Guided fly fishing - Lake Placid region

Fly Fishing Guiding and Instruction

For over twenty-five years, I have made it my personal quest to be the very best fly fishing guide and instructor possible.  I am happy to share my passion, and expertise by offering quality fly fishing guiding and instruction with all ages and skill levels. Whether you’re seeking a half-day escape from the everyday stresses of life, or a weekend sampling of the majestic Ausable, Saranac or other regional waters, I am confident that your objectives will be fully realized.
