Dear family Jones
As you may know, if you like to make the very most perfect letter it takes a lot of planning and time and as I have had a very busy time I never got to sit down to make this happen. I have two weeks of Christmas and New Year's vacation now and enjoy, specially because I got time to do this. I hope you will forget the disappointment from not getting our review uploaded but hope to use this to be uploaded as the review.
Adriana, Mike and kids
I am writhing on behalf of the FFFF team, I/We have had one of the best times ever and this is a big understatement, I would love if I could write you in Danish, expressing feelings in English is so difficult.
You made this week into a blast, your hospitality had no ends, you treated us like true friends from the very first moment, I still remember the very first toast on the terrace area where the scenery wiped our legs, it was just amazing looking at the Fraser river with the most beautiful sunset, that is what I call a Welcome.
The hospitality had no end, you just continued treading us as family as the week went on, we got time with your two girls, sorry I can 't remember the names but the pleasant presence and hope I got them to read some stories of H.C. Andersen :-) please keep doing what you do as this definitely works, some great kids.
Adriana, I will never forget the hospitality, you are a dame good chef and a dancer too. The tread was magnificent even I had to have Lactose and Gluten free food you managed to tread me the same way as the rest of the crew delicious food all week, lunch packs for the boat with the same passion too make it complete.
The food was only one side of you, you also made our week fun and unforgettable, had time to enjoy a drink (or two) , laughs, stories, and had care for your family. Your house was not only cozy but full with charm. All this combined with all of us and some good music made it just right.
Your kitchen was equipped to serve 10-12 people and still with the greatest view over the terrace area and Fraser river. When the steaks was Barbecued on the terrace the teeth watering sitting enjoying a drink in the sun waiting to get your homemade delicious food and thank god we had the joy two nights.
Mike, I can't tell about your dancing but you're got dam good at throwing dice, hope you enjoyed the game "Snyd" / cheating. The main living room was the very perfect surroundings for a game like that and with a cold drink on the table, man! this is life.
You and Adriana were tremendous hosts you made the week something we'll never forget, you used tons of e-mails to get all the questions answered organizing down to the smallest detail, even in the middle of the trip we found a small mistake in our communication as we were planning to have a day off on Saturday to go to Vancouver but never told you but even this was turned around in a day's time a we could spend a daytrip to Vancouver and got fishing on Sunday, this is what I call dedicated and the same go for the skipper.
You got us the best skipper on Fraser river, we enjoyed he's attitude, fun, serious, know how to find the fish had a lot of the best gear, not to mention the lovely girlfriend. Matt! A young guy with the insight to tread us as we appreciated with respect for fishing but made room for a drink or two .., laughs, and a lot of fishing tricks. I hope you will take care of Matt and tread him well in the future .
You also got us guided to some excellent restaurants downtown Chilliwack 5 minutes drive from your place but I believe if we have known how god the tread was at your home kitchen as we enjoyed the two last days we would have been eating with you all week, and as you suggested making the king salmon on the barbecue one night I still regret we didn't do that, what a bad decision.
All what we needed to go fishing was arranged by you, fishing license, boat, skipper, fishing gear, everything, we didn't have to bring anything but we were not really sure before we left home so we did bring some gear but this was not used, again a good lesson learned you are to trust.
We got all we came for good time and a lot of fish; 1 trout , 5 sturgeon(up to 7,5 feet), one big king salmon, more than 10 COHO salmons, and a lot's of pinks:-) Great fights, fantastic fishing.
The heartiest regards
Flemming, Dus, Henrik and Erik
