Patrick Cassidy


Patrick Cassidy bought New England Maritime in 2021 from its longtime owners, Jim and Leanne Hurley, after coming onboard as an instructor in 2020. Patrick holds a Master credential for near coastal waters. He owns a fly fishing and light tackle guide service, which he launched after securing his captain’s license through New England Maritime. Before becoming a full-time fishing guide, he worked for nearly 15 years at the Cape Cod Times as a reporter and news editor. When he’s not teaching or fishing for work, he likes fishing and teaching for fun. Sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference.
