My first time is something I will never forget. I was in my 20's and this was totally new to me. I wanted to try it and wanted it bad. I know it was late in life for my first experience but it is just how it worked out. It was early on a dark and cold April morning. I...

Here are a few pics from my trip to a little tributary of the Clark Fork. The smaller fish were taking big foam bugs, while the big boys were hunkered down on bottom because of the bright sunlight.

Recent rains caused the latest Smith River trip to get cancelled. As part of 'PLAN B' we did a two day float down another river.

About Kevin McKay and Maine Fly Fish
My name is Kevin McKay and I became a Master Maine Guide in 2003. But before that I started www.maineflyfish.com, one of the largest fly fishing web sites on the east coast. It is dedicated to helping everyone who is new and experienced, to bring out their best when it comes to fly fishing. So it was only natural I became a guide and I haven't looked back.
