Let my 20 plus years of guiding experience provide you with a fun, safe and productive day on the water. Whether it’s an important family day, a mental health day away from the office or just a day out fishing, I strive to make it happen to the best of my ability.

Erik began his passion for fly fishing at an early age fishing for trophy striped bass with his father on Cape Cod. His love of the sport and the outdoors brought him inland to the fabled trout waters of the Catskills and Andirondacks, where he honed his freshwater fly fishing skills.

Phil Gleason Fly Fishing Testimonial

“When I hire a guide I look for someone who’s a great fisherman, a hard worker, a patient teacher, and a good person with whom to spend a day on the water. I’ve fished with many guides, and know firsthand that these qualities don’t always coincide, but Chris has them all, in spades, which is why I keep returning to the Deerfield area and bringing my fishing buddies. It’s a great under the radar fishery and no one knows how to fish it better than Chris.”

David Sossen Fly Fishing Testimonial

“I’ve been fishing with Chris on the Deerfield and nearby rivers, and in the salt, for at least five years.  He always puts us on the fish no matter the conditions which can be quite variable.  We have fished in downpours, floods and heatwaves.  He is also a good and very patient teacher of all the techniques involved in flyfishing.  And he is a great guy to spend a day on the water with. ”

David Sossen

“Fishing with Chris Jackson is always fun. I try to get out to western MA or Vermont couple of times a year to experience the many rivers that are on Chris’ radar… as well as his enthusiasm about fly fishing. On our first trip together a few years ago I drove home asking myself, “Why fly to Montana when the size and number of browns and rainbows – even a big tiger trout – that day more than equaled my best day out west.” Chris keeps each day with him hopping – knowing when to swing a streamer, put out the nymph rod, work a wet fly, or pound up fish on a dry. ”
