erkshire Rivers Fly Fishing made our father-daughter outing magical. It was the first time my 12 year-old caught a trout. Harry Desmond made the whole experience special for her. He went the extra mile for us. He was patient, kind, encouraging, and courteous. I have had many guides — from Vermont’s Ottauqueechee to the Yellowstone in Montana and south the to San Juan in New Mexico — and Harry exceeded them all in affability, ability, and availability. I am looking forward to “hooking-up” again this coming spring.
y wife and I have been fly fishing with Berkshire Rivers Fly Fishing for about three years. We thoroughly enjoy each outing. Harry Desmond possesses a deep knowledge of the local rivers and fishing techniques. That knowledge is perfectly matched by the pleasantness with which he guides guests of all skill levels. We have introduced Harry to friends and family, always with great success, and even brought our 12-year-old on a recent outing. We find him to be encouraging and patient. We look forward to many more guided trips.
s a surprise birthday gift for my husband, I booked a half-day fly fishing lesson with Harry Desmond. Harry showed us the basic techniques and continued to build on those basics as we were out on the river fishing. Harry is knowledgeable about nature and the surrounding environment. He provided valuable observations and information as it relates to fly fishing. He also gave us a beginner’s lesson in choosing the proper flies. His fly fishing lesson was informative and “hands on.” We are looking forward to our next lesson with Harry.
n a whim, having never fly-fished before, I decided to book a day with Berkshire Rivers Fly fishing for my father’s 60th birthday. After a few quick e-mails and a phone call, I knew I had chosen the right guide. Harry Desmond led us through the process with professionalism and enthusiasm. Harry is an expert in his field and a pleasure. He has vast knowledge of the waterways in the Berkshires and is a natural teacher. I would recommend Berkshire Rivers Fly Fishing to anglers of all levels and look forward to booking with Harry again.
