Patrick put me on fish. PERIOD.
I was having trouble catching fish on the Swift River. After hiring a guide who didn't produce even a nibble, I decided to meet up with Patrick. Within the first 5 seconds of having a fly touch the water we had a fish on! I knew it was going to be a great day from that point. We went on to catch about 15 fish that day. He helped turn a frustrating river into my favorite spot to fish in Mass.
If I could recommend one guide service to teach anyone out there how to fly fish it would have to be Early Rise Outfitters. These guys have some serious trout knowledge and will provide you with plenty of fish brought to the net, not to mention some awesome stories and an unforgettable experience. I have now been able to go out with Patrick twice for trout and both times I have had many fish caught and many laughs shared. Wether you're a new fly fisherman or a seasoned vet in the sport these guys will teach you many new things and start up a passion that will last a lifetime!
