My husband and I recently had the pleasure of taking a guided fishing trip with Greg Caruso. Greg was extremely knowledgeable about the river, particularly some very remote areas, i.e., he knew the flies that were most appropriate for the time of year, etc. etc. etc. He could even carry an extensive conversations about the entomology of the river with my husband Steve (who is an avid fly fisherman) while expertly navigating our raft through white water…but, most importantly for me, he was very patient and kind with a “newbie” fly fishing “wanna be”. I learned a lot in a very few hours and thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience – which I really was not expecting to do. His attention to detail and his attentiveness to both my husband’s and my abilities (or lack thereof) made it very easy to ask questions and gain confidence as the day wore on. I will continue to practice the various fly fishing techniques he taught me and can’t wait to return for another river float trip in Maine!
All the best,
