An American Fly Fishing Historic Estate The story of this area reads something like a Who’s Who of American Fly Fishing. The sport began and techniques refined on these waters. Of all the Catskill streams, most would argue that the small, wild and unique character of the Neversink River fishery is superior to them all. On this very stretch of water Edward Ringwood Hewitt himself fished and experimented on the private, peaceful oasis of gin clear water. Hewitt, George La Branche, and Theodore Gordon were all at home on this stretch of water. Numerous books and stories were written about these pioneers fishing this water and how their experiences here profoundly impacted the fly fishing and American cultures. The River and Grounds Today, this remarkable, private oasis is available for those that wish to share in the rich history and continue the epic legacy on what can only be considered a definitive sportsman’s paradise. It’s a simple fact that this stretch of the Neversink is the best of the best in terms of wild trout and land locked salmon fishing, with a setting that rivals anything in the country and provides the feeling that you are thousands of miles from the nearest human. The turquoise blue deep pools and clear long runs of the river cannot be described in words but are the centerpiece of every angler’s dreams. Located within 660+ acres, nearly three quarters of a mile of the river is entirely private, and entirely yours. The terrain ranges from steep and rocky to level, flat, and tillable soil where the family used to grow corn. Tall whispering white pines and large majestic oak trees are plentiful. The abundant deer and ruffed grouse sign in the private apple orchard reinforce the fact that this place is pure paradise. As you approach the series of spring-fed ponds you can hear the green frogs splash in retreat, warblers fly off into the forest and it’s all accompanied by the babbling Neversink in the background.
