"Guide House: Montauk " Starts Sunday on ESPN

April 25, 2006 By: Marshall Cutchin

If the show is anywhere near as good as the advanced billing, it will keep a lot of anglers home on Sundays this spring. Here’s what Brendan McCarthy, one of the featured guides sent us: “Created by Capt. Brendan McCarthy and Jason Puris, the series chronicles the day to day life of 5 fly-fishing guides, living under the same roof, during the ‘Fall Run’ off Montauk Point. Besides great fishing for Striped Bass, Bluefish and False Albacore with their clients, the guides also sit down with some well-known fly tyers, cook with some famous chefs, chat and fish with people like Ted Jurasik of Tibor reels and even participate in a RedBone Tournament. The Chefs include the likes of Tom Collicio of Bravo’s Top Chef, Kerry Heffernan of 11 Madison Park-NYC and Colin Ambrose of Estia’s Little Kitchen-Sag Harbor NY. Fly Tyers like Tim Borski and Dave Skok participate and Howell Raines and Peter Kaminsky, writer of The Moon Pulled up an Acre of Bass, come and fish as well. Gretta Gaines, Snowboarder, Singer/Songwriter and ESPN personality even sings a few songs for the cast back at the ‘Guide House.'”
