Take off in the morning and arrive at your first fishing spot as the sun rises. Stop for lunch in a riverside cafe and get right back to the lake an hour later. Or bring a picnic lunch to enjoy on one of the Thousand Islands.

Your guide is Robert Coolahan, a man with a wealth of knowledge about fishing and great stories about the 1000 Islands. He is committed to providing you with a quality fishing vacation, whether you go for a day or a week.

As you fish, Rob will work with you on your technique and provide as much – or as little – guidance as you want. He brings top-notch equipment and knows where the best places are to put it in the water. Every time he takes you out, you can expect to have a fishing trip to tell tales about back home.
