Since 1989, the philosophy of The Feathered Hook has been simple: to help every person who comes to fly fish central Pennsylvania's streams to achieve their goals, catch more fish, and enjoy themselves all the more. We specialize in wild trout that are stream bred and raised. Our guiding includes both public and private water experiences. The Feathered Hook is centrally located to fly fish brown trout and brookies on the world-class limestone streams of Pennsylvania, including Penns Creek, Elk Creek, Pine Creek, Big Fishing Creek, and Spring Creek.
Located in the heart of Northern Amish country on the banks of Penns Creek, The Feathered Hook is a fly fisher's inn. We provide a tying area, fly fishing literature to read and an attached shop to meet your fly and tackle needs. Most importantly, we provide an atmosphere that will allow you to relax, enjoy yourself and forget about the rest of the world.
In the tiny Appalachian town of Coburn, Pennsylvania, life occurs at a different pace. Take your time and take it easy: the only rush should be to get to the stream. Look forward to seeing old friends and making some new ones.
The Green Drakes are just getting started way down stream around Millmont.
It is Just Starting for sure and the creek is in the best shape it’s been in for awhile.
Penns is running 733CFS and 3.13ft. Color is green and the bugs and fish seem to be ready to go.
