Vermont Fly Fishing

We post a lot of videos from exotic destinations around the country and the world, but it’s always great to see something local. Here’s a sweet little edit from videographer Connor Winton, who followed a couple of friends on a day of fishing for rainbow trout right here in the 802. The vibe of the video captures the season and the pace of a day on an in-town stream. It’s super New Englandy.

  1. i loved the rocky brook. It reminded me of my youth when I fished brooks near my Connecticut home…a lot different than the limestoners I now fish in south- central Pennsylvania. I’ll be watching more videos on The Tug.

  2. Home, ..Born and Raised in New England and wicked proud of it. This were I cut my teeth in the fly fishing world (not that I’m an expert but learning to fish here is a challenge unlike else where), I met Harry from Berkshire Rivers Fly Fishing on a small creek in October outside Great Barrington MA. Having found a rod in an yard sale and been a saltwater fisher all my life, I figured fly fishing would fit me better during my time traveling the Rockies. BLAH BLAH BLAH anyway, learning to fish where so few fish live and fishing through the winter of the Berkshires ( CT, MA,VT) is away to commit to the life. Days of not seeing a fish, moments of pure joy when feeling a tug, heart break when knots failed or the stick fish was pulled in. But the most rewarding aspect of fishing here is captured in this video, not so much how many fish are produced that day but who you spent your time with and what your learned that day. Harry is who kept me motivated and stoked to go fish. It didn’t matter if I caught a 6″ brookie or my fish good size brown he kept me stoked on the method and learning over the production. I’m thankful for all his wisdom and time he has passed on to me. The whole vibe about this vibe reminds me of the time spent there.

  3. I was in Manchester Center last summer and was so bummed that I couldn’t flyfish while I was up there! GAH! I vow to go back there, visit Orvis HQ and have a blast fishing the beautiful waters up there! It would be even better on a new Helios Rod! Big Hopes!!!

  4. I love VT = especially a little town called Jamaica. Enjoyed the video – and would enjoy a new Helios rod even more!

  5. Can’t wait for the day I can move up there for some prime fly fishing. New Jersey will get me by until then though. nice vid, really enjoying the vibes.

  6. I miss VT! I used to live there and miss all the great waters, New England charm, and especially the down to earth people!

  7. It’s always great to see shots of home! Fished all my life and lived here in Vermont for 38 years and have fished the whole time – lake, river, stream and pond – great opportunities everywhere.

  8. I first learned to tie flies in Vermont when I was just a little kid, and although I’ve fished a lot of other places since I will always love fishing there.

  9. Ive been fishing in New England for a while, but am new to the Vermont scene with a hope to be a guide here in the future. Really cool video! love seeing people get after those trout!

  10. Love seeing Vermont get a little love on the internet, theres a gnarly fly fishing community up here that needs a larger voice in the media, and a bunch of anglers (myself included) that could put a free helios 2 to good work. (sidenote: my birthday is the day before the contest winner is announced, and a great rod that id never be able to afford otherwise would make a great present for a hometown angler, just saying.)
