of the course. Additionally, we will provide breakfast and lunch for you. Let us put you in this picture with the grace and agility of a beautiful cast.
