Ive had the pleasure of instructing
with Lois and shes a terrific fisherman and teacher.
Shes patient, extremely knowledgeable, and has an easy
going style that makes everyone comfortable right from the
Lois has elevated the art of fly fishing
to a higher level. At oh-dark thirty I have been awakened
to the swish, swish, swish of Lois casting for golden trout
when all normal people are sleeping off the altitude. Her
enthusiasm and energy transcend the normal limits of the sport.
She is my mentor, teacher and friend.
Lois and I have worked together in several
casting clinics. I have found (Lois) her to be a dedicated
and knowledgeable fly-fisher and would not hesitate to recommend
her in any facet of our sport (fly-fishing).
We have had the privilege to have known Lois for
15 years and have fished streams and lakes together. In all
our years of fly fishing, we have met no one who has demonstrated
a greater love for the sport, or has spent as much time on
the water, or caught the sheer numbers of fish as Lois. Her
energy and enthusiasm for the sport continue to amaze us.
Add to that her experience and expertise as a teacher, and
she becomes a fly fishing instructor extraordinaire. If you
have the opportunity to enroll in one of her fly fishing classes,
do it -- you will be all the better for the experience.

anywhere there are trout Lois shares with generosity and knowledge
her passion for the sport that is also an art. To be in her
presence is a pleasure.

Lois Kilburn's love of fishing is
surpassed only by her love of teaching. She is a welcome addition
to the instructor's field.
