Kids Fishing Trips

Got a kid itching to go fishing and be in the outdoors?

I’m looking to take some younger kids out fishing and fly fishing around Andover this summer. I have years of fishing knowledge, as well as experience teaching others how to fish. I am extremely responsible when with children, and am comfortable doing first-aid. The body of water, species, and gear will be catered to your child’s experience level, age, goals, and comfortability. I have gear, although your child is more than welcome to bring their own if they choose to do so. I am able to take kids entering first grade to ninth grade. The rates start at $15 an hour. By the end of the trip, your child will have plenty of fish pictures, a greater understanding and appreciation of the sport, as well as a huge smile. If your kid has some free time over the summer and is looking for a fun activity that gets them outside and learning about the natural world, reach out through the Contact page to schedule a trip.

We live in amazing region with great fishing opportunities. Whether your kid wants to fish jigs for big largemouth bass, catch monster sunfish on the fly, or target native chain pickerel with flukes, I can make it happen. I have an extensive knowledge of the waters around the area and will be able to suggest the best one for you based on the information you give. Or, choose the convenient option and let me travel to the pond or river closest to you. There are countless options, and your child is sure to have a blast with whatever they choose.
