Another great day on the water with Cap'n Avery. Perfect flyfishing conditions and way to end the season on the water. Many birds and good size fish. Avery provides all the equipment and flies you will need. It's so nice to hop on the boat and just focus on the fish and incredible location. Favorite fishing trip!

What a quick and easy trip -- no big ride out to the fishing spots. We were casting within 5 minutes into the trip and hooking up within 10-15. At one point it almost got silly with a fish or at least multiple strikes per cast. (That point did not last forever, however!) Avery brings both fly rods in multiple weights and some spinning gear, either for when your arm gets tired or if you want to get further out. We'd move from spot to spot, drift, re-drift and sometimes re-re-drift the better runs. Avery was also great to talk to throughout the trip whether it was chatting in general or giving tips on casting. Overall, a great trip -- and so fast and easy. Two seconds onto the boat, drive out, get fishing, drift around, move again, and then eventually power back in (her boat can move when she wants it to). We caught so many fish I lost count.

What a wonderful fly fishing adventure! Capt Avery sure knows these waters and the fish. Following her precise instructions, it certainly increased my hookset rate. Even if you don't fish, you'll learn so much about this amazing fishery, the history, and it's unique topography. I caught/released plenty of striped bass and my wife just enjoyed the beauty of the Barnstable Harbor. We are ready to do it again!

We went out with Captain Avery, who was a very kind and effective guide. We hooked into a school of striped bass the first hour of our trip. The fish struck hard and often, and they were a blast to reel in. While we had much less luck as the morning went along, that first hour was worth the trip. We mostly used light tackle as opposed to fly poles, but that did not bother us because the fish were just as fun on light tackle. If you’ve never experienced catching stripers, you should check out Salty Fly!

Jason, Thanks for your review! Yes, the first hour was certainly the most productive hour of the trip. I'll have to remind those fish that they are supposed to stay at work for the entire duration of the trip. :) Come back again next year! avery

Had a blast searching for birds to identify exploding Striper on the surface and sight fishing for them on the flats. We were amateurs but Captain Avery made us feel like experts. Very patient and full of knowledge. We are already booked again for next year!

I've been out fishing with Avery a couple of times, and it's always been great. I usually go with my son in July and we try to catch a few stripers. I like to use the fly rod and my son spin-casts. Avery does a great job putting us right on the fish. Her knowledge of the area and the tides is second to none. We always catch fish and we always have fun - that's why I keep hiring her to take us out. I highly recommend Avery.

I have fished with Salty Fly Cape Cod for a few years and the experience is always the best. Captain Avery is so enjoyable to be with and such a pro. You can not go wrong with this choice!

Avery weathered a long morning with me, my son, and my nephew. Guiding an eight year old and a twelve year old at the same time is a feat and Avery was more than up to the task. Everybody caught fish which made the morning an easy one in no small part because Avery knew exactly how to put us on them during one of the slower times of the year. But more importantly, she knew the water area and history and shared her knowledge and enjoyment with us all. She even took some time out to give some fly casting instruction to the children (we spent the day on spin tackle for obvious practical reasons). If you want to enjoy the gentle beauty and quiet of Cape Cod and catch fish at the same time ...

Fishing with Captain Avery is an experience not to be missed! If you are an avid fisherman or even just a beginner, Avery's ability to guide is the stuff local lore is made of. A four hour charter aboard the good ship 'Gravy' with Avery at the helm takes you deep into the wonder of Barnstable harbor; a natural water landscape with incredible history and of course fabulous fish. The water is awesome, the company and conversation coupled with Avery's knowledge and ability to get you on fish is unique and unparalleled in these local waters. Just Go!!
