Do I need a fishing License?

Yes, you need a current Pa. Fishing license if you are age 16 and older. You can get one on line from the Pa. Fish and Boat Commission at www.fish.state.us/license.htm .

Can I send my children under the age of 18 with you alone?

Sorry, all children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to be on my boat.

Can my children fish with us, and how about ladies?

You bet! Kids are great! And if they need any instruction on fishing I would be most happy to teach them while you fish. The youngest child I have taught to river fish was 7yrs old. I have only open faced spinning reels which are far better than the push button style for kids. They are much smarter than you realize. Ladies are always welcomed on my boat. We will make special "Pit Stops" for both.

Do you fish with us?

I will only fish with you if you invite me to, or if I need to find the next pattern. If the fish are not biting, I'll need to fish to find out what will work or maybe suggest a subtle "tip" to help you catch more fish. I will NEVER, EVER fish in water before my client does! My goal is for you to catch all the fish before I even wet a line.

Can I bring my pet with me?

Sorry, hooks, bait and pets don't mix. Can't allow it.

Can I bring alcohol on board?

Just a little. The law states that I can not drink alcohol, but my clients can. I allow my clients no more than two beers. You still have to drive home safely, and I want you back.

Can I smoke on your boat?

Sure you can, anything legal that is.I run a drug free boat!

What about lunch?

I have the lowest charter rates on the North Branch. Some people like to bring their own lunch. To keep my rates down, lunch is not included in my charter prices. However for $10.00/person I will provide lunch of 2 sandwiches, 2 drinks, chips, and a snack per person. .Lunch is automaticly included with the fly fishing package.

Do you give instructional Lessons?

Yes, I have three packages to chose from.

See my special trips page for more information.

If I book a charter with you, do I get to fish with you?

Absolutely ! There is no way that I would ever push you off to an "Associate" guide just to make some extra money that day. When you book with me that's what you get, ME! It's unprofessional to do otherwise. If you have a large party and ask me to find another guide to help, then I will try to find one but I am not responsible for the for what happens on the other boat.
