Outstanding Experience -
I just returned from a day and half lesson with Orvis Guide Matt Thomas. Honestly, it could not have been a better experience. Not only did I learn a great deal, Matt put me on great fish. It was truly a beautiful setting and I walked away with the confidence to move to the next level. I am hooked! Thanks Matt, I could not have had a better beginning! See you again in the Fall!
