We had a blast. Neal was a great guide and did everything he could to get the fish to bite! His knowledge of the river and fly fishing was second to none.

Had an awesome time on the water with Doug. The float trip for small mouth bass was full of beautiful scenery and loads of nice fish. Very talented angler who is willing to share his knowledge to help put you on the fish of a lifetime!
