Welcome to Stream and Brook Fly Fishing!  We guide all over Vermont for everything that swims.

Valentines Day is coming up very soon. If you’ve surfed to this site thinking”Hey maybe I’ll see what these fly fishing guides have for gift ideas” you’ve come to the right place.  We offer some of the best gift ideas you’ll ever give your favorite fly fisher.

A gift certificate for a half or full day fishing with one of our guides is truly one of the most thoughtful gifts you can give someone who loves to fish, and is always looking to learn new water or different techniques. The only thing that could be better is if you joined in on the fun.

Every fly fisher needs flies. So an assortment of same flies that our guides use  , or a casting lesson from on of our instructors would certainly show your thoughtfulness.

Give us a call to ensure you are most loved this Valentines Day.

We take great pride in the services we offer:  Guided fly fishing trips for  beginners to the more experienced,  1 or 2 day “Learn to fly fish school”, fly tying and casting lessons.  As fly fishing guides and competitors, we have been seen on Vermont Public TV’s Outdoor Journal.  Co-owner,  Brian Cadoret,  has an outstanding article  for catching pike in the Otter Creek  in the recently released by Stonefly Press, “50 Best Places Fly Fishing the Northeast”.  Co-owner,  Brian Zinger,  is an outstanding fly tyer whom also owns Castawayflies.com, a online custom fly tying web site. Castawayflies.com  supplies all the trout flies for Stream and Brook guides.

Based out of Middlebury, Vermont,  our proximity to a host of different rivers and lakes, from up and down both sides of the Green Mountains, offers our clients the opportunity to catch beautiful, native brook trout, rainbow trout, and brown trout.  We have also worked to develop some great access on small and large mouth bass, and pike on the fly, which are often overlooked opportunity in Vermont.

Some of our guides fish in the Otter Creek Classic & Ditch Pickle Classic with a few wins and many top 3 finishes. We support river conservation.  Many of our guides are members of Trout Unlimited and the New Haven River Anglers, including past presidents.

Regardless of your experience, we can guarantee you an insightful and unique experience here in the Green Mountains of Vermont.  Our fly fishing guides have the skills to improve your dry fly presentation, nymphing, wet fly, and streamer techniques, as well as offer you instruction on how to “read” the water.  Our guests leave our services with the knowledge and skills that are applicable anywhere in the country.

Stream and Brook and our staff of talented fly fishing guides offer  Learn to fly fish schools, full and half day guided trips, canoe trips, and casting lessons.  The Inns we work with provide exceptional hospitality and many offer the ability to cast to rising trout just a few minutes from their rooms!

We look forward to supplying you information on our resources and the local rivers.
Feel free to contact us at any time to ask questions or to reserve a date for a school or guided trip.

Take Care and Tight Lines,

Brian Zinger, Brian Cadoret
