Lead Backpacking Guide

Engaged in backpacking and campcraft from a young age, Greg grew up in rural Western Massachusetts, which provided a geographical home base from which to explore all of the Northeastern woodlands. Despite being a 13 year resident of Brooklyn, he has spent much of his free time on solo trips in the backcountry. Greg realized some time ago that he wanted to share the experience of being immersed in nature as a refreshing break from being plugged in.

Lead Fly Fishing Guide

An avid fly fisherman for over 30 years, Owen has fished all over the world, from Ireland to Oregon, Belize to Montana, and countless points in between.  And while he is originally from the West Coast, he has called the trout streams of the Catskills his home water for the last 15 of those years.  He is just as passionate about seeing the light in someone's eye when they hook their first brook trout on a dry fly as he is about hunting wild Delaware rainbows.
