The desire to experience fly fishing had always lingered within me, yet the chance never presented itself. Luke generously provided me with the fundamentals and ample practice. In a mere 20 minutes, I successfully landed my inaugural brown trout. Drifting along the river solely propelled by oars and the gentle current was incredibly soothing. Gratitude to Luke for orchestrating such an exceptional and enjoyable excursion!

Such an enjoyable experience with an excellent guide and captain! Luke made learning and fishing an absolute blast. Despite having over 50 years of fishing experience in Florida, I had never tried fly fishing before. Luke imparted a wealth of knowledge, and to my delight, I even reeled in some catches! Eagerly looking forward to the next fishing adventure with him!
