birthplace of american fly fishing
The Catskills received the label of the “Birthplace of American Fly Fishing” due to its rich history, filled with the traditions and innovations of fishermen over the years. Between the Beaver Kill and the Willowemoc, the Catskills offer some of the best fly fishing opportunities in the nation.
The popularity of fly fishing has created a big impact in our town. Livingston Manor is home to the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum, which is dedicated to preserving America’s fly fishing heritage, and to Dette Flies, the oldest, family-owned fly shop in the world. It is also where the Trout Parade takes place, which is a street fair that celebrates the community on the second Saturday in June every year.
Within just a ten minute drive is the neighboring town of Roscoe, NY. Appropriately labeled as Trout Town, USA, five of America’s top trout streams can be found here. It is also home to Baxter House Fly Fishing Outfitters, who are well known for their innovative fly patterns and experienced guides, and to our sister property, the Antrim Lodge.
