I lived in Alaska for 20 years and brought my family back this summer. This was one of the best parts of the trip. John is incredibly passionate about fishing and was a great teacher to all of us. The gear was top-of-the-line (kept us dry even though it was POURING rain!) and his expert guidance caused us to catch... More

Our family of five, including three boys ages 9, 12 and 15, all had a blast on our half-day fishing trip with John on the beautiful Kenai River. He provided all the necessary equipment, waders, etc. and a GREAT sense of humor and patient instruction for all of us, even the most novice. I booked with him because of the... More

John was both an experienced guide and cheerful guy who is doing what he loves. We caught Dolly Vardens, Rainbows, and then waded in for Sockeyes (3 caught, 2 fileted, by John, and eaten). Expect a great time, they provide all equipment.

If you find yourself in the Cooper Landing/Seward AK area and want a fun and productive day (or half-day) fishing on the Kenai River, call John and Heather 1-855-595-3505. They operate Float & Fish out of Cooper Landing. John is an excellent guide and you will have the opportunity to fish from the boat as well as fishing by wading.... More

John and family, you are the best! We had such a great time floating down the beautiful Kenai and actually catching fish! Loved John's contagious enthusiasm for both fishing and the Kenai! These folks are the real deal, they won't let you down, you'll have a GREAT time! Thanks for the memories!

John, I can't thank you enough for talking my wife into fishing.She had told me that she only wanted to take pictures of me while I fished with you for those monster trout in the Kenai. I don't know everything you said but you convinced her to give it a try since I had bought her a license just in... More

We went down the mighty Kenai with John today. It was an absolutely wonderful trip. John tailored the trip exactly to our needs, knowing exactly what we needed even when we didn't. He was entertaining, educational, a lot of fun, professional , safety conscious, and made the kids feel like they were on the top of the world. Don't be... More

John provided a once in a life time experience fishing for sockeye in July, 2013. This was my first time fishing for reds. John is not only a great guide, but also a patient teacher. I was impressed with his constant concern for safety. We caught fish all day, laughed, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

In early July 2012 I was fortunate enough to convince my parents to go with us on a return trip to Alaska. My Dad has been an avid fisherman his whole life, and had always talked about fishing Alaska, but had never done it. Since it was to be likely his only Alaska trip, I had set up several fishing...
