Full and half-day trips to prime Pennsylvania rivers and streams.
If you say “Show me the fish” we’ll show you the fish! If you say “show me how” we’ll show you how. Our goal is to increase your overall enjoyment of being on the water. Catching more and bigger fish, better understanding fish behavior, or becoming a better fly-caster. No matter how long you’ve been fly fishing, you will leave the water with a better understanding of the art and a greater appreciation of the experience.
In addition to the chance of hooking a trophy trout, you can expect instruction on:
