My brother and I went out with Bernie and had an awesome morning out on the river. I've been flyfishing about a year and had a lot of bad habits Bernie helped me break. My brother who had never been flyfishing was able to hook up on fish within minutes thanks to Bernie's straight forward easy to follow advice. Can't recommend them enough!
I’ve been on many guided fishing trips, but our trip with Harry was the best by far! He’s a kind and patient teacher, he explained what to do and why we were doing it that way. He clearly knows his stuff! We were on fish all day.We literally lost count of the number of fish we caught. Cannot recommend more highly!!
Had a great day today. We asked for some education and process to begin exploring fly fishing. Harry anchored several times and held a workshop with us to explain the basics. So helpful. We caught fish and learned more in a day about fly fishing than we ever could explain. Thanks so much. Wonderful day and anyone into fishing or the river should make the reservation. Calm cool and so much fun. Thanks from both of us!!! Jim Toomey. Steve Peltier.
I can't recommend Harry Desmond and Berkshire Rivers Fly Fishing enough. Harry sets the bar high for himself, his guides, and every trip. He works hard to ensure you have a great experience fishing. He has always treated me and my family with respect and has gone above and beyond to make each trip enjoyable. His knowledge, passion, and dedication to the the sport and community are superior. I always make a point to try to and schedule a trip with Harry when I am in town visiting family. Harry just make it a lot of fun!
On 1127/22, I was able to make it out on my second float trip with Harry. Every time i have gone, Harry has been a great resource with expert knowledge of all things Fly Fishing. Harry has definitely sparked a love for fly fishing with me and my dad. We have been able to catch fish from literally the first day we have ever been fly fishing I will certainly look to be going on another float trip in the spring. I would and have recommended this company to any fly fisherman, whether they are seasoned or the greenest angler.
Best fishing trip i've ever been on. Harry was an incredible teacher and is so knowledgable. I can't recommend going out with these guys enough. 10/10 would do it again.
Had a wonderful time. I never went fly fishing before and did the 1/2 day wading trip. Harry was a great guide and coach. I caught 2 brown trout! The river was beautiful and we were the only ones there. I would definitely recommend this company.
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!
