Rob Snowhite is a professional fly-fishing consultant devoted to training and tutoring aspiring anglers. His multi-tiered background in consulting, education, fly-fishing, biological science, and writing The New Adventures of Old Christine fan-fiction gives him a trained vantage point from which to approach his craft. During your two-hour guided trip, you and a friend, loved one, or sentient pet cat get to explore the DC area's waterways while walking in, wading, or canoe floating over your choice of lake, river, pond, or stream. Rob will carefully explain both the mechanical and theoretical aspects of fly-fishing while emphasizing only the catch-and-release method of fishing, as well as sustainable ways of exploring the water. Learn the basics of casting on grass or on water, knot tying, rods, reels, flies, entomology, hydrology, and more. All equipment is provided for the trip, as well as drink and snack rewards for staying on top of your fish-based fly game (lunch is optional and an additional $10 per person).

Since 1956, Valley Mill Kayak School has trained countless kayakers, including the first kayaking recipients of Olympic medals, on the deep waters of the Potomac River. A former Olympian and four-time freestyle-kayaking world champion, Eric Jackson personally designs the school's lesson plans around modern whitewater-paddling techniques. Eric trains each of the school's American Canoe Association–certified instructors, who, in turn, dispense their knowledge to beginners and proficient paddlers alike.

Through a wealth of small classes, private lessons, and occasional clinics taught by Eric himself, pupils discover such skills as paddling and basic strokes, or attempting to work your kayak into rhythmic-gymnastics routines.

On half- and full-day fishing charters aboard the 50-foot Hook Marsh, anglers reel in flounder, sea trout, rockfish, and other underwater denizens of Chesapeake Bay, depending on the season. Crew members are on hand to help with nets and gear, leaving passengers free to focus on casting lines and posing for photos with fresh catches. At the boat's controls, a trusty captain monitors radar, fish finders, chart plotters, and other equipment to help locate the best spots for snagging fish. The company also offers sightseeing cruises past lighthouses and waterfront restaurants.
