CASCO BAY – Maine Professional Guides are struggling right now with the required 14 day quarantine for visitors from outside New Hampshire and Vermont. Even in a down year for the business, the Gorham boys tennis coach is living his dream this summer by opening his own guide service.
Aaron Landry, the Gorham boys team head coach, who is also a biology teacher at the high school, has opened his boat to fishing trips in southern Maine. The charter service is called “Rock and Sand.”
It’s been an up and down few months for Landry, due to COVID-19 restrictions. His Rams boys tennis team lost out on the 2020 season after schools were closed as a precautionary measure for COVID-19; this also meant remote teaching for the remainder of the school year.
Fishing charters doesn’t feel like work for Landry, who said he’s had a passion for fishing since childhood. “My parents remember looking at every river we went by if I didn’t bring a rod where we went I would let them know about it the entire time,” said Landry.
“Charter season started out had a few trips and the fishing is tremendous right now actually really good year so far and so definitely looking forward to it,” said Landry.
