“I’m sure our success was due, in large measure, to your skills and knowledge. Everything about the trip exceeded my expectations. The EPIC adventure was truly Epic. The camaraderie, the environment, the fishing, the interaction with everyday New Zealanders, was all better than expected. Your programme is flexible and customised to your client and is a much better option than going to a full service fishing lodge in my opinion…” Jim Stievater, USA, January 2010.
