We are located in the beautiful Western Mountains of Maine, birthplace of Fly Rod Crosby who was the first Registered Maine Guide and is highly regarded as the Annie Oakley of Fly-Fishing. Our secluded and historic 5 acre trout pond is private and has natural and stocked Brook and Rainbow Trout. No fishing license is required for guests to fish our idyllic Trout pond.


This all encompassing “Fly-Fishing Clinic” is for beginners as well as experienced fly fishermen ages 7 and up. Weather you’re a seasoned angler or just starting out, improve your skills with our fly casting clinics, knots, fly tying and more. You will be instructed on theory and practice of casting on Fox Carlton Pond. Our expert instructors will guide you step by step through the four-part cast, false cast and roll cast. They will explain how to strip and shoot line as well as tying fishing knots, reading water, tackle know how, fly selection, approach and presentation, playing, landing and releasing fish. “Tenkara” fly-fishing uses only a rod, line & fly, is very easy to learn and a valuable tool to get beginners involved in the sport and experienced fly fishermen to find another way to enjoy the outdoors.
