Eli really knows his stuff. He made our trip an unforgettable experience - we did, afterall, catch King Salmon, although we are pretty much beginners. He is really good at what he does and with people. Thank you Eli!

Fishing with Eli is like fishing with a close friend. He's easy going, casual, and extremely knowledgeable about Northwest fisheries.
