What our guests are saying...

Nick, thanks so much for giving us a special memory and experience in Alaska – your personal touch and information almost made us experts like yourself. I think my photos speak for themselves – they made me famous on the cruise ship because nobody else was able to capture pictures like mine.

Ingrid & Tom Forbes

Nick – we all had a great time last week. You obviously know your stuff and made the day far more than a fishing trip. Everything was just fantastic and all thought it was the highlight of our trip. You live in a beautiful part of the world and I expect we'll be back at some point to explore it further.

Thomas Eichenberger

My husband, son, son-in-law, and 3 grandchildren (20-19-12) spent the day salmon fishing with you. We are home in Iowa now with 50 pounds of frozen salmon! You should hear the dinner time tales about our day of sportfishing with Chasin' Tail Charters, what a great experience!  

Jane McMurray

We're settled back in our routine back here in Texas. 97 degrees, Yuk!  One of our fondest memories of our vacation is the day you took us fishing! We enjoyed talking with you and appreciate all the knowledge you shared.  Our fish arrived yesterday and of course it was on the menu for dinner. Delicious!

Tom and Debra Amundsen

Thanks again for the awesome vacation on July 11th. I wanted to let you know that Ty won snapshot of the week here in Utah as a result of the big salmon he caught. I am going to send you a few videos. We thank you and grateful for a dream come true. Chasin' Tail Charters is the best!

Jen Bright
