William Heresniak - Owner/Guide


My name is Williams Heresniak and as the owner and sole guide for Eastern Trophies Fly Fishing, I truly love what I do. My background is in Education and Coaching. With that experience, guiding comes naturally to me. My main objective is to teach the clients I guide, everything I can when they are with me. I want my clients to be able to fish more efficiently and effectively so that they can catch more fish and larger fish. I keep things simple and direct so it's easy to understand. My true passion is working with the Veterans of Project Healing Waters. I am proud to say that I was one of the first Volunteers to work with the program back in 2006, I am a Century Club Member and I am proud recipient of the Patriot Award. I am also a full time Elementary Physical Education Teacher in Alexandria, VA and I coach Varsity Field Hockey for TC Williams High School.

This is the second most important thing to me with my daughter being the first. Spending a day on the water with Veterans is truly an honor. See more of the PHW's float trip photos by clicking below.
