"I’ve had the privilege to be on the water with Rick over several years on both the Upper West Branch for trout and most recently the lower Delaware bass waters in late summer. As respects the fishing, it’s a given. Rick always puts you on fish irrespective of conditions. Also, it’s always a fun day and the lunch, after fishing hard, hits the spot! In short, Rick gets that it’s not only the fish we are after but also a great experience, whether a beginner or expert. Over time, Rick has become as much a friend as he is a great guide." - MHHCO
"I met Rick at a grouse hunting school last fall and had a wonderful experience. I booked him for 6 days this year on the West Branch of the Delaware and had a blast each time. Rick is a terrific guide and very knowledgeable in fly fishing, grousing and dog handling. He supplies everything you need for a great day on the river and is a wonderful conversationalist. I can recommend him without reservation. The only thing better than Rick is his wife Amber who takes care of all the details of the trip in advance. Their daughter, Ellie, is also an engaging and entertaining dinner companion! Rick does so much more than just fishing- you’ll love taking to him about the variety of his entrepreneurial and outdoor adventures." - Rusty Lewis
"I've been on quite a few guided trips before and I must say the trip I recently took with Rick was one of the best. He was fun to hang around, very personable and quite patient with us. He also got us into fish when the conditions were less than stellar. He packs a mean sandwich and puts on a good river lunch as well. Overall the trip was spectacular and I can't wait to return and do another with Rick." - grinch72
"Rick and Amber run a first-class operation; no detail was overlooked. My father and I fished a couple of days on the Delaware in June 2021. We caught both browns and rainbows, all on dry flies. Rick was patient with our casting and coached us on how to correctly present to rising fish. We enjoyed the trip immensely and look forward to booking a fishing trip next spring and a bird hunting trip this fall. They do it right." - Scotty123
"Friends and I have taken multiple fishing and bird hunting trips with Rick and he provides a top notch experience. His knowledge and experience fly fishing and grouse hunting shows and his easy manner and hospitality makes for a comfortable outing for clients of any experience level. Amber makes the scheduling easy and friendly also. We'll be back again for sure." - ds22
