Freshwater tackle

I am used to working with quality tackle as only quality is the way to go. I am partnering with companies that have stood the test of time: rods, reels, lines, flies, terminal tackle, accessories (shooting baskets, …), clothing, engines, marine electronics, safety equipment (self-inflating life vests), etc.
You are most welcome to use your own tackle and your own flies, but my rates include the use of high-end tackle for hire to and tuition help maximize your success on the water.

You won’t have to break the bank to outfit yourself with specific tackle items for a new type of fishing (sea, shad, salmon).
My tackle is there to be used, it will be your choice whether you take advantage of this or not. If you happen to be willing to invest into new tackle, I can advise upon the choices for adapted gear according to your level and available budget.
