Fish with a friend?

I saw that Trout Unlimited has a "Fish with a Friend" program which sounds great but are there any alternatives to this that don't require TU membership? My brother and I are looking for someone more knowledgeable than us to fish with. We'll even buy lunch. :)

Anyone know of a way to hook up with locals to the Philadelphia or Poconos regions?

I've been fly fishing for fifty years and have considerable knowledge of stream lore, insects, casting, the whole enchilada. I'm willing to share/mentor but am only available during the week. Usually Tuesday through Thursday on various rivers in the western Catskills. I live in York county but only fish locally until about the end of the third week of April and starting again in July to fly fish for smallmouth bass.

Folks from this site fish together all the time and I've made some good friends here over the years. Hang out here and contribute to the forum and you'll get a feel eventually for who is in your neck of the woods. Send some PMs and I'll bet we can find you some fishing mentors/buddies.

I've been reading a lot lately about people from this site getting together to fish, I think it's great. I know from my own experience, I have meet many guys from here, and have enjoyed every minute of it.

I guess we have Dave to thank for this!


Stick around and you'll find many friends to fish with!

You can't run through a campground. You can only ran through it 'cause its past tents.

Shoot me a PM when you are heading out. I am pretty busy over the next few weeks, but as spring turns to summer, I should be able to meet up with you.

I live in Fairmount, but will be moving to Conshy soon.

It's nice if you can do it with some one local but I'd hire a guide. I've been fishing for many years and have become friends with a few guides over the last couple months and have learned tons from them.
