"I have fished with Rob a number of times now, and I can say he is one of the best, most knowledgeable fly guides I have ever been around. I am an experience fly fisherman, and though I could fish the waters solo now, I continue to go back to him purely because he is a blast to fish with. He loves to educate and you can tell that fly fishing is his passion. He literally knows every bug there is, and what the fish are eating at the time. (Rob has a degree in Entomology from TAMU). I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to go catch some fish on the LMF River or on Lake Fork. I promise you will not be disappointed." Bryan M., Houston, TX.
