About Joe Demalderis

Capt. Joe Demalderis (known to most as Joe D.) was introduced to fly fishing in 1970. He has been fishing the Delaware since the mid 1970's and has been an Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Guide for more than a decade. Joe has traveled throughout North America fishing for trout, Atlantic salmon and steelhead.  Recently he added South America to his itinerary, fishing for those hard fighting Patagonian trout.  From July through November, he splits his time between the Delaware and the saltwater where he guides fly fishermen and light tackle enthusiasts for striped bass, false albacore and blues from his 23' center console.  He is also a Pro Staff member of ClackaCraft Drift Boats and has appeared in several national fishing magazines and fly fishing books. So far in his guiding career, Joe has logged tens of thousands of hours on the water. A life member in Trout Unlimited, Joe also serves on the board of directors of Friends of the Upper Delaware River.
