Testimonials for Rick Cox, Dunsmuir, Mt. Shasta & McCloud Fly Fishing Guide

Photo: Happy fly fisherman; Upper Sac fly fishing with Rick Cox"I went trout fishing in September and for steelhead in November with Rick Cox of McCloud Fly Fishing Adventures. He is not only patient, a good teacher to correct mistakes but he also knows WHERE THE FISH ARE. The rivers we visited were absolutely beautiful and, as luck would have it, we fished alone without anyone around. Rick can help both the experienced and neophyte fishers. I can't wait until next year (2012) to experience fishing again with Rick."  - Alston Laughlin

Photo: A happy fisherman: McCloud fly fishing with Rick Cox"Thanks so much for your time and wisdom in the art of Angling. I may have hooked a fish or two, but I believe you have hooked me!"  - Mike McNeil

"Thanks so much for guiding us yesterday—we both had an amazing time.  I can tell you I was hyper-skeptical about going out, but since it was Cearull's gift I did it for him---however, I had a fantastic time and a lot of fun so I'll definitely be doing this again (as will Cearull!). We'll be sure to recommend you to others who may want to visit up there. Thanks!"  - Marko Buric

"And thank you once again for another memorable trip. You are spoiling the boys. They need to go through a few days of picking and tying on their own flies, adjusting their own weight and floats, finding their own spots, and then getting skunked to gain a true appreciation of how much your expertise adds to the trip. We will be back. And I'll let all my fishing buddies know about your wonderful service." - Frank DeRose

"David and I had a truly great day today.....perfect weather, good fishing, good learning experience, good sandwich for lunch and a great
guide." - Mark M

Photo: Upper Sac fly fishing with Rick Cox"Rick, Thanks so much for the great day and lessons learned. I am really excited to get on the water and further develop the skills you taught me. Laura and I hope to be able to come up and book a day with you in the late summer. Cheers."  - Craig Clements

"Rick, Thanks for the pictures and two days instruction. I said you were a taskmaster but that's not really accurate or fair. You were very focused and wanted me to have success. Your efforts paid off on Tuesday. Caught two 18" rainbows and 3 other trout in 2-1/2 hours in the evening...Bob at Ted Fay Fly Shop was just great. I think he loves Photo: Happy fly fisherman; fly fishing with Rick Coxthat fly shop more than fishing! I hope to do a small presentation to my local TU chapter on the McCloud and I will mention you two."  - Neil Williamson

"Dear Rick, Not surprisingly, my friend Pete has been bubbling ever since we returned from yesterday's fishing trip to the McCloud. Having fished in a lot of different places, he thinks it is the most beautiful river he has ever been on. He raves about how patient and companionable you were. As he mentioned, he experienced a lot of things fishing the McCloud that he had never encountered before. His fishing success, as you said, was 'icing on the cake.' Thanks for a great day, filled with the happiest of memories. Tight lines!"  - Bob Haas
