Hi, I'm Bill Nolan, I am a veteran owned fly fishing guide service based out of Lancaster, PA.  I grew up an avid spin fisherman in Lancaster. In my 20's, I lost the love and desire to fish. It wasn't until some years later, on a trip to Salmon River, New York, that I picked up a fly rod and the obsession began. I believe strongly in volunteering, and have run the Veterans Service Partnership through Donegal Trout Unlimited since 2016. I am a graduate of the Wulff School of Fishing  and Sweetwater Guide School. I am passionate about fly fishing and the outdoors. I look forward to sharing my passion for fly fishing with you. As part of my commitment to conservation, 5% of my yearly guiding income will be donated to The Lancaster Conservancy and 5% to Donegal Trout Unlimited. I support both of these groups, and encourage you to do the same. I've fly fished  in Lancaster, and all surrounding counties. I look forward to sharing these waters with you.
