About Us

Baxter House Outfitters - Capt. Ken Tutalo Custom Flies

In 2000 Capt. Ken Tutalo took ownership of the Baxter House and opened as a Fishing Lodge, Fly Shop, and Fly Fishing Outfitter / Guide service that catered to visiting Fly Fishermen.

Today Baxter House no longer offers lodging but our Fly Shop is now in it's third decade in Roscoe, NY. These days all of our efforts are focused on providing our clients with the finest Fly Fishing Guides, Custom Fly Patterns and first hand knowledge of the waters we fish.

The Baxter House guide staff under Capt. Ken's guidance has earned a solid reputation for pairing clients with the Top Professional Guides in New York's Upper Delaware River System, Florida's Tampa Bay and other popular fisheries around the Country. 

Capt. Ken's Custom Flies


Capt. Ken and the majority of our guides are FULL TIME Fly Fishing Guides and Instructors. We are on the water every day so we know what flies work and when. 

The flies that we stock in our Fly Shop are chosen with only one attribute in mind, their effectiveness at invoking confident takes from large wild fish. I believe that the design components in many of our custom flies are the difference on tough days and when dealing with pressured fish.

We have a solid network of Fly Tyers, many of the relationships with these craftsmen span decades. You can expect our flies to be well above the quality of the average imports you find in most online catalogs. All of our flies are backed by our no questions asked money back guarantee.
