Featured Testimonial: Our Clients Write In

Had a great time with Joe this past weekend (10/17-10/18). It's guaranteed early mornings, late nights, lots of fish, and....a whole lot of personality! This was my second time with Joe, and times are tough on the Salmon River this run. We spent the day before on our own before working with Joe, and barely had any hookups. Up and down...the banks were lined with people with no fish.

We started working with Joe on Saturday, and our luck immediately changed. His great gear, his incredible knowledge of the river, and his awesome boxes, and boxes, and boxes or hand tied flies put us on fish! We had 37 hooks-ups, on a river that was struggling to to keep fisherman past 2 in the afternoon. My buddy, with no fly rod experience, spent time with Joe and quickly got over the learning curve. He even landed a brown trout! Joe put me on his best spey rod, a 13 ft. monster, and this made all the distance. The only thing better than the pictures taken of the fish, was listening to Joe's laugh all day long....

I definitely would recommend Joe and his guide service.
