Fly Fishing in Carlisle PA

Tis the season for fly fishing in Carlisle PA! This area has some of the best limestone creeks in the mid-Atlantic region. Legendary fishermen literally "wrote the book" on fly fishing from their experiences here in the Carlisle area. The Yellow Breeches and the LeTort Spring are both within 4 miles from Pheasant Field B&B.

Check out this YouTube video of a fisherman nearby. The fishing is great! We can help you with a guide and/or directions to the limestone creeks and to great shops/outfitters.

This weekend

This weekend's weather is predicted to be wonderful! Come to Carlisle - and stay at Pheasant Field B&B - for fly fishing, some great art and antiques, or for the Bike Fest at Carlisle fairgrounds.

The Bike Fest not only about motorcycles. There will be a number of bands playing, "Roadhouse Recipes" (sounds like a cooking demonstration!), and even a K-9 Frisbee exhibition!

If you would rather be on the water, there is Kayaking for beginners at Pine Grove Furnace State Park.

If gardening is your thing, in Mechanicsburg there will be a Sunflower Garden Tour & Flower Show.

And don't forget, Allenberry Theatre is currently running "The Producers". Ask about your discount theatre tickets when you stay at Pheasant Field B&B.
It's not too late - book now!

Ben Franklin slept here

Ben Franklin (aka Chris Lowell) recently stayed here at Pheasant Field B&B.
The actor who portrays the wise and wonderful Ben Franklin graduated from Dickinson College here in Carlisle. He was in the area to perform his historical portrayal of one of our founding fathers. So Ben - or rather Chris - met one of his fellow alumni here, to share a few memories and a few laughs.

It was great to have him here especially so near the 4th of July!
