Walk and wade trips are our most popular service, we will spend either a full or half day exploring the rivers and streams of Vermont on foot. We also offer a short walk and wade “Fish the Hatch” service if you are hoping to hit seasonal hatches, or small time windows of availability. Vermont has and abundance of beautiful free stone streams and rivers that provide excellent dry fly, nymph fishing, or tossing streamers. We do our best at Stream and Brook to make sure that the experience is as enjoyable as the instruction. Whether it’s stalking brookies in the cool mountain streams or casting clear across a river to a sipping brown we are there to support you. Or tempting hungry Smallmouth Bass with streamers. We are happy to build these trips around your schedule and interests. If you are looking for something different check out our Norther Pike and Other Species services for a chance at an exotic trophy.

Group Fly Fishing

We think doing outdoor activities with friends and family is very important. Getting out fly fishing with a large group is the type of activity that memories are made of. If you've got a large gang of 5 or more in your party, who want to get out and enjoy some time on the water, we have the gear and guides to accommodate. Perhaps you're in Vermont for a wedding, family gathering, business retreat, or just a bunch of friends that love fly fishing. Or maybe you all want to try something fun and new. No matter the reason, or skill level, we can customize a trip to meet your needs. Contact us as soon as possible since we'll need to get multiple guides partnered up, and a 25% deposit is required for group events.

Our 2 day school is geared more for the beginner, someone who is looking to get a "soup to nuts" experience to learn all about the sport of fly fishing. Again, you will not be in a large group, only you and the people you wish to learn with. Each day will be about 6 hours long with a guide/instructor. The 1st day is land based. You will learn about all the the gear you'll need to get started ie. different rods for pursuing different fish species, waders and wading boots, different types of fishing vests that hold the accessories important for a fun day on the water. You'll learn the different foods that fish eat and the flies we use to imitate those food sources . You'll learn how to tie different knots that are important. You'll learn 4 different casting methods on the grass. We do this so you can focus only on the casting instruction not catching fish, or managing line on the water. You'll get that instruction on day 2 when you'll start to apply everything you learned from day 1. You'll also learn strategies, techniques, how to read the water and some basic entomology, all in an effort to actually catch fish and much more. 1 angler- $450 each additional angler- $300
