NEW 2021 Fly Fish for Trout, Northern Pike, Striped bass, Smallmouth, False Albacore
Taconic Guide Service continues to be committed to ensuring the health and well-being of our clients and team members. We are carefully monitoring the rapidly evolving communications and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), government agencies, and state and local officials including the latest updates from the Vermont Department of Health https://www.healthvermont.gov/covid-19.
“With progressively diminished ‘stay at home’ ‘safer at home’ restrictions, all types of fishing will increase because it’s our passion. Agreed, a 9–ft. rod is the “ultimate social distancing yardstick” and that analogy should be exploited, however, a rod, used in that manner is only as good as the intent and expertise of the user. So how the user actually behaves when using the rod as a physical distancing tool is critical.”
Taconic Guide Service wants our clients to feel confident and comfortable that we are taking all precautions to ensure your safety and the safety of our team. Our boats are thoroughly washed with detergent between each trip and hand sanitizer is readily available. Whenever necessary we coat our equipment in EPA approved Clear Guard which is an ideal solution for preventing disease causing bacteria and the spread of skin to skin contact diseases. As many of you will be fishing with friends and clients that you may have not seen for a duration of time. It is important that you communicate in advance any symptoms of COVID-19, especially a high fever and cough.
“If you plan to rendezvous with a buddy, have a forthright ‘risk communication’ discussion before your trip. Discuss if anyone is experiencing cough, shortness of breath, fever (101.4 F or above) or feverish symptoms. SARS CoV-2 is age-discriminatory, folks 55 and older have a much higher risk for contracting the virus than folks 45 and younger and if you are over 65 and you contract COVID-19 the risk of death is 22 times higher than those 55 and younger.”
If you have any symptoms related to COVID-19 or its variant, we would rather you stay home and join us next time. Please contact us at (802)688-4304 for any concerns.
