Our destination is the Maine North Woods with Nate Tower, owner of Heritage Waters Guide Service.  If you’re looking for an off-the-grid, unpressured fly-fishing experience, then the Maine North Woods is it.  Encompassing over 3.5 million acres, these unspoiled waters are home to healthy, intact populations of wild and hungry native Brook trout and salmon.

After a life-changing trip to Montana as a teenager and a basketball coach who taught him to cast, Nate knew he was destined to make fly fishing his life’s passion.  Today, Nate runs his guiding business and gives us a rundown of the area, how to scope out the best ponds, strategies, and tactics for big Brookies, why water temps, wind, and structure are so important, his top confidence fly patterns, and how to spot those all-important cold springs.   So pack your satellite phone and gas up the truck because we’re going off the grid to the Maine North Woods.

With host, Steve Haigh
