On AMC's Maine Lands there are dozens of remote ponds full of wild and native brook trout and Father's Day weekend it the perfect time to head out exploring and fishing. It all starts on Friday evening, after a hearty home cooked meal; the fishing fest begins with the evening spent fishing on Long Pond. Then on Saturday morning before breakfast the early risers will head back to Long Pond to catch something for breakfast. After breakfast participants will be shuttled to remote ponds and lead by fishing guides for a day on the water. Each participant will be given individual attention. Fishing guides will be around all day to give instruction, help with fly selection, and work with the angler on any specific problems. All participants will get a box of flies that are known for attracting brook trout in the area. It will be a Father's Day weekend that you will always remember. Activity level: Moderate. Minimum age is 9. All participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied with a parent or guardian. All participants will need to purchase at least a two day Maine fishing license and bring a fishing rod, reel, line, leader, and an assortment of flies. Fly Rods can be rented at for a fee of $25 for the program. Rates include lodging, meals, guided activities and instruction, and a box of flies from the Maine Guide Fly Shop. Higher rates apply for private cabins.
