The classes provided with Rick Haefle and Dave Hughes were instrumental in our family growth in fly fishing and entomology understanding. Thanks Smurf for all of the great years of service.

I moved to OR in 2002, separated from my dog, girlfriend, took a really ****ty job working for a Nazi, horrible apartment.... one thing that was positive was how John S. greeted me, helped me to fish without pushing a day of guiding, sharing knowledge and kindness - my solace was fishing weekends. I now live in Maupin OR and talk to John a lot, he remains a good friend and IMHO knows this river (Deschutes) better than anyone and always is honest about his reports, advice, and is such a solid guy. Thanks John!
