Paul Starring has a love of the outdoors, but fly fishing is his favorite pastime. Paul grew up in Littleton, NH area where he lives with his wife and three daughters. He spent a lot of his childhood spin fishing for bass, perch, and pike, but when given a fly rod in his teens he fell in love with fly fishing. His new hobby led him to explore the waters around his hometown and the rest of the North Country.
As a Licensed NH Fishing Guide and a Registered Maine Guide, Paul has had the opportunity to teach others the excitement of fly fishing and show them the beauty of the North Country.
“Fly fishing isn’t just about catching fish. It’s about experiencing nature up close, challenging yourself, making friends, and sharing stories”!
When not fishing, Paul spends his time in his vegetable garden and enjoying time with his family.  He also enjoys hunting, hiking, canoeing, and snowshoeing. If you ask him about some of the things he has on his “bucket list”, most of them will be places he wants to fish, but to him, nothing compares to New Hampshire.
“I’m blessed to call such a beautiful place home and spend so much time enjoying it!”

Thought I would share some pictures of my most recent trip. This was my first time in Pittsburg and staying at Lopstick. I had a great time and will definitely be coming back soon! Thank you for such a great trip and thanks to our guide Paul! We did a1/2 day wade in the fly fishing only zone above Lake Francis.It was my first time ever fly fishing and he taught me all the basics and I was able to catch my first fish with his help.  -@Morgshu
