John has been fishing the ‘dacks for over 40 years and has had a popular television show for years on CBS called Adirondack Trails “Inside the Blue Line”. This experience has taken him to all corners of the Park fishing for brookies on the many remote brook trout waters in the area as well as the bigger rivers of the West Branch of the Ausable, Chateguay, Salmon and Saranac Rivers. John enjoys teaching the “new comer” the basics of casting, how to break the river down into smaller sections where the fish are and what 3 things you should know before selecting a fly. The more experienced anglers can be taken to more remote and challenging stretches of rivers that require careful wading and presentation.

Your first time to the Adirondacks can be an overwhelming experience. John can take that vision and scale it up or down for a rewarding overall Adirondack experience.

If grouse and woodcock hunting interests you don’t let the season end early without a “Cast and blast” with my German Short Haired Pointer!!!
