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,

George Scott

Greg, Thanks for the great fishing trip from Pangburn last week. An amazing fishing experience -- lots of big fish just where you said there would be. Thanks for your expertise and all your hard work to keep Lisa and myself busy landing the fish. We look forward to the next trip from Lobo Landing. Chuck (Texas)


 



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.


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!


Greg,
 
Thanks for the pictures.  Rob and I had a great time on the Little Red.  I can honestly say I don't think a day goes by that I don't think of that day fishing.  I have one of the pictures as my wallpaper on my computer.  There really haven't been to many opportunities for fishing around here, or in Tennessee because of all the rain.  I hope it hasn't slowed y'all down too much.  Anyway, I would really like to get up that way again and we will definitely try to plan another trip as soon as possible.  Thanks again for a great day and the photos.  Try to stay dry.

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.

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

Greg,

Thank you very much for a great time and the patience you had with us, this is the first time "ever" any of us three have done anything like this together and the fish we caught and missed were all we could talk about back to Conway.

Thanks again for a fantastic time.

Hey Greg,

Just wanted to say thanks again for a great day on the river. I lost track once more after you started counting again after we had been in the honey hole a bit so have no reasonably accurate number to allege to when I tell others.. What was the pink fly we were using? I think it was a streamer(?) of some sort with some pink maribou but don't visualize it clearly and feel dumb trying to describe it. Not sure why pink works so good there but you don't see it used here... I may try it here as a wild card sometime (first stocking starts next week).

I was so jazzed I couldn't wait to call all my fishing buddies with a report.

Thanks again,

Janice
