He was very patient guide and as a former science teacher, very knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna. Unbelievably priced...I've paid twice as much for less with other... More

I have fished numerous times with Richie Hughes of New River Trips on several sections of the New River. We went again yesterday on the the Double Shoals section (by far, my favorite) and caught both quantity and quality fish. It seems like very few fish were under 15" and most of them were caught on the fly rod. This... More

We had a great time with Richie on the New River. He put us on lots of fish and was a fabulous host. I look forward to fishing with him again.

I've got to admit, I've never been much of a fresh water fisherman. Pretty much the only thing I've ever caught was a buzz. My father talked me into this trip, but Ive got to say, it was one of the best fishing trips. You can relax, check out the beautiful, peaceful scenery all while puttin fish in the box.... More
