Chris and Morgan were amazing guides for our half day fly fishing adventure. We were all complete amateurs, and Chris and Morgan were friendly, patient and wonderful instructors. We highly recommend this adventure to everyone.

My godson and I spent a great day on the river with Matt. He was so encouraging and enthusiastic and obviously loves teaching others how to fly fish. My godson couldn't stop saying how much fun he had, and that was all thanks to Matt!
