the first fly cast of his life landed on the gin clear waters of a Norwegian
river, Andrew's passion had begun. More then thirty years later, fly fishing has
taken him to many destinations including the Bahamas, Canada, Pacific Northwest,
Montana and throughout the Northeast. The Catskills, however, have a
special place in his heart. Large wild trout rise frequently to abundant
hatches of mayflies, caddis and stoneflies. The Beaverkill and Delaware River
system is a magical place and Andrew is prepared to share his passion and
knowledge with you.
Andrew, owner of Tight Lines Fly Fishing in Parsippany, NJ, has taught thousands of people to fly cast and fish. He enjoys bringing fly fishing to a level where anyone can learn quickly and efficiently. Andrew is also very interested in teaching proper presentation, reading water, understanding hatches, fish movement and where to find them in which conditions and much more. Your day on the water with Andrew will be both informational and fun.
In addition to bringing a wide dimension of traditional fly fishing experience, Andrew's knowledge also includes many years of teaching spey casting. Regardless of where you are fishing, whether you're usually on small wooded streams, large rivers or the in the salt, spey casting will enhance your skills and ability to deal with variables often encountered in fly fishing. Some of these variables or challenges may include; inadequate back casting room, achieving needed distance, casting efficiently, changing direction easily, casting sink tips without effort and many others. Spey casting is something only taught upon request. He can also customize the day. For example, spend half day spey casting and half day dry fly fishing in the evening or fishing the entire day with a combination of traditional and/or spey casting techniques.
Unlike most guides, Andrew generally wades or uses pontoon boats as a mode of transportation. He enjoys teaching from foot, rather then a drift boat. This gives the angler the experience that will most closely represent what he will encounter when on his or her own.
