  Professional Student Testimonials

“I’ve had the pleasure of instructing with Lois and she’s a terrific fisherman and teacher. She’s patient, extremely knowledgeable, and has an easy going style that makes everyone comfortable right from the start.”
Cathy Beck

“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.”
Lisa Cutter

“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).”
Mel Krieger

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.” 
Jan & Carole Kurahara

“On a stream in PEI, on a river in New Zealand, 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, I had a great time meeting you and learning from such a great teacher. As they say, a true professional can make difficult things look easy and you sure make it look effortless. I had a great time today and really look forward to doing it again soon.
Have a great weekend and I'll see you soon. I will be recommending you to anyone else I know who wants to learn this craft from a true angler.”

I can't tell you enough how much I appreciated, how much I enjoyed having such a warm, skilled, instructor (and with such patience) teach me something that was so different from the way I was used to fishing. You have brought out a new excitement and energy to me - I love to learn!!!!"
