Capt. Kyle Schaefer, Guide & Owner

Kyle has forever been a lover of wild places.  His thirst for exploring local ecosystems has made fly fishing a natural pursuit, giving rhythm and structure to his time outside.  Fly fishing is Kyle's vehicle to the outdoors, new adventures, incredible observations and many new friends.  

Kyle grew up with saltwater in his veins.  He started fishing when he was just a boy in Cape Cod, the Chesapeake Bay, Maine and New Hampshire.  After graduating from UNH, Kyle migrated west to Steamboat Springs, Colorado where guiding trout fishing, managing ski shops and exploring the backcountry filled his time.  

Upon return to the east, Kyle settled into Kittery, Maine, dedicating himself to saltwater fly fishing once again.  Kyle has spent years of his professional career in Outdoor TV, managing production companies and working with fly fishing and outdoor brands on their marketing strategies. He has also built and sold a business of his own, called Tidal Roots, a specialty SUP brand.   

Kyle is a dedicated fly fishing guide, covering Northern Plum Island to Southern Maine.  He specializes in poling the flats and sight fishing for striped bass.  Kyle also has a passion for throwing big flies to the rocky coast, and fishing the beaches.  He routinely travels to fish saltwater locations in the Southeast, Gulf Coast, and Caribbean, bringing home valuable perspectives from other fisheries.   Kyle also offers hosted trips and other adventures.  Follow along here and reach out with any questions.
