Wide Sky will be partnering with the great folks at the Town of Victor Parks and Recreation Department. Our Introduction to Fishing is designed to introduce beginners to the sport of fishing. Of course, we think everyone should pick up a fly rod at some point, but we understand the beginning for many fly anglers is with a spin rod (and maybe even a night-crawler...).
See program description and details below:
Looking for a safe, fun and informative program for your children? Topics include: gear, knots, safety, bait, lures, fish habitat, identification and regulations. The class will conclude with a mini fishing tournament, where the participants will use the information they learned in class. All registrants must provide their own gear (rod, reel, pencil/slip bobber, bait, lures, ball cap and sun glasses). Instructor Jessie Hollenbeck is a New York State Licensed Fishing Guide (AHA First Aid, CPR, AED and ARC Water Safety Today trained).

Wide Sky is excited to announce we are partnering with Craig Dennison on another Fly Fishing Camp. The Camp will be held at Black Creek Park in Chili next Sunday, September 22 from 10am-4pm in the Pathfinder Pavilion. Participants may register by visiting Chili Recreation Department. The fee is $50 and is for ages 12 and up. Please see camp description below:
Have you always thought it would be fun to try fly fishing? Fly Fishing Camp is a unique, hands-on program designed for the beginner or less experienced fly fisher. Enhance your fly fishing knowledge, improve your casting, identify aquatic insects/prey, understand tactics for various fisheries, learn new fly patterns, tie your own fly, determine what gear you need for fly fishing and compare notes with fellow anglers (program itinerary may change due to weather conditions). Time will be spent casting and fishing the pond at Black Creek Park (Pathfinder Pavilion). Some gear (rods, reels etc.) will be available, but we encourage you to bring your own. Also, please bring your own snacks and lunch.
Hope to see you there!
Shared some time on the water with Tom McDermott. We were able to catch some fish, but the low water is making fish weary and difficult to put a fly in front of.
Tom was able to land this nice brown on a midge pupa under an indicator.
We saw some tricos, but nothing in great numbers.
This picture was from a couple weeks ago. Seems as though the trico fishing has picked up since then.
Barb and John called to inquire about 2-hours of on stream instruction - in all places, Spring Creek. We had a blast! Very little pressure from other anglers and we were able to work on some of the things that were important to the two of them.
Small weighted flies with an indicator produced several beautiful wild browns.
Thanks for coming out with Wide Sky, Barb and John! See you on the water!
