We specialize in saltwater for striped bass, false albacore, bluefish and bonito. We also guide fresh water creeks and streams for trout and salmon. We guide in Martha’s Vineyard & Maine and various locations in New England. Every time you fish with us it will be more than just a guided trip, it will be a lifetime experience.
Kismet outfitters offers guided fly fishing trips, schools, hosted travel, corporate events and casting clinics for both beginner and seasoned anglers alike. Our goal is to make each trip unforgettable. We achieve this by not only guiding, but teaching. We can guarantee you will leave the day with a better and broader understanding of this beautiful sport.
We are very happy to call the plentiful waters of Martha's Vineyard our home! The Vineyard has spectacular fishing opportunities. The vineyard is home to world class flats fishing and also surrounded by excellent tidal rips and inlets that make for great fishing by boat or walk and wade.

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. I was born and raised in New England and grew up fishing these waters, which provided me the opportunity to gain knowledge and passion for this sport. I learned to fish on Martha's Vineyard when I was young and also spent many years fishing the rivers and small creeks of Maine, Connecticut and New Hampshire.
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 waters abroad. 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 life long memories, a stronger passion for fly fishing and conservation and a greater understanding about this sport.
