Harry Desmond, owner/founder and head guide of Berkshire River Fly Fishing™ grew up fishing and exploring the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts, so he is extremely familiar to the terrain, the waters and the migrations that take place throughout the year. Get to know Harry is your key to amazing days out in such great parts of New England.
Harry graduated from Sweetwater Fly Fishing Guide School and has guided many waters in Montana, Wyoming, Idaho and Oregon for more than a decade. He also continues guiding outside of the Berkshires with Lillard Fly Fishing Expeditions, which is an outdoor adventure education company specializing in wilderness fly fishing camps for teens. During his time out with the kids Harry teaches them not only about many aspects of fly fishing, but respecting the outdoors and others as well.
Now, 20+ years into his fly fishing career, Harry enjoys spending 150+ days a year on the water guiding and fishing both float and wading trips. He loves chasing all species, including; trout, steelhead, bass, carp and even stripers, but his favorite species to target is pike. The thrill of tossing big flies at big toothy fish like pike gets the adrenaline flowing and makes for amazing days out that one will remember forever.
Remember Harry if you’re ever looking to fish the picturesque mountains and northeast waters of the Berkshires. If you’re traveling from afar Harry could assist you with some lodging accommodations as well as spa, shopping or other outdoor activities for friends or spouses who join you but might opt not to fish.
