We achieve this by not only being a guide, but also a teacher. We can guarantee you will leave the day with a better and broader understanding of this beautiful sport. We specialize in fresh water creeks and streams for trout and salmon and also salt water for Striped Bass, Albacore, Bluefish and Bonito.
We guide both in Maine and Martha’s Vineyard, MA. Every time you fish with us it will be more than just a guided trip, it will be a lifetime experience.
About Abbie Schuster
Owner, Guide, Yoga Instructor
Fly fishing is something I have done my entire life that is why the word Kismet spoke to me when naming this business. Owning and running an outfitter is my destiny. My passion and where my knowledge lies is fly fishing. I have always been in the fly fishing industry and I always knew that owning an outfitter was my fate and what I was suppose to do with my life. All I want is my clients to find their destiny on the water.
I was born in raised in New England and grew up minutes from the Farmington River in Connecticut, which provided me the opportunity to gain knowledge and passion for this sport. I also spent many years fishing the rivers and small creeks of Maine and New Hampshire along with Long Island Sound and Martha’s Vineyard for Stripped Bass, Albies, Bonita and Bluefish.
I attended University of Montana, which only fueled my fly fishing addiction, so it was a natural choice for me to become a fly fishing guide. In 2011 after completing Sweetwater Guide School I started guiding in Montana and since then have not looked back. I have guided in Washington and Alaska and have fished many waters down in Mexico and Andros Island, Bahamas.
Fly fishing is my true passion. To me there is nothing better than giving the gift of fly fishing to a client. Every trip will be an opportunity to not only catch fish, but expand and grow your knowledge. My goal is to have every client leave with a smile, stronger passion for fly fishing and conservation and a greater understanding about this sport.
