What Should You Bring?
  • Equipment - Bring your own or use ours. We don't charge for that, and we have all the equipment needed for instruction or tours. We also offer hand-tied local flies.
  • Clothing - Dress as the weather dictates, but keep in mind that this is Vermont. Bring a change of clothes. Rain gear is, of course, a must!

Transportation is available from the Rutland Airport and train station. All clients coming by automobile need to call for rendezvous points. We have no shop and nothing to sell you, so we will meet you in a place that is convenient for you and has fishing close by.


There is a variety of lodging available from the expensive to moderate to more affordable. Camping is also available; White River Campground in Gaysville, VT offers a central location. We will be happy to make recommendations whatever your needs may be.
