"Thanks Tim, What a fantastic time. I've shown the web site to lots of people. I've got a couple of "reps" salivating, not to mention Kyle & Ken's desire to go again!"

---Dr. Doug L., Cadillac, MI

"Thanks for the photos and a great day! Paul and I were talking on the way home and we both wanted to say thanks for a wonderful day. We appreciated your last stop on the river which gave me a chance to hook up. It was an added touch to a great day. We were headed back to the launch when you decided to stop. You could have kept going and made it home 30 minutes earlier. Well, O.K. an hour earlier! It takes a long time to land a record fish! Thanks again."

---Jack C. & Paul H., Lansing, MI

"Thank you again for a wonderful day on the back waters of the Tippy Dam. Brenda and I talked about it the entire ride back to Grand Rapids. Although I'm glad I don't have to lift my arm to type this email! I never knew that I could cast as well as I did after your excellent instruction on the water (except when a smallie was around). I will definitely practice your tips on fly casting. The date for October  will work for me for a Steelhead trip. I'll forward you the deposit to hold the date if this works for you. Again, thank you, I'll look forward to seeing you in October."

---John L., Grand Rapids, MI

"I spent the entire trip home in a glow of your kind and professional hosting! You really outdid yourself. I am very appreciative....."     

---Harry R., Richmond, VA

"I just wanted to thank you for the most incredible fishing ever. Thank you for being very professional and a great host. Michigan has so much to offer and I'm sure my family will return in the near future."

---Dustin C., Bicknell, IN

"Thanks so much Tim, for the great outing we had yesterday....I went home with a smile on my face and a great satisfaction that I did something I've wanted to do for sometime now..caught a Steelhead!! Never would have happened without you for sure....I see why you are successful as a river guide..You are candid and friendly, and really alot of fun to talk "fishing" with. Thanks again for the great memory Ultimate Outfitters has provided for me. It will not be forgotten."

---Jeff B., Bay City, MI

"I just wanted to thank you again for the two great days on the river. Everything you did was first rate!  I'm looking forward to booking a trip this summer with my wife to catch some stream trout. Also, I will be calling you shortly to book a couple of dates in October and next April."

--Dennis C., Birmingham, MI.

"My dad and I wanted to thank you for the great day we had with you on the river. You did an outstanding job! Thank you very much. I hope to book another day in the future."

--Anders G., Lansing, MI.

"I really had a good time last weekend. Fishing King Salmon was such a unique experience for me. I've never caught a fish that size!!! I can not get concentrated at work remembering those Salmon jumping out of the river. Butch is an excellent guide as well as a very nice guy. I had a great time talking and learning about fishing with him. Thank you again for everything."

--Ignacio G., Spain

"I wanted to let you know how much Harry and I enjoyed our fishing in April. The time has flown by and the memories are most vivid. That was some incredible fishing, especially the second day. Your style is great, keep up the good work."

--Neal R., Richmond, VA.

"I just wanted to thank you again for the fantastic days of fishing. I appreciate your patience as you taught my wife and I to fly fish for these awesome fish. The trill of landing my first Steelhead on a fly rod was unbelievable. The fact that it weighted thirteen pounds was a bonus. The peace and beauty of the Manistee River is breathtaking. My wife and I enjoyed watching the eagles, deer, and other creatures as we moved down the river. I think she is permanently hooked on Steelhead fishing now. She really enjoyed the great conversation, fishing lessons, and hot shore lunch that you provided. We will be firming up reservations for four more days in April for a return trip."

--Greg S., Toledo, OH.

"I just wanted to write and thank you. We had a great trip! That was one of my best times on the water anywhere. We'll definitely come and fish with you again!"

--Bob C., Chicago, IL.

"Just a note to tell you how much fun Frank and I had on our trip last Friday. I just can't find the words to tell you what a great outing it was...great time, great fishing!"

--Jerry B., Charlotte, NC.

"Thanks for the shots.  My 7 year old keeps asking why you are in all the photos in my office where I'm standing next to a really nice fish. Considering the size of these catches, she now wants to learn to fly fish.  Another convert! Here are the best of the photos that I took from the last trip.  Drop a couple of these in the river on your next trip out to seed the water for our next trip.  Once again, great job!  I hope to see you again soon."

--Phil F., Tulsa, OK.
