My first time fly fishing was awesome! The weather was incredibly windy but we were able to find a smaller pond that was stocked with trout and protected from the wind. Travis was welcoming, a good instructor, and very patient. I'm definitely going to fly fish again.

Travis taught us a new skill and new techniques for fly fishing. He went above and beyond with the lessons. I recommend him to anyone who wants to learn. He’s patient and calm.

I have wanted to learn to fly fish for a long time. So of course I jumped at the chance to sign up for this lesson while I was on vacation. Travis is a great teacher. He was very good at explaining technique and if he felt that you weren't really understanding he would try to explain it in a different way. So in this respect I think he is very good at reading people to make their experience the best it can be. Travis has a great personality, he is fun, laid back and it was just a fun Friday morning spent learning something new. So to any of you ladies out there that might want to try your hand at fly casting but feel self-conscious or nervous like me, Travis is your man. He was very patient and gave me a lot of feedback to improve my casts and also doled out lots of encouragement when I felt discouraged. I am really glad that I had this experience.
