Spending countless days fishing the LeHigh River, Steve most likely knows the river better than almost anyone. He regularly catches Trophy Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout and Smallmouth Bass.

This gives Steves customers the ability to make multiple casts in areas and holes where most fishermen only have time for a single cast. The boat is set up for both fly fishing and conventional fishing depending on the skills and desires of the clients.

Today Terry has been teaching in Oregon for over 30 years and is still teaching today. He has been married to his wife D'Ann for 35 years and they have to grown daughters by the name of Kelsey and McKenzie. Recently Terry and D'Ann became a grandparents and they have another grandchild on the way.

It is one thing to start your day on the water at a boat ramp on a lake or river to begin a fun day of fishing.

Not to mention crossing the bar one more time at the end of your day.
Charles Loos, The Ocean Coach, has built his business on coaching individual Sports Fishermen, Charter Captains and Fishing Guides on how to navigate the precarious waters and weather conditions of the ocean.

His program is customized, one on one, training that helps boaters become more comfortable in navigating marine waters. Unlike a seminar or lecture, Charles works with all his clients individually on what they personally need most to become a better and more knowledgeable mariner.
