" Surely one of the richest bounties of angling is to grow deeply intimate with the inner life of the world of nature, and in so doing, to come closer to your deepest self."

Have you ever considered fishing the Catskills in New York, challenging wild rainbows and brown trout on the West & East Branches of the Delaware, fishing the historic Beaverkill or Willowemoc, hiking down into a gorge on the Neversink for brook trout?  Are you the Angler who enjoys small brook trout streams?  I have fished them all with a passion and can guide you to them to enjoy!
  My classroom is the water!  Learn the basic information one needs to get started in fly-fishing.  See through the eyes of a guide how to approach fish, learn knots, learn the body language of a feeding fish and what stage of the fly he is feeding on!  See "Services"
"Providing Daily stream conditions"
See reports and photo's page!

Are you ready to enter the next level of fly-fishing?  I offer fly tying lessons by appointment only, learn the basic flies which will catch trout.  Over the years I have learned a simple method to entice fish to rise to my flies.  Nothing is more exciting than a fish taking your own tied fly!  See "services".
Wading a river or a stream is a wonderful adventure! Looking beyond the water is special at times!
