First I'd like to thank Amy for making the booking process as painless and easy as possible. She also actually takes the time to hold a conversation rather than those short simple business only minded answers as well! Even if it has nothing to do with the trip she listens! Now on to our guide Marc, he was nothing short of phenomenal. He took the time to teach my girlfriend how to fish from beginning to end helping her land her first 3 bass.

Take care and thank you again! Eric March.

Amy & Mark: You guys are the best. Glad to hear H2O is up, I know Mark was getting a bit concerned. He's great. I mentioned to him, I have fished with about 10-12 guides and no one held a candle to him. he's fishing for the client, not for his next wanna be pro tourney. Turns out I out fished almost all of them.

Take care and thank you again! Al.
