  Thank you for considering a trip with us.  We will go the extra yard to make sure your trip is an enjoyable one.  It doesn't matter if you fish one day or one week.  We can customize a package to fit your needs.  We cater to the traveling angler.  We can recommend many different overnight accommodations from a  Bed and Breakfast, a rental home or a motel room.  Deluxe accommodations with, with a fireplace and Jacuzzi, to relax in after a hard day fishing are available.  Bringing your spouse along is a popular option.  The southern Lake Erie shoreline is a cultural center with many fine points of interest. Lots of shopping, dinning and entertainment options await the non fishing guest.  During the October steelhead run there are many local winery's to visit and the fall foliage can be spectacular.  The area is rich in history and you can spend days just exploring the countryside and areas numerous covered bridges.  All this and fish too??  You bet!!

   Fly Fishing Magazine says:  "years of aggressive stocking by NY., Pa., and Ohio has resulted in the best remaining steelhead fishing in the world.  Fly fishers are reaping the rewards." Spectacular days are the rule not the exception
