Jim's knowledge and execution as a fishing guide enable him to be one of the best on the Kenai River. He had our group reaching our limit everyday day. His focus is incredible. He offers excellent direction and instruction to maximize the fishing experience.

My husband and I have fished with Jim in Alaska (August 2012) and Florida (March 2013). If you want to have a great time, and bring home a ton of fish - he's your man!!! Jim is a true professional, made sure we had a great time, and best of all we caught our limit everyday!!!

A true local fisherman who knows the river like the back of his hand. You can tell he loves his job and it shoews when you hit the water with him. If you come to Soldatna,Alaska be sure to book a trip with him you wont regret it!
