Just wanted you to know how much fun my wife and I had fishing with you. She was a little nervous about being in the Columbia, but you made her feel safe and right at home. And once we started catching Salmon, there wasn’t time to worry about anything. Really enjoyed your boat and the top notch equipment you have. I would recommend you to anyone who fishes, from seasoned veterans to family outings. Thanks.

I wanted to tell you again what a great time my neighbor and I had fishing with you. Having someone who really knows what they are doing and putting us in the fish made the trip so much better. Kudos to you on your first class boat and top notch fishing gear. I will always remember this trip and my first 30 lb Salmon. Thanks.
