“Tim took me and my friends on a guided steelhead trip on the Root River.  I had a great time fishing and chatting with him.  Tim is truly an expert guide and improved my fishing skill.  I went 3 for 6 for some big steelhead in less than 4 hours.  Highly Recommended.”

“Tim made a trip down from Milwaukee to bring me some spawn and ended up throwing me quite a few helpful pointers on steelies.  I've been having success ever since.”
