HI, my name is Joe Ackourey.  I’m an expert fly fisherman and fly tier and licensed Pennsylvania fly fishing guide with nearly five decades of experience to share with you. MY late father, Dick Ackourey, a true master on the stream and at the vise took me under his wing at the early age of 6, where I first learned to tie trout flies and fly fish.  Some of my most popular destinations include the Lackawanna River, Bowman Creek, the Susquehanna River, and a variety of small mountain streams.  I also teach fly casting, knot tying & fly tying at all levels, from beginner to advanced, and will provide custom lessons to meet your needs. I look forward to sharing my time-tested techniques with you.

    Hi Joe, Just wanted thank you for your great presentation yesterday evening at the Twin Tiers Five Rivers Chapter of the IFFF inin the Southern Tier of NY. Sorry I was not able to stay at the end so you could show me the special line retrieve you learned from your father. Hope you return and your lessons and guide services interest me. I am sort of a beginner at fly fishing and never was taught how to be a fly tyer.
