"What a terrific
experience! My two sisters and I -- all novices to the sport -- took a two-day
course with Bert and we loved it. Bert loves fly fishing and he is
such a great teacher. Each of us learned enough in the two days to
now fly fish on our own. We can't stop talking about the experience
(or the sport) and we highly recommend it!.. In fact, now we want to send
our husbands to the course."

"Thanks again for the wonderful
experience that you provided -- it was the perfect combination of information
and recreation, all in a beautiful setting. My sons and I will always
remember the excellent casting demonstrations and hands-on teaching, and
we all now know all we ever wanted regarding flies, nymphs, and knots."
"Bert and his
instructors put on expert casting clinics and did fly fishing discussions
for two evenings in Central Park for Blaylock & Partners. They inspired
both large groups to want to continue on with the sport."

“My time spent
fly fishing with Bert on the Beaverkill was memorable. Bert was generous
and willing to share his many years of Catskills fly fishing experiences
with me. I
was amazed by his focus and attention to details when he was pointing out
where to find trout. Bert knows where the trout are!”
was both expert and non-intimidating, and I left with a deep appreciation for the art and lore of
fly fishing. I felt that I definitely came away with the building blocks that will
serve me well in what I hope will be a lifelong pursuit.”
