Promoting ethical angling, continuing to bring awareness about the outdoors’ fragile eco-system and teaching the proper skills on how to become better fishermen are just a few things that will be touched on during your day.
Since 1985, Walt has been a professional guide and instructor who advocates traditional, catch & release, fly fishing for the Salmon River Region of New York, the Deerfield River and others. Those who have spent time with Walt have found that he possess a unique and descriptive way in teaching which allows for easy understanding while furthering the enjoyment of spey casting and fishing.
Being the premier spey casting and fishing instructor, seasoned fishing coach and guide on these waters requires continuous work and dedication. Walt brings to the water each day his in depth knowledge and enthusiasm which enables you to become better fly fishers. These are just a few attributes why Walt is recognized to be one of the best in the sport today.
“Take the opportunity to learn and spey fish with Walt, North America’s Hardy Fly Fishing Ambassador .
You’ll leave the water a better spey caster and enjoy fly fishing with confidence.”
Walt is also the coordinator for Deerfield River Spey Day, the annual charity event to benefit cancer survivors, which he founded in 2009. Throughout the year Walt can be seen swinging a fly most anywhere in North America. During March thru May and again from September thru December, Walt is instructing and offers coached fly fishing trips in the Salmon River Region of upstate New York for salmon, trout and steelhead.
