We had a great fishing trip with John. Each of caught fish even for the little four year old boy. John was very experienced and patient enough to teach us. He tried very hard to make sure each family member had a good time. I would definitely recommend John to my friends.

My wife and I fished with John this Monday afternoon and had a blast. First off, his equipment was Sage rods and G-Loomis reels. John knew where the reds were when everyone else said the sockeye weren't up river yet. Plus the history John told us as we floated down was very interesting. My wife became an expert doing the...

Hands down, John was the best guide fishing guide we've ever had on any trip and the best guide we had on any Alaskan experience! Don't even think about fishing or floating the Kenai with anyone else! John loves his job and his passion and expertise make for an amazing fishing experience. My husband was an experienced fisherman, but neither... More

John is the most enthusiastic and knowledgeable fishing guide I have ever met. From the time we met him to the time our trip was done he was nothing but the consummate fishing guide and coach. He made sure that all four of us received personal attention and the help we needed. He was attentive and was on top of... More

I selected John at Float-n-Fish based on other reviews and emailing back-and-forth with him and his wife Heather. They were extremely responsive to questions to help in my selection, and when the day came, we were not disappointed. This was to be the capstone on a month long trip, with the last two in Alaska, and what a way to... More

When our plans to raft Six Mile Creek in Hope didn't work out due to water levels, we decided to do a 3 hour scenic Kenai River float instead. The river is gorgeous. Saw plenty of eagles, an otter, and dall sheep/mountain goats on the mountains. Our guide was very nice and friendly. We had a great time. The river... More
