Your Main Message

Hello everyone, welcome to Recon Fly Fishing. I am Ernest Demastus JR. Owner and Operator of Recon Fly Fishing LLC. I am a retired Army Cavalry Scout. I specialized in reconnaissance and security. That is where my business name is derived from. I have lived in Central PA for 5 years. I have been an avid angler for most my life. In the last 10 years have been hopelessly addicted to the fly. I love to travel and have had the opportunity to fish in Mexico, Chile, and Europe. However, I spend most my time now fishing the Limestones and Freestones of PA and New York. In addition, I take part in competitive fly fishing on Team Livin on The Fly.
As an Angler and Guide i think that one of the most important things I can do is ensure that the sport that I love has a chance to be carried on to future generations. As such I devote a significant amount of time to working with cold water conservation organizations. I am a board member for the John Kennedy Chapter of TU. In addition, I am member of the Little Juniata River Association. The next closest thing in my heart is helping Veterans. I am a Coordinator for Trout Unlimited Veterans Service Partnership. Where we use the healing aspects of fly fishing to help veterans cope and grow.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about me. Feel free reach out and message me with questions or to book a trip with Recon Fly Fishing.
