: Guides on Martha's Vineyard?

Hey guys,

Can anyone recommend a good fly and spin guide on Martha's Vineyard?

I am looking for positive feedback from other Forum members because I want to take my wife on a guided trip with me while we are in the Vineyard on vacation. I need to be sure that we book a patient, courteous, friendly and accomodating guide. I want my wife to score on fly - spinning gear as a backup plan.

Anyone have any good feedback regarding guides on the Vineyard?

Thanks in advance,

I don't think you guys could do better than John Kollett and Sandra Demel of Buzzards Bay Flyfishing for what you described!

They are located in Vineyard Haven.

I'll second that recommendation. They're fine fishermen and good people too.

Husband and wife team will LOVE a shore guided charter with Ken Vanderlaske on the Vineyard for flyfishing from shore. Spent two guided trips with him-good fishing and good chat-Dinner included and fishing from shore via his 4x4 so you have no cost for the oversand permit. Booking Ken three years ago in June made a big difference in the quality of our fishing on the Vineyard. We learned so much from his experience of fishing the Vineyard.

Capt. Leslie Smith of Backlash Charters. She runs a 26' Regulator out of Edgartown and meets all your patient, family-friendly, instructive criteria.
