Keystone Anglers Guide Service was founded by Scott Grassi. Scott grew up in Central Pa fishing for Brook Trout in the small mountain streams around the State College area. He was introduced to the sport of fly fishing from a close friend and local Fly fishing guide and the rest is history. He is also the father of three boys who are accomplished fly fisherman in their own right. Scott started the guide service as a way to share his love and passion of fly fishing with others looking for the experience. He will guide our Steelhead clients in the Spring and Fall before heading to Central Pa to chase Wild Trout.
The newest edition to Keystone Anglers Guide Service is Anthony Nicoletta. Anthony has been fishing the streams of Pennsylvania since he was old enough to hold a rod. He refined his craft on the streams of Eastern PA and then decided it was time for a change. Since he relocated to Erie PA, he has taken the steelhead scene by storm. You can find him on an Erie tributary just about any time of year fishing for steelhead, brown trout, smallmouth bass, and even pink salmon. Anthony completed a lifelong goal by becoming a guide, and now he is ready to share his knowledge with you!
Ryan Rachiele lives in "God's Country" in North Central Pa with his long time girlfriend and two beautiful children. Ryan has mastered the art of catching really BIG Wild Brown Trout on small small mountain streams with streamers. There can be the biggest hatch of Mayflies coming off and Ryan will continue throwing big meaty flies for just that one big lunker fish that will eat....Thus the name "Streamer Junkie" We are really excited to have Ryan in the family. He has so much great knowledge to share with our clients and he's going to be a huge asset to our business.
