Personal attention for greater fly fishing growth

Fishing 101- Basic Training

Discovering the confidence to fish on your own

We realize that there are many adults who may have fished as a youth, but not as an adult and might need help to getting started. We can show you the basics of spin fishing too!

Rate: $40 a person per hour

Guided Trips

Explore the diversity of the Finger Lakes!

The Finger Lakes region of New York has a diverse array of fish species to target, as well as many different water types. Season and weather will dictate where we fish as water level and temperature play a major role in location and species we target.
