Thank you very much for all of your professionalism and patience in helping to introduce us to fly fishing! We had lots of fun, and I’m afraid that the two of us are hooked at this point (it’s a good thing!) Serrita just purchased a rod, reel, waders and boots!
Chris, It was a fantastic week and we appreciate all of your hard work... It was great learning how to streamer fish and you were right: it is some fast-action fishing! Looking forward to fishing with you again next summer.
Chris gave my fishing buddy Linda and me a wonderful two days of fly fishing on the Stillwater and Yellowstone in July...The wind caused a few more tangles than any of us expected, but Chris patiently unraveled the numerous messes (usually created by me) so we could get back to fishing. He put us on some great wading places, one of which netted me a huge brown -- my biggest fish of the day…
My girlfriend from California and I had dreamed of one day fly fishing together in Montana and Stillwater Anglers and our guide Luke surpassed our expectations. With temps reaching 100 degrees the fish weren't hungry but Luke was determined to help us get them to bite and we all landed beautiful 15+ inch rainbows. What a blast. We are looking forward to making an annual excursion.
