Jim is a great fishing guide with a passion for fishing. I just went with my wife and 10 & 12 year old duaghters and had the time of our lives with a true pro fishing guide! My wife caught a 35 lb steelhead! The kids got to learn some pointers and also caught three trout. Jim had a lot of patience with being new to fishing and helped the girls learn what to do. Jim showed us how to prepare the fish also gave us some good pointers on cooking the fish. Jim gave us tips on where we could fish off the bank and find the steel head. I think its a great gift idea! Highly recommended!
