Daughter and I had a great time and caught some beautiful fish. Our Guide Matt H. was awesome super knowledgeable. Didn’t just teach my daughter the how to fish but why. Everything from showing her the nymphs and fly’s we were attempting to copy to what kind of places to cast. If you have a young beginner he’s the guide you want. Now she is hooked. It doesn’t hurt that he knows right where the fish are either.

Absolutely the most knowledgeable guide in the Catskills. –Raymond Yeager

I started fishing with Matt five years ago. It was my first time with a fly rod in my hand. From then on I’m hooked. Matt caters to my dry fly preference and always seems to find rising fish. I’m addicted to dry fly fishing the Catskills. –KEVIN MOGLIA

We were in town visiting friends and wanted our sons (9 and 14) to enjoy the day outside. Needless to say they had a blast floating down the river and catching smallmouth bass and trout. Thank You Guys! – Jenneth Cole
