Dear Friends of Weatherbys,
2017 will be our 16th season operating Weatherby’s, and one thing we can tell you is there is nothing routine about running a sporting camp in the Maine woods. We find challenges around every corner and everyday brings a new adventure. From marketing, maintenance, state regulation to staffing – fishing and hunting are the easy parts!
In July 2016, we were awarded the Best of Maine by DownEast Magazine for Maine sporting camps. This is an honor to be considered the best by such a respected publication, in an era when the idea of vacationing at traditional fishing and hunting lodges in Maine is declining overall. We are strong, thanks to our clients and continue to make needed improvements to our infrastructure and to our offerings, while maintaining our flexibility and a savvy approach to marketing and service.
In September we hosted a film crew from Facing Waves, a paddle sport show featuring Maine’s North Woods and our premiere paddling river – the St. Croix. The show was sponsored by Maine Tourism and Maine Woods Discovery, and we look forward to seeing the show air on ESPN and the Outdoor Channel this winter.
Most recently, an article featuring our Iceland fishing trips will be featured in The Angling Report, written by former fishing editor/writer for Outdoor Life Magazine, Jerry Gibbs. Highlights of the article will be not only the fishing opportunities that we offer, but also how we can put together quality, all inclusive fishing packages in Iceland for much less than you could ever imagine. Consider joining us this year!
