More about Trout Tales at Spillian: A Fish Fest & Feast

Whether you’re a beginner looking to find out more about fly fishing Catskill streams, or you’re one of the “charmed circle” of fly fishermen, we hope you’ll join us for Trout Tales at Spillian, the fourth annual hands-on day celebrating all things trout, and the launch of the 2018 Catskills Trout Tales Season. Try, test, taste, experience, explore…

We’ll have some of the Catskills’ greatest fly fishermen sharing the secrets of casting, fly-tying, reading streams, where to hike into legendary waters and secret fishing spots, cooking trout, the right gear, and more, culminated with a superb trout feast in the evening. (And trout stories. Of course. There must be fish stories. Some may even be true…)

If you’ve always wanted to explore trout fishing but didn’t know where to start, here’s your chance! And if you love all things trout and want to get a jump on newest cool gear, come on by.

This event is the center of a growing regional celebration of all things trout throughout the Catskills in the early spring, inviting visitors to experience the magic of the birthplace of American fly-fishing, co-produced by the Ashokan Pepacton Chapter of Trout Unlimited.

• Kids welcome, and free 15 and under for the afternoon (dinner separate)
• Bring your best fish tale and win best tale-teller of the evening
• Limited seating available at dinner, so make your reservations now
