Mickey Cunliffe

Mickey Cunliffe

New Hampshire native Mickey Cunliffe has been roaming the pools and runs of the upper Connecticut River since the age of ten. After graduating from the University of New Hampshire, Mickey spent the next couple of years working, and fishing, in Asia. He was able to fish waters that few fly fishers ever have in Malaysia and Mongolia, while also taking casts on waters outside of Beijing, Tokyo, Seoul, and Adelaide.

It’s the Connecticut River however, that Mickey calls his home waters. Specializing in wade fishing trips along the fly fishing only section known to trout bums as the “Trophy Stretch”, Mickey’s passion for fly fishing and appreciation of nature is a great addition for our guests at Tall Timber.

Grouse & Woodcock Hunting
New Hampshire & Vermont

This October, chase the elusive ruffed grouse and woodcock with Tom and his German Shorthaired Pointers Rudy, Monty, Bode and Rosie. Tom has hunted grouse and woodcock in northern New Hampshire and the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont for nearly thirty years.

In addition to hunting NH and VT, Rudy’s credentials include pursuing wild pheasants, sharp tails and sage grouse in Montana. Rudy (Prize I, 112 points) and Monty (Prize II, 107 points) completed N.A.V.H.D.A.'s Natural Ability test, and Bode has shown great promise in his three seasons of grouse hunting - all are eager to get out there this fall.
