Seth Boynick - Farmington River Trading Co
Seth Boynick grew up fishing the Farmington River, Connecticut's most viable trout river and one of the finest tailwaters in New England. He has witnesses the river's improvement since he began to fish it extensively in the 1960s. Seth guides using his drift boats on the Farmington throughout the season for trout, and during the springtime on the Connecticut River for striped bass. Basic Instruction, casting lessons and wade fishing are also offered..
Seth owns one of the only guide services using drift boats on the Farmington, employing either his 15’ Clackacraft or 14’ inflatable depending on water conditions. He takes pleasure in introducing even veteran fly anglers to fishing from a drift boat which allows access to lesser known waters which are otherwise difficult to fish. Some of these sections have incredible fish densities as well as the largest trout on the Farmington. Seth's clients often encounter trout in the 18 to 20" range and larger. It not unusual to see deer. eagles, beavers, bear and mink while on a float.
On Long Island Sound. he fishes from a 24' Boston Whaler with twin 200’S designed to get there and back safely, concentrating on fly rod Stripers, Bluefish, and the magnificent False Albacore.
