After many years of guiding anglers on NH waters in all forms of fishing, I now limit my guide service to fly fishing. I have dispensed with the ice gear, the heavy tackle, spinning gear and downriggers, now focusing exclusively on fly fishing rivers & streams, lakes & ponds.
Springtime offers varied trout species depending on water body - Rainbows, Browns and Brookies are all possible. Summertime is more a bass outing with predominately river Smallmouth and the ocasional Largemouth. Whatever your preference - Stillwater or moving,
Dry Flies, Streamers or Nymphs I can put you on a spot. Depending on experience and skill level, I can take up to three.
What is fly trolling you ask...Trolling with fly rods is a traditional New England/Atlantic Canadian method of fishing. Since the early 1800's, this is the original way it was done 100+ years before they ever invented downriggers or the spinning rod. This highly effective method is limited to springtime from a little after ice-out to about Memorial Day (early to mid May is best). Species sought are Landlocked Salmon, Lake Trout, Rainbows and Browns depending on water body. There is no casting involved so anyone can do this. Its a great way to get introduced into fly fishing. Beginners welcome!
