Welcome to Catskill Mountain Angler

Fly Fishing Guiding and Instruction in the Catskill Tradition with Mark Loete

These words were written by iconic fly fisherman and author Preston Jennings in 1935, in his landmark "Book of Trout Flies." His fishing beat? The cradle of American fly fishing — the freestone streams of New York's Catskill Mountains. The Catskill Angler fishes these same waters today — the same captivating waters fished by Mark Twain, Babe Ruth, Herbert Hoover, and Jimmy Carter, to drop a few names. But you don't have to be a famous personage to catch a wild trout in these historic waters. You can call Catskill Mountain Angler, and let Mark Loete bring his twenty years of Catskill flyfishing experience to bear on this sporting challenge. We can introduce a new fly fisherman to the necessary basic skills, and we can ensure that an experienced flyrodder will be maximizing his or her time on our streams. Whatever your skill and experience level, you will find a knowledgeable, responsive teacher who will be focused on improving your game and hooking you up with the object of your affection.
