Cast & Blast opens 9/1

Upland game bird hunters and fly-fishing fans: 

Your favorite days are coming right up. Cast & Blast opens September 1. A morning afield with a great dog would be enough, but combine fly-fishing with wing shooting in one day to ensure that you’re challenged all day long. As the cool morning gives way to bright sun and blue skies and the dogs have worked off their morning excitement, it’s time for a lunch break. When you go back out, a change of gear and scenery as you head out for an afternoon of sight casting to hungry trout. A few days of this are heaven. Season runs September 1 through October–short, but very sweet. Call now to book your dates.

Get FREE 2-hour private training sessions with Brookside Gun Dogs’ Steve Nicholas for hunters who bring their own dogs for any wing shooting trips.
