Ready to Experience a Fly Fishing Retreat Unlike Any Other? 

                                Here's your chance...

Starting in 2016 the "REEL MEN" have partnered with "TROUT HAVEN" to bring you an incredible fly fishing experience you will NOT forget !!


It's stream fishing for HUGE trout on private water - rainbows, browns and brookies eager to take your fly.  It's fly fishing only and catch and release after you've taken a picture of what may be the biggest trout you've ever caught!! (In case you missed it, watch the video above!)


We've arranged with "Trout Haven" guide "Andrew T." to offer 1, 2, & 3 day

trips to this "Trout Mecca" in Central Pennsylvania, limited to 6 fishermen per trip. These trips start in April and continue through October, and will fill up on a "first come, first serve" basis. 


All trips include lodging at the brand new "Hemlock Lodge", all meals for your stay including gourmet dinners, all beverages including beer & wine, rod fees on up to 2 miles of private trout water, a gift from your guide, and guide service for a portion of your trip!  If you live in PA, NY, VT, MA, CT, NJ, DE, MD, VA, WV or OH and you fly fish,  YOU DO NOT want to miss out on this opportunity !!


Check out the TROUT HAVEN website at, and call

"Andrew T." at 607-643-1415 to book your trip before they fill up!

I've set up a special picture gallery on the "Wall of Fame" on this website showing some of the trout caught at "TROUT HAVEN".  I've fished there

ten times so far and on my best 3 day trip I caught and released over 100 trout.


My biggest trout at "Trout Haven" to date was a 21" brook trout , a 25" brown trout, and a HUGE, heavy 27" rainbow!  Book YOUR trip NOW !!
