Chris Stiles

Chris Stiles

Chris Stiles owns the Fish With A Fly forum and Adkflyfishing Adventures, a guide service to the eastern Adirondacks. His home as child was a mile from the legendary Battenkill River. He caught his first trout there when he was seven years old. He cast his first fly rod there when he was sixteen. A natural progression to becoming a fishing guide was growing up in “Orvis Country” and a family heritage of fishing.

Chris’ local rivers include the Schroon, Ausable, Battenkill, Boreas and Saranac where he is constantly fine tuning long standing and experimental fly patterns to cater to the local trout population. He likes to venture west to the Ontario tributaries for Chinook, Coho & Steelhead. He has even been seen on the South Bay of Lake Champlain fighting Long Nose Gar on the fly rod.
