It's Fishing Season!

HERE'S TO TIGHT LINES.

Once summer hits, many of the fishing seasons are in full swing, giving anglers plenty of choices. Summer fishing is a great way to escape from everyday stress--relax and enjoy the day’s catch.

Whether you fly fish Vermont’s creeks and streams, cast from a boat on Lake Champlain, or fish from shore, fishing is a slower-paced recreational activity – but that doesn’t mean it lacks excitement! The feeling of reeling in a fish is so exhilarating, so intoxicating, you’ll “get hooked” on the sport your first time out. For outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy experiencing nature and its resources, it’s one of the best feelings in the world.
