Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio provided a special backdrop for a lifelong pursuit of being outdoors. Fishing came to me as I took my first steps and Fly Fishing not long after at the age of 7. The last 30 years have led me around the country chasing every fish that swims in freshwater. Fly Fishing became my preferred method as I began to appreciate my time on the water more with each passing year. Building off of quality time spent outdoors, hunting quickly became a way of life as well. After guiding around the country, the year-round opportunities that exist locally brought me back to Ohio where my pursuit began. In 2017, John Fabian Fly Fishing was started. Growing a team of great anglers and developing the fisheries of Ohio was the goal and we achieved it!
New for 2022, I am proud to announce the opening of Covered Bridge Outfitters & Lodge located in Conneaut, Ohio. Come spend a day on the water or in the woods with us and make some truly great memories!
