Mike De Rosa
After safety comes teaching. Techniques, tactics, and information about the various fish and fisheries, are the full responsibility of a guide. After 25 years of training, research and on the water experience, Mike can teach both one-handed and two-handed rod casting and techniques. He’s fully equipped to dead-drift, indicator fish or swing, based on current river conditions. Your preference!
Mike is a graduate of the Wulff School of Fly Fishing and Fly Casting Instructors Course. Along with being the River Guide Concierge for the Tailwater Lodge, he is the Head Guide for Corporate Events at the Douglaston Salmon Run. He has fly fished New York, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, Texas, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Maine, and parts of Canada.
His focus, along with the entire Zero Limit Adventures Team, is that a day with us is your day! Mike practices catch and release and knows you will find his time on the water along with his desire to serve you, will help create the magic of a fly fishing adventure of a lifetime.
Matt De Rosa
Being a young angler on the water brings a level of energy that cannot be found in others. While on active duty in the Military, he still finds opportunities to share his passion with his clients. There is no better feeling to him than tying an interesting fly and then catching a fish on it the next morning. He practices catch and release in hopes of catching “that fish” another day. He strives for all anglers to do the same. Conservation of the wildlife is very important to him. If you love being around youth, energy and experience, you’ll find Matt’s energy contagious.
Call him “Doc”.
Doc started flyfishing when the universe wanted him to. He found himself in Jackson Hole with bum fingers to end his climbing career and the grandfathers of Western fly fishing handing him a rod.
Amongst The Who’s Who he found teachers and advice, fishing techniques and guiding strategies which he carries with him to this day. He has guided anglers of all abilities in Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, New Hampshire, New York and his native Vermont.
Doc has taught fly tying for a decade, been a student of Joan Wulff’s Casting Instructor course, destroyed countless boots over countless miles and slept in his truck too many times to continue the equilibrium of teacher and student.
Doc practices catch and release fishing and the art of having a blast on the river.
Call him “Rocky”.
Rocky began fishing the Salmon River in the early 90’s after retiring as a Regular Army Officer. He has been employed by the DSR since 1999, except for a 5 year Army recall with 27 months in Iraq. Rocky began guiding DSR Lodge Guests in ’08 and has since been continuously on the Salmon River. He has been building rods, fly tying and lure making since the mid-50s.
Since receiving a Guide’s License, Rocky has been continuously researching the fish and fishery and has a well-developed presentation on “The History of the Landlocked Atlantic Salmon; It’s Extirpation and Recovery”. He has presented before TU Chapters, other fishing clubs and Historical Societies throughout the Northeast.
Rocky provides first class switch rod equipment and light spinning tackle and will spend the time to teach you the fundamentals. His focus is to provide you with the skills and confidence so that you don’t need his services in the future.
Bruce lives by the motto “when a guide is happy, the client is happy.” His key to a good day on the water is fulfilling a client’s expectations; whether it is patient instruction for the fly fishing newbie getting an experienced fisher into trophy fish. Fishing is all about the experience; whether it’s landing that big trout or the riverside conversation. Stream safety is part of this experience as well. Fly fishing enthusiasts are the stewards of our rivers and streams and Bruce lives and breathes this on every trip to the river.
