I just got back
home and wanted to take a minute to tell you what a
truly good time I had fishing with you today. It's
not often that I get to take time off and go really
relax and have a great time. Thanks for taking
care of all the stuff and just allowing us to catch
fish. Also thanks for teaching me some new
techniques. People all have different ideas about
using guides. Obviously, they have never fished
with you or they would not go it alone I enjoyed the
fishing, the conversation, the
instruction, and the fishing stories - I guess you would
just call it a good day. Maybe we can do a night
trip with you soon.
gladly give your name to anyone looking for a
great guide and great person to spend some time
fishing with when you get a chance e-mail me the
picture - that way everyone will know I'm not
Thanks again - See you next trip

This is Eric,
from California. I just wanted to take
the time and thank you for such a great
fishing experience. My brother
(Kenny) and I had the times of our
lives. It was my first experience with a
guide, and you made it worth every
penny. You are a really nice guy,
easy to get a long with and have a great
knowledge of Lake Fork fishing--the
recipe for a wonderful
time and experience.
Thank you so much for the trip of a life
time. My step father will be visiting Texas in a few months and I
gave him your information, you guys will have a blast together.
Gene, here is a picture of Kenny's
9+ lber and of course the "Lady of
Fork". I really can't thank you enough
for the trip, it will never be

I want to say thanks for an
exceptional day fishing, this pass Friday. It was my first
experience with a fishing guide, and I sought one with some hesitancy.
I had heard more negatives than positives concerning the use of guides.
I have only good words about the way in which you performed your task.
You certainly had your client’s best interest in mind the entire day.
Last but certainly not least, I
have never caught the number nor the size of fish that we did last week.
Our success was certainly
upon your expertise. Don and I look forward to Fall and seeking
your services as our guide once more.

Just a note to say thanks for all the guided
trips I’ve been on with you over the past
five years. The day trips have been
and the night trips with you even better.
I’ve always recommended you to other friends
and fishermen. The experience and
knowledge I have gained while fishing with
you at Lake Fork has been invaluable.
I am looking forward to at least three trips
with you this coming year. Thanks again for
the great times see you this spring.

like to thank you for the great time Steve and I
had fishing with you on our trip to lake fork.
We took the info you gave
us and on the last day of our trip, just before
dark, I landed a 10 pound bass on a jig in the
same location I caught the 9.75 when we were
with you. Unfortunately, Steve lost one
that was between 9 and 10 pounds. We
caught several in the 6 to 7 pound range.
Even though the fishing was a little slow while
fishing with you, you kept working to find the
fish and at the last minute, it worked out. We
are already talking about booking a couple of
days with you next year. Hope the fishing
stays good for you. Thanks again and we
will be in contact with you in the future.
the great fishing.
Terry and Steve.
I just wanted to drop you a line
and let you know what a great time we had
out there with you. I am hoping to get
back out to see
you at least once or twice before the end of
the year and go get me “the one that got
away”. I will carry a vendetta for
that fish to
my grave! Thanks again, the day was a
great one for John and myself and we
appreciated your expertise, humor, and time.

I would like to take this
opportunity to thank you and to let any of your future clients know
about the success that my clients and myself have had with you over the
years. I have used Gene as a guide for about six years. During
this time spent fishing with Gene, we have always managed to catch a lot
of fish but more important to me is that I always have a great time with
When I take customers I know
that Gene will go out of his way to see that they are treated well. It
is really simple you call Gene
tell him how many, the extent of the guests fishing experience, when you
will arrive the day that you will be departing and Gene will handle the
rest. Now I have spent six years training Gene, do not ruin him,
and make him take care of your backlashes while you fish with his rod
and reel. (He tends to pick them out faster that way)

I first started bringing my
customers to Lake Fork in 1990 and you were one of the five guides we
had on that first trip. Since then I have brought customers back to Lake
Fork every year and have used up to 10 guides per trip. In fact we
had two trips in 1993, because ten of my customers wanted to do some Jig
fishing, because of the size and quantity of the Bass they had caught
with you on earlier trips. I have been very pleased with the manner in
which you have handled everything from the guides you choose to the the
marinas we have fished out of and the motel arrangements. I have had
over 100 of my customers on these trips, and they
all enjoyed each trip.
P.S. I’ll never forget the
trip with you and my customer from D.W.I in Oklahoma City when we caught
13 Bass weighing 80 lbs., before noon. Bill Fleming didn’t either,
because D.W.I and Wix Filters were back the next year!
I just arrived back in
Dallas... Drinking a beer and resting a little.
Before anything, I want to thank you for the
great 3 days
of fishing we have! I enjoyed too much... you're
a great professional! I'm attaching the photos
that you ask me to send. There's others, but I
think these are the better ones.
Best regards and see
you soon (next year, I hope).Thanks
