Featured Testimonial: Our Clients Write In

Hi Joe,
So it's been two days since we fly fished with you and tied flies. you have made this trip one to truly remember, from the amount of Steelhead we caught, and you teaching us how to tie flies. It was an epic trip that will be talked about, with us boy's for ever! We definitely made the best of the toughest conditions. when no other guide was producing, you did it. and that's why we will keep coming back to you and Sindbad for years to come. I think we have turned rick into a true fly fisherman with your help. Graig and I have always been traditional fly boy's, but without your help rick still would be a open face reel type of guy!!! thank you so much for everything you have done to improve Graig and I's fly fishing skill's. you are by far the best guide the salmon river has to offer, and i cant wait to do this again. in the two years we have been relying on your help; you have not let us down. I'm tying flies like crazy now, and what a satisfaction to catch a Steelhead on a fly you tied yourself.
The very best to you and Sinbad
Dan,Greg & Rick
