BRL is the complete package. Cheryl and Rick are gracious, knowledgeable and accommodating. Our guide, Dell, made our river experience unique and most definitely put us on fish early and often. He had intimate knowledge of the river, our prey and helped us quickly produce. Our chef David (we had him to ourselves) ensured that our food experience was exceptional....

We fished one day, had a...

My husband had visited the lodge last year and wanted me to experience it with him. Cheryl and Rick are great hosts. The highlight, other than fishing, was the exceptional food. Shawn Smith has a gift. Everything he prepared was outstanding. I have owned a restaurant and had a catering business and I was so impressed with his skills. A...
