At a Glance

Outsmarting a trout with a fly rod has for a century been the Holy Grail of American sportsmen ranging from Ernest Hemingway to Bing Crosby and Ted Williams. In the spectacular North Country of Maine, backwoods-savvy fly-fishing guides teach you the secrets of what Izaac Walton called “The Contemplative Man’s Recreation.” In a locale known for some of the best fishing in the East, set out each day from Appalachian Mountain Club cabins to nearby ponds and rivers to try out your new or newly polished skills — tying knots, rigging your rod, casting and knowing the precise time to “hit” a hungry brook trout. By week’s end, you may have even spotted a moose!
