Since Jim "Coz" Costolnick began his guiding career on the Upper Delaware he has
logged tens of thousands of hours guiding this river system. Coz was the original
a host of ESPN's "In Search of Fly Water" and traveled the globe to bring the world
of fly fishing into the living rooms of millions. Coz is currently a fly fishing
field staff advisor for the Pennsylvania Outdoor Life television series. Coz is
a certified casting instructor and Pro Staff advisor for the Clacka Craft Boat Company.
Coz's love of sharing his secrets and techniques is what makes him a highly sought
after teacher, speaker and personality in the fly fishing industry. When he's not
on the water he can usually be found at his fly shop, Border Waters in Hancock, NY.
Coz also hosts our annual Steelhead Camp on the Great Lakes tributaries. His dedication
to the river is displayed through his work on the board of directors of Friends of
the Upper Delaware River.
On occasion we may use an independent guide on a daily basis. The small network
of guides we use are talented fishermen who will work hard to make your day a success.
We won't put you with just anyone. If there is no one available we will tell you
that. Your memorable experience demands it, our pride won't allow it and our reputation
depends on it.
