Fly Fishing in Maine and particularly the Moosehead Lake Region is a unique experience. The Maine Guide Fly Shop & Guide Service is a full service Orvis Dealer catering to the needs of the modern angler.

If you are just starting we have answers for all your questions. If you are a seasoned veteran we have everything to fill your gear list. You will find our staff extremely knowledgeable and eager to help you in any way we can. We have been “Serving the Serious Fisherman” for 35 years.


Our On-Line Mail Order Catalog boasts one of the best selection of flies anywhere, from beadhead nymphs, hard to find tandem trolling flies, casting streamers, traditional dries, drakes, and a lot more plus a great line of fly tying materials. We are your Maine connection for Orvis rods, which include the award winning Helios and Hydros rods plus their full line of reels, waders, boots, and gear.

While fly fishing in Maine you may want to spend some time with one of our Registered Maine Guides. We can’t say enough about our staff of guides. They have all been with us for years and know their stuff. Our guide service offers drift boat trips on the Kennebec & Penobscot Rivers for landlocked salmon, great bugging for very large smallmouth bass, fall camping trips and our Fly Fishing University where you can begin your fly fishing career or take you game to a new level.

Check out our Guide Service Videos from Maine and our winter Everglades Camping trips! You’ll drift with us down the East Outlet & West Branch or skip over salt water in a flats boat heading deep into Everglades National Park to explore a tropical world like no other.

April Selection of the Month

The Selection of the Month for April is Copper Johns. You’ll receive a dozen and a half in two sizes and four different colors. To the fish they may look like mayfly nymphs but let the trout and salmon use their imagination and they’ll eat’em all season long. Included are 2 – Size 12 & 2 – Size 14 in original Copper, Red, Chartreuse, & Green. All have proven themselves fish worthy across the country and these colors are our favorites for our region. Get one for yourself and one for your favorite fishing buddy.
