Greg,

You are definitely TROUT KING of the Little Red River. All the testimonials are true! I have guide fished across the US. You are the best. You make your clients catch trout & improve their fly fishing techniques, not to mention your patience with hard headed old farts. I had a blast.

After receiving the video & your extremely professional photos collected over the years of the beauty & wildlife along the Little Red, I realized your value after just one little "trout trip". I will be back to wonder at your wisdom and catch a lot of trout soon.

Dear Greg,
 I thank you for the great 1/2 day on The Little Red on July 30th 2019 and in improving my Fly Fishing skills. You were a wonderful, kind, and patient host. I especially enjoyed your Jet Boat that was able to navigate the shoals easily, where the fish seem to be feeding that day. Greg, your displayed skills in pinpointing targets was exceptional, and has enhanced my own skills with a fly rod. I’ll again look forward to seeing you in the near future with my wife Tara for another day on the beautiful Little Red! 

Thanks again Greg!
 Blessings, Stephen

Greg is a great guide with the heart of a teacher. My 14 year old son and I were complete rookies and Greg had the patience to not only tolerate our mistakes, but to help us overcome them and have a great time. He did a phenomenal job with my son and truly made us feel welcomed on his river and in his sport. He even went above and beyond on taking pictures and video of us. We would gladly use him again and I wish that all the guides I've used were as good.

Dear Greg,

I wanted to drop you a line to once again, tell you how much my son-in-law and I enjoyed the two days we spent fishing with you on the Little Red River in Heber Springs.
Over the past 23 years, fishing in WY, Idaho, CO and AR, I have used at least 12 different guides most of which were very good and some I used multiple times.  Of all the guides I’ve ever used I can truthfully say you are the best. Your boat and equipment was first class and well above what we expected, your knowledge of the river, fishing techniques and fly usage are unequaled.  The lunches you provided were first rate and your sense of humor just made the trip even more enjoyable.
Our safety and enjoyment of the fishing experience was ever present on your mind.  Your patience and understanding of our expectations was outstanding.   Mike and I recounted our catch and release trip and together in the two days, we boated 87 trout and hooked at least 125 of those magnificent fish.  The three 17 inchers we caught merely added to a great trip.  The photos and video you made and forwarded to us was an added feature we surely did not expect.   What a wonderful benefit you offer your fishermen.

You will be recommended to all we know who want to fly fish with a fantastic guide!  We look forward to fishing with you again in the near future.

Sincerely,

Tom Hamilton

Hey Greg, 

Thanks for a wonderful time on the beautiful Little Red River today. The trip was perfect. My 18 year old grandson and I, neither of whom had ever been fly fishing and had never caught a trout had a ball hauling in fish after fish and relying entirely on you to show us the proper techniques and locations to make it all possible. The weather was great including gentle cool breezes and plenty of sunshine, the fish were feisty and aggressive, and the scenery was relaxing. My grandson is a proficient bass fisherman and has plans to perhaps become a pro on the competition circuit, but today’s outing broadened his horizons and both he and I will add fly fishing to our list of outdoor fun. Thanks for all your patient instruction, the tasty lunch, and the opportunity to spend time bonding with my grandson. I would highly recommend your services, without hesitation.

Sincerely,

John S.had this to say -- Greg, Just wanted to drop you a note to tell you how much Allan and I enjoyed fishing with you. I appreciate your patience with two novice fly fishermen and how hard your worked to keep us on the fish. I feel like I learned so much but still have so much to learn so I assure you I will be back. I also enjoyed just visiting and reconnecting with you. I got the picture cd and WOW! I didn't know you were such a great photographer. Karen absolutely loved Sondra's card and is so jealous of her artistic talent. She has always wanted to do watercolors and wants to know if Sondra will teach her. Thanks again for a great trip!


I've been fishing with guides for the last 20 years in a half-dozen states, and after one day with Greg, I'd put him at the top of the list.

I especially admired the way he always had a rod ready for me to use, while he was re-rigging the rod I'd just been using. No other guide I've used has been smart enough to figure that one out. He spared no effort to find fish and guide me to the best presentation. And by the way, I caught over 30 trout--most of them on a fly he invented and ties for the Little Red River. Even the home-cooked hot lunch was outstanding.


Greg, I wanted to say thanks for the pictures and give you an update on my fishing Thurs and Fri.
Thursday I fished at the dam.   I started with the dropper rig and didn't do much good.  I noticed the fish were rising and tied
on the crackleback that you gave me.  I started catching fish with it.  This was up river from the narrow section (guard house). Caught 7 there. I then went further up toward the dam where it is shallow.  Fish were rising there also and was catching fish until the horn blew at 1.  Total of 9 for the morning. 
   Friday I started at the dam in hopes of seeing some rising fish again.  No luck.  The river was getting crowded and I decided to go
to the bridge and fish.  I started with the single midge and was not having any luck.  I fished down stream where the water got deeper and decided to rig up the dropper with sow bug on top and midge on bottom, like we fished on Wed.  I immediately started catching fish.  Caught 3 in one run and thought I was done catching fish for the day.  As I was on the way back upstream, I decided to try another run where guys were fishing earlier.  Caught 8 there in about 45 min.  I had to get back to the camper to get ready to head home or I would have stayed longer.  Both days started slow but ended up being successful.
  I was great being able to fish so much in one week. Our trip on Wed definitely boosted my confidence on Thurs and Fri.  I was able to use the knots you showed me and using the different indicator is much better than the foam that won't move.  I went to the fly shop and got some more indicators and some soft weight.  Small things can make a big difference.
 
Once again, thanks for the trip and all the tips and info.  You helped make it a great week of fishing for me.  I hope to see you on the river or at the fly shop on one of my return trips.

Evenin' Greg and Happy New Year wishes from Memphis. Thank you so much for the wonderful photos and the certificate for Max. Your thoughtfulness and personal attention too all the details of our trip etc...are so appreciated. Max and I read your card together and "Rivers of Memory" quote and noticed how beautiful your wife's oil painting on the front of the card was to us. Max hasn't stopped talking about you and the trip and the 7 rainbow he caught and how one was "24.23 inches"!

The cookies made his tummy smile and the tea kept us warm. What a perfect day - whether we'd been catching or just fishing.

We'll be back soon. Count on it. May the new year bring success, joy and peace and the eternal comfort of family and friends. Glad we're friends.

One can never have too many wonderful people in his life.

In parting, I share with you one of my favorite parts in literature from "A River Runs Through It"

"Like many fly fishermen in western Montana where the summer days are almost Arctic in length, I often do not start fishing until the cool of the evening. Then in the Arctic half-light of the canyon, all existence fades to a being with my soul and memories and the sounds of the Big Blackfoot River and a four-count rhythm and the hope that a fish will rise. Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of those rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. I am haunted by waters."

With great fondness,

Rebecca

I received the CD from you.

Again, Louis and I enjoyed the fishing and a great guiding.

There is little if any that brings me so much sheer pleasure.

Enjoy the Holidays !

See you probably in the spring and hopefully low water.
