Wade Fly Fishing Trips

Half-Day Wade

$225 for 2, $150 for 1

Wading trips are designed to help you become a better fly fisherman after just one day on the water. I have found there is no better way to learn the finer points of fly fishing than by doing it with close instruction and detailed feedback. On a wading trip you will learn how to better read the water, determine fish activity, make the most effective fly selection, and to best present the fly to increase your chances of success.

Regularly waded rivers are the Swift River, Deerfield River, Connecticut River, and the Housatonic River; with many more throughout the region frequented at peak times. We also chase striped bass along the coast of Massachusetts both north and south of Boston, and all of Cape Cod.

Half-day wading trips are 4 hours long and include snacks and drinks, as well as all gear. $225 for 2, $150 for 1.
