Summer! We really like this season both for guiding and playing. Things like: Caddis hatches in the evening. Exploring small tribs for native brookies. Day hikes to those small alpine ponds. Tailgate b.s. sessions. Riverside lunches. Headlamp trips back to the truck. Wiffle Ball! Wildflowers in full bloom. Deer and moose sightings. 5X. Secret swimming holes. Drakes and Alder Flies. Macanudos and Herradura apres events. Farmers markets. Wet wading. Spey casting for trout. Evening lightning seen on the going home commute. New 4 weights. Double taper floating lines. Early morning's first light.
Those are just a few things so far this summer for us. How about you? Make a list. It's going to fly by. Fill it.
Shameless promo announcement: We have no more openings this month, what we do have are some openings for July. Spinner falls, caddis, alder flies, drakes and bwo's will be the special of the day. The dry fly game is alive and well next month. Don't miss out.
I started this company as an independent guide who could provide a higher level of service. I began my career as a river guide in The Forks. After a season on the Kennebec and Dead rivers I moved over to the West Branch of the Penobscot where I spent six seasons guiding and fishing those waters.
Before long stories of other rivers and ranges beckoned. I lived and played in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, New Mexico, Utah, California and Alaska.
As great as waters like The Henry's Fork, The Missouri, The Gros Ventre and Flat Creek were I always knew I would return to live in Maine. With the amount of moving water in this state I am continually finding new places to explore.
Guiding for me is still as fresh today as it was when I first started. I can't think of a more rewarding occupation.
