Maine Outdoors goes International

August 27, 2014

 

By Don Kleiner

Argy took off yesterday for a family wedding in Greece. She took a load of Maine Outdoors retail items with her; water bottles, natural canvas hats and tee shirts. As you can see a significant portion of her suitcase is dedicated to gifts for the relatives. I know not really international trade.

What Maine Outdoors is all about!

August 25, 2014

 

By Don Kleiner

Over last few weeks I have spent time with many families and groups of friends. I help them enjoy the outdoors and experience places and things that they could not on their own. During that time I have had the privilege of seeing five parties made up of three generations.

Loons up close

August 24, 2014

 

By Don Kleiner

Every autumn as the loons gather on the ponds with the clearest water and best fishing they seem to lose their fear of boats. This year has been marked by loons coming very close to the boat while I have been fishing with clients. We have seen quite a few swimming nearby even under the boat in shallow water.

The Season is Changing

August 19, 2014

 

By Don Kleiner

The season changed this week autumn is here for sure, cooler nights, crystal clear skies and highs around seventy degrees. Many folks are realizing that summer is nearly over and I have had a number of last minute reservations for family fishing trips. Some families are rushing to squeeze in just one more outdoor adventure for the season.

A Fish Story

August 12, 2014

 

By Don Kleiner

I usually do not tell fish stories, well OK not online anyway. This story is so exceptional I have to share. I spent the last two days with a father and son from Boston, repeat clients. They fish with flies and cast well enough that I can use my bigger streamers.  Our first day together brought several nice fish to the boat including the one in the picture. Not bad but nothing exceptional.

Unusual wildlife sightings

August 05, 2014

 

By Don Kleiner

July and August are always the busiest part of my season, most days have me on the water somewhere. All of that time coming and going or just being on the water gets me to see lots of unusual sights. This afternoon I was fishing along the shore of Megunticook Lake in Camden with clients and there on the shore were two fawns (still with spots) feeding as if we simply did not exist. Last week clients and I saw a deer in the water feeding much as a moose does on a different part of the lake.

Why licenses?

August 01, 2014

 

By Don Kleiner

It came up again yesterday, why do you include licenses in the price of the fishing trip and why do you even bother to fill them out. The second part usually goes “I have been coming to Maine for years and never even seen a game warden”.

Rewarding

July 30, 2014

 

By Don Kleiner

One of the most rewarding parts of my life as a guide is the repeat clients I see. Some I see every year for a trip or two or others like this party after a gap of 20 or more years. Amazing that they remember and want to repeat an experience from long ago like this canoe trip with family and friends.

The memories made outdoors are good and are worth recreating!

Mid summer report

July 28, 2014

 

By Don Kleiner

As some of you know Brynna has helped out in the office and doing various chores here at Maine Outdoors for the last three summers. I asked her for her perspective on this summer and here are her thoughts.

These past couple weeks have been hot and humid, the type of weather that makes it hard to want to do anything besides drink a glass of ice tea and take a nap – or get out on the water.

Variety!

July 24, 2014

 

By Don Kleiner

An interesting week here, fishing on fresh and saltwater. Stripers, mackerel, bass and even a few pickerel in the mix. I enjoy showing all of my clients parts of the area that they would never see on their own and enjoying being outdoors with their friends and family.
