We provide all rods, reels, tackle, waders, instruction, hydration (water), and photography services. You simply bring outerwear compatible with the conditions, sunglasses (polarized if possible), a clean pair of socks, and lunch if you are booking a full day trip. I normally stop at the Wayside country store in Arlington, VT which has a full deli, coffee, drinks, bathroom, etc. on the way to the river. Morning trips normally start at 7am and evening trips from 4pm till dark. Fishing is normally best early in the am or evening.

Our time is valuable too, a $150 deposit is required toward the cost of the trip to confirm your spot. These deposits are non-refundable so make sure you are committed before you book. If you do have to cancel we will refund your deposit provided that we can rebook the dates that you have canceled, otherwise you will be issued a credit toward your next adventure which will expire one year from date of the of cancellation.

To discuss further details and to BOOK YOUR TRIP make your DEPOSIT by phone(802)688-4304:

If we have to cancel your trip due to circumstances beyond our control i.e. dangerous weather, water levels, etc. We will refund your deposit in full. Rain is not considered dangerous weather, however, when lightning is heard or seen and for your safety as well as ours, our guide is required to stop fishing and seek safe shelter, not to fish again for a duration of 10 minutes upon the last observation.

All freshwater fish are caught and released
