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 STREAMER AS IT SWINGS THROUGH A POOL OR TROLLS BEHIND AN ICONIC MAINE 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 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?  OR PERHAPS CHASING MAINE'S PITBULL SMALLMOUTH BASS WITH TRADITIONAL SPINNING GEAR?














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

TARGETED SPECIES OPTIONS INCLUDE BROOK TROUT, LANDLOCKED SALMON, SMALLMOUTH BASS (BOTH SPIN CASTING OR ON THE FLY), TOGUE, AND PICKEREL.
