SQUARETAIL FLIES & GUIDE SERVICE - Guided Maine Fly Fishing Adventures and Heritage Maine Flies


















HAVE YOU EVER WANTED TO FEEL THE THRILL OF A LANDLOCKED SALMON SMASHING YOUR SMELT STREAMER AS IT SWINGS THROUGH A POOL OR TROLLS BEHIND A CLASSIC GRAND LAKER CANOE DURING A SPRING SALMON CHOP?  HOW ABOUT BEING ON A NORTH WOODS POND AT THAT LAST MAGIC HOUR OF THE DAY IN EARLY JULY, CHASING THE FIRST RISES OF ELUSIVE LARGE BROOK TROUT COMING UP TO TAKE THE GIANT HEXAGENIA MAYFLY WE CALL "GREEN DRAKES" AND HAVING ONE TAKE YOUR FLY IN A BOIL?



THESE ARE THE DAYS THAT CREATE LIFETIME MEMORIES TO HELP GET YOU THROUGH A LONG WINTER AND THAT WILL HAVE YOU COMING BACK TO MAINE YEAR AFTER YEAR!

LET ME HELP YOU MAKE THOSE MEMORIES WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILIES!

WHY HIRE A GUIDE?  ALTHOUGH A GUIDE CAN NEVER GUARANTEE SUCCESS, THEY WILL HELP ELIMINATE GUESSWORK ON WHERE TO FISH AND WITH WHAT, HELPING TO MAXIMIZE YOUR SUCCESS ON THE WATER AS WELL AS TO HELP NAVIGATE ROADS AND TRAILS THAT CAN AT TIMES BE TRICKY IN THE NORTH WOODS.  THE LOGISTICAL ADVANTAGE OF NOT HAVING TO HAVE YOUR OWN BOAT OR CANOE IS ANOTHER PLUS.  SAFETY AND GOOD COMPANY ON THE WATER AS WELL AS GOOD, HEARTY CAMP COOKING ARE ALL ADDITIONAL BENEFITS!

GUIDED FISHING TRIPS CAN BE SET UP TO SUIT YOUR INDIVIDUAL DESIRES.  WITH OVER 40 YEARS EXPERIENCE FISHING VARIOUS MAINE WATERS I CAN HELP MAKE THOSE DREAMS OF YOURS A REALITY!  FISHING TRIP OPTIONS INCLUDE WEST GRAND LAKE/GRAND LAKE STREAM, MOOSEHEAD LAKE, BAXTER STATE PARK/WEST BRANCH OF THE PENOBSCOT, OR ALLAGASH REGION WATERS.  IF YOU ARE VISITING THE BANGOR AREA A FUN DAY CAN BE HAD TROLLING FOR LANDLOCKED SALMON ON NEARBY PONDS AND LAKES - ALL WITHIN REASONABLE DISTANCE.

ALTHOUGH FLY FISHING IS USUALLY MY PREFERRED METHOD OF CHOICE I AM ALSO VERY EXPERIENCED AND COMFORTABLE IN OTHER FISHING METHODS.
TARGETED SPECIES OPTIONS INCLUDE BROOK TROUT, LANDLOCKED SALMON, SMALLMOUTH BASS (BOTH SPIN CASTING AND ON THE FLY), AND WHITE PERCH.

AT NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE I WILL ALSO HELP FACILITATE APPROPRIATE LODGINGS WHEN NEEDED, USUALLY THROUGH HOUSEKEEPING CABIN RENTALS.  ASK ME ABOUT OPTIONS IN THE ALLAGASH, MOOSEHEAD LAKE, WEST BRANCH PENOBSCOT, AND GRAND LAKE STREAM REGIONS.

FULL DAY RATES INCLUDE LUNCH (HOT SHORE LUNCH IF ARRANGED AND CONDITIONS PERMIT) WITH HOMEMADE BAKED GOODS FOR DESSERT, WATER/SOFT DRINKS, AND GUIDE COFFEE OR TEA.  FISHING GEAR IS AVAILABLE FOR USE IF NEEDED ALTHOUGH PERSONAL WADERS AND WADING BOOTS ARE REQUIRED FOR WADING.

I AM ALWAYS IN SEARCH OF NEW WATERS AND FISHING OPPORTUNITIES.  FOR THOSE THAT ARE ADVENTUROUS AND WILLING TO ACCEPT A LITTLE MORE FISHING RISK I OFFER REDUCED RATES ON "EXPLORATION" TRIPS TO FIND AND FAMILIARIZE MYSELF WITH NEW WATERS.  RATES ARE $150 FOR A FULL DAY.  PLEASE INQUIRE FOR AVAILABILITY.

50% MINIMUM DEPOSIT REQUIRED TO RESERVE DATES.  YOUR DEPOSIT IS 100% FULLY REFUNDABLE WITH GREATER THAN 14 DAYS NOTICE.  DUE TO THE LIMITED FISHING SEASON, CANCELLATION WITH LESS THAN 14 DAYS NOTICE IS REFUNDED AT 50% OF YOUR DEPOSIT UNLESS I AM ABLE TO RE-BOOK THE DATE OR IT MAY BE APPLIED TO A FUTURE TRIP AT A MUTUALLY AGREED UPON DATE.  MOTHER NATURE CAN BE FICKLE AND IF INCLEMENT WEATHER MAKES CONDITIONS UNSAFE OR IMPOSSIBLE TO FISH AT MY ASSESSMENT YOU MAY EITHER CHOOSE TO RE-BOOK OR I WILL FULLY REFUND YOUR MONEY.
