I have been fly fishing for over thirty five years and S.B.O. has been in
business since 1999. I pride myself on being one of the best "Dry Fly"
fishing guide you will find in Pennsylvania. It does not matter if you are a
novice or experienced fly fisherman, I offer a guided trip that will increase
your understanding and skill level. If you want to learn how to "match the
hatch", understand the feeding pattern, identifying the hatch, type of rise,
where and how to cast, you have found the right guide. Don't get me wrong,
nymphing is required and a very productive way of catching trout. But
nothing thrills me more then seeing an 18 inch brown trout working the
surface and trying to fool him. As I call it "let's go hunt heads and
                                      Catch A Memory!" SM

Pike and Muskie
Fly Fishing
Taylor, a fisherman his whole life, became a fly fishing addict
during his days at State College. That is where he honed his
fishing skills for wild trout on Spring, Penns, Big Fishing and
Little Juniata. Experienced in all facets of fly fishing, he
focuses much of his time studying the modern techniques of
nymph fishing. He also pursues Muskie, Smallmouth, Carp and
Stripers on the fly. Growing up in the Oley Valley he has fished
many of the Class A creeks in Berks County. As you can see by
the photo he like to hunt the large browns that can be found in
small streams. Taylor is an accomplished fly tier of nymphs,
dries and streamers, using his own patterns to fool selective
trout that are found in Pennsylvania. He will be available for
guiding and teaching in SEPA and Central PA, along with leading
Destination Trips in PA and outside the state.
We are proud to be associated
