On behalf of the Stream and Brook fly fishing crew we would like to wish everyone a festive Thanksgiving. We had a great 2013 season except for early spring when rivers where high and murky for days on end. Once the rivers dropped back to a fishable levels, we were able to get clients on just about every species of fish that you can present a fly to.
We are expecting another great year in 2014. We’ve had several client from this year book a trip for their return to Vermont next year. We’ve had a couple gift certificates, and fly assortments purchased for Christmas gifts. No matter what your experience level, we can customize a trip for you. Everything from an hour casting lesson to full and half day guided trips to two day schools. If you live in Vermont or plan to come next year, put a Stream and Brook Fly Fishing Gift certificate at the top of Santa’s list. If you have a loved one who loves to fish, and you want to hit a home run on a gift for any occasion, you can’t miss with a fishing trip with a guide and assortment of flies .
River conditions are not exactly favorable right now. We had bitter cold settle over us this past weekend, which caused some ice to form and now we have a significant storm headed or way with a mix of precipitation and wind. It takes a certain type of angler to get out in these conditions, but if you are a hearty person looking for looking for a winter adventure we are here to help.
