Reviews and research on a product or service are a big part of determining what I buy, so I included this review from a client I guided last friday for everyone to read. Now you may be wondering, "well its not like he would put a bad review on his website". True, but I would also do everything in my power during or directly after the trip to make it a 100% positive experience for everyone involved. Remember, the customer is always right! Enjoy Spring -Kyle
I like your approach to guiding alot better than other guides I have seen. Here are some thoughts on howthe day went. Feel free to use this however you want.
The best way to start a day with a novice is to use the net to collect all of the insects and other things that live in the river. No guide had ever taken the time to explain what lives where, what different things eat and how the basics of the river ecosystem fit together. Now that I am able to picture a real stonefly and a stonefly-fly, it is much easier to assume how a trout will react to things. I think you should do that with everyone you take out on the river because it was very interesting.
The best thing you have going for you is your knowledge of the river and the area. Looking in the cave and going over the local plants was also an interesting stop and provided a good breather from casting and watching the water. Lunch was great, as well. In general, I would recommend you highly to anyone looking for this kind of fishing in Missouri. I think the price is very reasonable and you actually teach your clients something rather than simply saying "cast it over there."
I really do not have any criticisms at all. I had a great day. I was pleasantly surprised at how many fish I caught and enjoyed the company.I'll be back down there as soon as I can (we'll see how long that actually takes).
Thanks, Phil Glynn
