Hi Paul and Jude, We are now home and have been trying to get back into our normal routine, which is difficult after such a stimulating trip. Thank you for all that you did for us. Anne was particularly appreciative of Paul’s instruction and Jude’s friendship. It was memorable in every way. On the stag front, I have surveyed the house and think that in the place where he is most likely to end up, he should have his head turned to the right so we can think of it as the mirror image of how I last saw him standing. We will always think of you as fabulous friends who shared some terrific adventures with us, no doubt you occupy that role for many people, but you are very good at it and made our trip special. Thank you again and stay in touch. Cheers.

Hi Paul, I get a report from all my clients on their NZ trips and thought you would enjoy these comments from Andy Baxter excerpted from his report: The big event was Paul. Don, this young man has to be on my very short list as the best guide I have ever had, and I’ve had a bunch. Now, at the end of the day, it’s all about the fish, and I know that — rare that someone complains about the guide if the fishing is great, and rarer still that the guide gets high grades if the fishing is poor. And we had as good a 4 days as one can have. But this guy is the best. Every category. Personality, knowledge, access to water, hard-working, great coach, high energy, and flexible. Just sensational. You need to fish with this guy yourself, which I know you haven’t. Incidentally, he was clear about the fact that he would not show you some of the water that he took us to because of your role as an outfitter and that the word would spread. Why he elected to take us where he did is beyond me. We did have a good first day, and we delivered the goods, but still, it seemed like he gave us the best he had in his arsenal. The rainbow attached was 10-11 pounds and took about 20 minutes and 300-400 yards of downstream racing. Paul gave us textbook New Zealand fishing and we will never forget it. It was the centerpiece of the whole trip.
Paul & Jude, Just wanted to say thank you very much for a wonderful time, hunt and over all New Zealand experience during our stay with you. It was great to have such a nice team working with us on this stay and we really appreciated all the well organized work that went into this hunting adventure for us both, a sincere big thank you and we look forward to coming again sometime soon. Great trophies, great food and accommodation, a very high standard of guiding, well done!

Just a short note to thank you for a wonderful week at Glendeer Lodge. The accommodation was superb but of course the highlight was the fly-fishing with Paul. Paul’s ability to spot fish was incredible – even under adverse light conditions. It meant that we were casting to a specific fish throughout our five day stay – hardly any prospecting or blind casting. Many times I could not see the fish even after Paul had identified its lie for me. I must confess there were times I doubted his spotting ability only to be proved wrong with a subsequent take! His prowess at spotting was only matched by his patience and his active approach to the fishing – beyond anything we had experienced before. Being a husband and wife team who only fly-fish once a year, if that, our casting ability could do with some improvement (that’s an understatement) – but Paul was extremely forgiving and supportive – nothing was too much trouble. Several times he rigged a double fly combo only to have me render it undeliverable after the first cast. He would patiently re-rig the whole thing without a moan. The trout gets two, maximum three goes at a fly and then he would change it – he was the most active and innovative guide we have been with. He took us to some amazing locations and we were always the only fishermen there – six different rivers in five days of fishing – to quote Chris Hole, it was “Heaven on a Stick”! We had a great experience and can’t wait to come back.
