I can't think of a better way to clear the brain than a day of fishing with Fred. I have been on several guided trips including fly fishing on Salmon River in Pulaski, NY and also Chittenango Creek. On one occasion I even talked my husband into joining me! After years of spin fishing he finally tried his luck at fly fishing. It was a beautiful fall day on Salmon River and Fred took us to the most gorgeous places there.

I've been fishing since I was a little girl and had inherited most of my grandfather's fly gear. I used to practice casting in the yard for hours but had never known anyone who could actually show me how to fly fish. When I heard about a ladies fly fishing retreat years ago in Pulaski NY, hosted by Fred, I met him for the first time and his enthusiasm about the sport has had me hooked ever since. He has taught me the importance of matching the hatch, how to work on my different casting techniques, and how to read the river.

In the middle of the day, Fred always pulls out the biggest spread for lunch which includes some of the best sandwiches I've ever had. He is a patient and knowledgeable teacher. He's the perfect guide no matter what your level of experience is. A day on the river with Fred is better than a week of vacation anyplace else!

Very excellent here sir! Wishing you all the best in the new year! It is impossible for me to think back on memories of time along Great Lakes waters, life around Pulaski, salmon fishing and steelheading without reflecting with big grins about our time shared working, or at the LOSA seminar, or wetting lines (and landing some nice fish too!) in whatever Mother Nature threw at us. Your appreciation and respect for the natural resources of the region have always been sincere, heartfelt and greatly appreciated by me. I know we don't catch up often enough across the miles there buddy but certainly wishing you an excellent year ahead and hope to wade beside you again soon in the New Year.

Fred is a class act. From soup to nuts, he made my first Salmon River visit a life long memorable experience. I will make it a point to come back and fish with him again. Fred, U DA BOMB!! Keep rocking!

This summer day was made for fishing…overcast, mild and little wind. The mosquitoes had taken a vacation somewhere away from the Salmon River in Pulaski, NY. The water was the usual summer flow at about 185 cfs. Fred brought a variety sweet rod and reel combos to fish with. This was to be 4lb line spin fishing day. He would ask if I wanted to fish for Bass, Atlantic Salmon or Rainbow and Brown Trout on each section we went to that day, and then he would choose which equipment that would be appropriate. Fred explained in detail, the “where's and how to's” to get the most out of each hole and run, (with his usual wry sense of humor).

He could tell I had some experience fishing with this type of gear, but I felt a little uneasy using them on such a large body of water. I just put myself in his hands and didn't let that feeling get in the way of really enjoying the day. He has his favorite lures and tackle for the conditions and time of year and that proved to be right on, for each section we fished.

I wound up catching almost all the possible types of fish available for this time of year. The catching was fun but the best part of the day was being with someone who knows and understands what it means to be a part of nature and all her gifts and resources.

Fred is simply a blast to have as a guide! His thorough knowledge of fly fishing always adds to a wonderful learning experience, and combined with his unstoppable humor, you're simply bound to have as an amazing day as I had. Not to mention, all the outstanding goodies he brings along as well. YUM! Thanks Fred for a wonderful adventure! Hopefully I can be able to get down that roll cast you showed me someday.

I don't typically measure a day by fish caught, it's the icing - just this time it was particularly good icing... JeanAnn was ecstatic about her new fishing abilities, bubbling with words like "trajectory" and "ambidextrous"; my best memory from Sunday was her consistent laughter from across the river - just can't put a price on that.

I've taken 10 day vacations that weren't as rejuvenating as those 2 days. Thanks for being a part of that, hopefully we'll connect again this fall if not sooner.

Fred, great website. I have never used your services but would like to say that I do remember you when you were the guy at the DSR that would keep it a quality place to fish the SR. You were a class act then and I'm sure that anyone that uses your services would get MORE than what they paid for. Here's wishing you a great season and keep up the good work in trying to improve the fishery. :-)
- Jack, Pennsylvania

Can't think of a better person to take up guiding. Thanks for all the sage fishing advice! See you on the stream.
- Chris B., New York

Great website, Fred. Really top notch. Hope to be hiring you soon for a great day of Steelhead fishing on the beautiful Salmon River.
