Mike Heck's Trout Guides

One or Two Day Fly Fishing Schools
At the end you walk away with your own Orvis Clearwater 864 Mid 6.0 a 8'6" 4 weight outfit or the 7'9" Clearwater 5wt outfit!  It all depends on what you want.  I can say the 7'9" cast a great 4wt line.  That is why I have added it!!!  The day will begin with casting lessons and some knot tying.  Next we hit the stream to teach essential fly fishing techniques used to fool trout.  From there, I'll show where you can find trout, feeding lies, simple ways to ID insects, what patterns to use and so much more.  Classes are eight hours long which includes meal, flies and plenty of fun.  A deposit of $175.00 is needed and is not refundable.

DESTINATION TRIPS 
Trip to Spring Creek, PA
I have enjoyed fishing over some great early season hatches on this fine Central, PA no-kill trout stream.  The season gets kicked-off with some early season blue winged olives then green caddis, to sulphurs, tricos, terrestrials and midges.  Spring Creek is best known for "Fisherman' Paradise" the public no-wading access along the hatchery, but has some great water outside this section of stream. These are wade trips only. Trip includes transportation from Chambersburg to river, flies, great riverside lunch and fly rods if needed. Learn how to get there, best areas to fish, insects and fly patterns to match. Trips to this outstanding fishery available from April to October.   
     $250.00/person/day            $350.00/ 2 anglers/day          $450.00/ 3 anglers/day
