Quotes First time fly fishing. We were out celebrating my husbands 50th. Shane was very kind and took the time to walk us through all the steps to catching some beatiful fish. The highlights included a 19" and 14" rainbow trout. Had a great time and learned all about the river, fish and even flies. Very cool. Thank you Quotes

Fun

Quotes Shane took our party out on the Elk River for our first trout fishing excursion and put us on fish all day! None of us had ever caught trout on fly before, but with Shane's guidance we caught fish at all locations in the water column. My brother caught a monster Rainbow trout, the best fish of the day, landed using one of Shane's custom tied dry flies. Shane patiently taught my nephew through countless missed strikes until he caught his first 'bow on dry fly, and he put me on my first Brown trout with beautiful brown and red markings. I would recommend Shane to anyone who wants to catch fish, have fun, and learn a ton about fly fishing for trout on the Elk and surrounding rivers. Thanks for a great trip Shane! Cheers, Tommy, Brendan, and Clark Quotes

Quotes Shane took me on my first fly fishing excursion yesterday and I netted 3 nice Rainbows even though I had never cast a fly rod before yesterday. Hooked 3 or 4 more on top of that, that got away or broke the line. Shane was a great teacher and guided us right to where the fish were, so it was easy to catch them. If you are looking to catch fish and have a great day on the water, Shane can provide. Quotes

First time fly fisher

Quotes I just had to let you know that I had an awesome time fishing w/you. I caught the biggest trout of my life with Shane and two others as large the "got away" Shane changed our tactics through out the day, even using size #28-32. He was as excited as I was and he is a real pleasure to be with. This just added to the enjoyment of my trip. He is a skilled guide and the river was great place to fish. Thanks for a great trip.

I caught the biggest trout of my life

Quotes I had a fantastic time. I have been flyfishing most of my life and found Shane to be one of the most enthusiastic fishermen I have met. The patterns and techniques he uses to fish the Elk are top notch. Especially his ant pattern. Quotes

flyfishing nut case

Quotes I am a lifelong flyfisherman and tyer. Fishing with Shane was an eye opener about the techniques and flies needed to be successful on this outstanding river. His enthusiasm knows no bounds and is contagious when fishing. His ant pattern and his own variations of the midges we fished were very successful. Hope to see him again on the river. Quotes

My fly fishin trip

Quotes I had never fly fished and wasn't very good with the technique. I was frustrating myself getting a lot of tangles in my line. With Shane's help and patience I ended up making some nice casts and landing even nicer trout. Check out the proof in the pictures! Enjoyed Shane's fly tying lesson as well, another example of his patience. Had a blast! Thanks Shane, ~Laura Quotes

Quotes I am very new to fly fishing. I took a chance with Shane and was it ever a great move!! He works his butt off to make sure you will catch fish. He helped me with casting and making sure we used a good fly to get the fishes atention. I should have netted no less than 30 fish!! Not at all Shanes fault just me being new to the sport. I would recommend his service 2000%. You will not regret it i promise you that. Quotes
