[if gte mso 9]>Normal0falsefalsefalseEN-CAX-NONEX-NONEMicrosoftInternetExplorer4Hi Frank,

 

I though I would just drop you a short note to say how much myself, Graeme, Bob, and Davie thoroughly enjoyed our week with you.

 

Your staff were fantastic and were kind and caring which is a truly great quality to have, making their guests feel wanted and important. The food was also exceptional and your chef is to be congratulated for such a varied and high quality and tasty menu.

 

Your river guides are also exceptional highly professional people. We were so impressed when Dan's fellow guides came to his aid on the day that Dan took seriously ill and his boat broke down.They went out of their way, involving several family members, to make this unfortunate situation as easy as possible for Dan and for his clients.We really do hope that Dan's health issues are resolved soon. All your river guides including your good self showed true professionalism and looked after our safety and wellbeing for which we are also very grateful indeed.

 

Our final tally between us for the week was 70 salmon of all five pacific species( with about as many hooked and lost) and 3 sturgeon as well as around 35 trout taken on our last day with you.

 

Please also thank all your office staff and particularly the girls in the restaurant. We enjoyed great fun with them and excellent service and they are a real credit to your organisation.

 

The local rivers here will be brightened up by our new Simms Jackets next season. Thanks very much for giving us such a generous discount on these resulting in a major saving from the price of these jackets here in Scotland.

 

Best Wishes to all

 

Kind Regards

 

Mel

Oct.10, 2013. Salmon fishing has been the best so far this season as the bigger runs of coho and chum salmon start entering the system. Here are a few pics from the Big Al and his boys from Oklahoma. Enjoy ...

Oct. 08, 2013. Salmon fishing has finally turned on, although we are still waiting for the big push. Hopefully the current rain will trigger more salmon moving into our river system. Sturgeon fishing remains strong. This morning we landed a variety of 4 salmon species and a nice size cutthrout trout so far.

September ended as expected with Millions and Millions of pink salmon providing memorable fishing days for our guests and guides alike. We enter October with the first Coho and Chum Salmon already landed, but also with the last signs of the excellent sockeye salmon run we have had on our wilderness river - until 2014.
