What our customers say
I Have fished with Joe Rist over the last 3 seasons in differing conditions and can say that my time with him has always been a pleasure. You won't find a better guide than Joe in all the Catskills. His knowledge of insect behavior and his skill in locating the prime places to fish is impressive. Anyone who has fished for a good period of time knows that there are days that will test the limits of any guide and any anglers' abilities and catching one or two trout can be a major accomplishment. I have fished these kind of days with Joe and he never gives up constantly analyzing the conditions to figure out what can give results. On a recent 82 degree day the end of May with bright sun, there were no fish rising but Joe put me into fish swinging wet flies as well as using dry/dropper technique in fast riffles. When the conditions are good, it is "fish on"!!
Joe is a pleasure to spend time with having enormous patience and a good sense of humor. I am certainly looking forward to my next outing with Joe.

Joe, Thank you again for a great morning on the water and helping me catch my first few trout on a fly! I appreciate all the tips and confidence you gave me. I wish I could go back tomorrow and try for the big one that got away but I'll have to wait for next year. I look forward to fly fishing back home.
Thank you from Russia:
It took me some time to get to my PC to send this note - I want to thank you very very much for the two unforgettable days in Upstate New York ! I spent fantastic time on the water and It would never be this without your friendly, professional and sharing companionship! Thanks a lot , I had a lot of fish, a lot of fun and new experience!
Sure we see each other again on those beautiful streams and maybe some others!
