About Us

We are an Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Guide Service on the Upper Delaware River System in NY & PA. We also guide smallmouth bass fishing with flies or light tackle through the summer & fall on this incredibly fertile river system. The Lake Erie tributaries provide some of the best steelhead fishing anywhere and we're there in season hosting our annual Steelhead Camp. The winter months find us booking and hosting fly fishing trips to Patagonia, both on the Chilean & Argentinean side of the Andes. Added in to it all is saltwater fly & light tackle fishing on the northern NJ shore during July through November.

The Upper Delaware River System is the best wild trout fishery in the eastern US. This river system includes the West Branch of the Delaware, East Branch of the Delaware, Main Stem of the Delaware, Beaverkill, Willowemoc and Neversink Rivers. In addition to great fly fishing, we are happy to arrange lodging for your stay.

April through October you can fly fish the Delaware River, West Branch, and East Branch of the Delaware, the Neversink River, Beaverkill or the Willowemoc for the wild trout of the Catskills. Drift boat or wade fishing, learn the techniques, the hatches and the flies of the Delaware River System.

The Delaware River is an outstanding smallmouth bass fishery too. Field & Stream Magazine calls the Upper Delaware River one of the top five smallmouth bass rivers in the US! You can fish for these acrobatic fighters on light tackle or fly fishing gear. Smallmouth bass are a great fish and a lot of fun for beginners and experts alike. July through October is your best bet for smallmouth bass fishing on the Delaware River.

July through November you can also light tackle or fly fish the saltwater with us. Enjoy a fun day casting for blues, stripers and false albacore or drifting for summer flounder/fluke and weakfish. Saltwater fishing begins in the Sandy Hook - Atlantic Highlands area of New Jersey on our 23' center console.

Lake Erie's famed tributaries are where you can come steelhead fishing during the famous spawning run of "steelhead alley". Join us on our limited access waters for some of the best steelhead fishing in the US.

From November through March we host trout fishing trips to Patagonia and bonefish trips to our location in the Bahamas.

All skill levels of anglers are welcome. Corporate and business outings as well as social groups are easily accommodated.

Call or email to schedule your time on the water!

"You taught me more about fishing in one day than I learned in a lifetime of spin fishing. I've been on other guided fishing trips in the past, but can say unequivocally that I've never had a guide that worked as hard as you."
