  • In my many years of fly-fishing, I have never come close to the adventure and excitement we had floating and camping on that beautiful river in the Alaska wilderness. It was the most exciting outdoor experience of my life and I will never forget that trip!

  • I will not attempt to express my admiration for the fly fishing which you provide, as words cannot adequately express the quality of the exquisite Copper River and the quantity and quality of the superb Rainbow trout which inhabit it. Suffice to say that I do not expect to encounter such an experience elsewhere in my lifetime
