Where you'll be

Areas that we access vary from river to river and are often geared toward the individual and river conditons. Some of the waters that we fish are the Esopus, Schoharie, Beaverkill, Willowemoc and others in the Catskills. Conditions consist of slow cautious movement with gentile casting on calm waters. Other water that we fish can be fast moving at times, however proper gear will be provided.

Oleh was an awesome guide and the experience was wonderful! We happened to have picked a very cold and windy day, and Oleh provided us with extra clothing, toe warmers, and hot coffee. He is a very personable and encouraging teacher. We felt we were in good hands as absolute beginners and were hooked by the sport immediately. Would definitely return in warmer weather and highly recommended!

We had a great day learning and fishing with Oleh. It was our first time fly fishing. Oleh was a very good and patient teacher. We did ‘school’ in the morning then fished all afternoon. Caught some fish and learned a lot. Can’t wait to come back and will definitely book with Oleh again.

Learning to fly fish with Oleh was amazing. I had been looking forward to fly fishing for a very long time and fishing with Oleh far exceeded all expectations. He is passionate about the sport, incredibly knowlegeable, funny (even his bad jokes, jk!) and best of all, patient. I learned I'm a better fisherman on grass than water (will get there) - but I was star struck at the beauty of Esopus Creek. I was a kid in Disneyland and very fortunate to have Oleh as my guide and teacher for my first fly fishing adventure.
