Fishing Aroostook County, Maine

A crash course in fly fishing with Master Maine Guide and trout bum Paul Sveum. We’ll cover gear, casting in our private casting pond and on our half-mile of Aroostook River frontage, fishing in nearby moving and still water and the basics of fly tying you need to get started.

The trip will be a nice balance of remote pond and larger river fishing. We’ll explore the ponds by canoe, and will also float the river by canoe.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
