Seth TaylorAssistant Manager
A lifelong angler, Seth was born and raised in Maine, but cut his teeth in the fly fishing industry in Seattle; meaning, he's as enamored with the estuaries and beaches of Puget Sound as Penobscot Bay, as into steelheading as jigging mackerel, as pumped to wade big water for salmon and stripers as to paddle canoes or kick around in inflatables for trout and bass. He's excited to be with Maine Sport Outfitters, promoting the adventurous outdoor lifestyle and balanced use of the outdoors. Seth is a Registered Maine Guide, loves living in Rockport with his family and fishing year round locally, and everywhere when time and good fortune allow.
