Guide Service

Basically

Most trips I offer through my guide service are drift boat style float trips and anglers of all skill levels are welcome. Some of our most enjoyable days are spent with first time anglers. Each guide trip is set up for hosting 2 anglers per boat and larger groups or corporate trips can be accommodated with multiple guides and boats.

Equipment

All terminal tackle and flies are provided by my guide service and I am equipped to provide you with rod and reel if needed. I work with several quality manufacturers and am more than happy to provide this equipment for the day. You are welcome to use your own rod and reel if you prefer. I also carry a digital camera and will be happy to provide you with a CD to remember the day. I will need you to sign a photo release form in the event that I use your photo for future publishing to magazine, web or advertising.

You will need to bring appropriate clothing to match the weather here, call a few days prior to your trip to discuss your options. You will need your own waders, ‘Korkers’ are recommended and you should bring polarized glasses.  You will also need a New York State fishing license.  This can be obtained locally or on line.  A lunch is provides as part of the service and non-alcoholic drinks are included in the package. In cold weather this will be a hot lunch and beverage.  You are more than welcome to bring a beer or two, after all, we are fishing!
