Had such an amazing experience with Berkshire Fly Fishing! Went on a half day trip, first time fly fishing and had no idea what to expect. Bernie, my guide was phenomenal. Super knowledgeable about the rivers, the fish, was patient with me, he was passionate and you can really tell he loves what he’s doing. I learned so much, definitely caught the bug and still can’t believe I managed to catch a couple trout with a fly rod. Can’t recommend these guys enough!

My friend and I had an awesome time fly fishing on the Housatonic River. Bernie was a fantastic guide. He taught me the fundamentals of fly fishing and I was casting in almost no time. I would recommend for anyone who is considering taking up this hobby or if they are just in need a peaceful morning fishing.

We would highly recommend Berkshire Fly Fishing if you are looking for a local fly fishing guided tour. We went a few weeks ago with some friends. Scott and Bernie were both incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Everyone in a crew caught fish too, which made it extra enjoyable!

I had a great time fishing with Bernie today on the Housatonic River. He was a knowledgeable and patient guide with excellent teaching skills. He did a wonderful job helping my 8 year old son get the hang of casting. This was exactly what I was hoping for. I can't think of a better fishing guide. Highly recommended!

We charted two floats and two guides as part of a company retreat event in the Berkshires. The team had little or no experience. We had a great time and can recommend the firm with enthusiasm and no reservations. The guides were professional, communicated well, customer oriented, and extremely knowledgeable.

Where do I even begin!? Harry Desmond (and the entire Berkshire Rivers Fly Fishing team) is top notch. My dad and I have been fishing with Harry for years - in fact, we spent a day on the river with Harry back in his first season of operating Berkshire Rivers - and I say with 100% sincerity, Harry is an all time fly fishing guide. He is patient, kind, beyond knowledgable, emphatic, organized, and most importantly: an incredible teacher. Harry is not just a fly guide, but a true educator, and you will leave your time on the water with him itching to get back out there, and spending more time on the river. I've learned so much from him, and it's been such a delight to see Harry grow the sport of fly fishing in the Berkshires, introduce countless people to the beauty of our local rivers, and spread the love of fly fishing throughout the region. Get out for a day (or two or three) with Berkshire Rivers...you're in for a real treat!

I did a float trip down the Housatonic with Scott from BRFF at the end of May. Amazing day! Scott was patient, knowledgable and just an all-around good guy to spend the day on the river with. I learned a bunch and caught a lot of fish. What more could you want?! 100% recommend and a friend and I are talking about doing this again.

Harry is a fantastic guide, great teacher and all around stand-up dude. Within ten minutes he had my mechanics all fixed up. I went from throwing piles of line to darts - absolute laser show for the rest of the trip. My half day wade was full of knowledge share, great conversation, and fish, of course, lots and lots of fish. I couldn't have been happier with my experience and definitely look forward to my next one with Berkshire Rivers Fly Fishing.

Harry is a knowledgeable guide on the water. I took along a friend of mine with no experience and he managed to help her catch with some patient instruction. I’m hoping to get out again soon. A very professionally represented outfit, communication was clear. The trip has to be rescheduled due to weather twice and through it all, the communication was direct and thorough which I appreciated. Well done Harry!

Cannot sing Harry’s praises more! Just a great day and a beautiful river to fish. We didn’t see another human being all day, caught some great fish and I learnt so much from an incredible fisherman. Harry is great company and an oracle of knowledge when it comes to fly fishing and this river! I will be back for many more days out with Harry on the float a truly great experience
