I would highly recommend a Kayak Fish PA class if you want to learn new or improve fishing techniques, greater paddling efficiency, and to develop the skill of using your kayak as an essential river tool. The best part is that it's hands-on, engaging learning with the probability of catching some nice fish! I'm even considering signing up for another one with my fiance!
“What a pleasure it was!…”
Fished with Juan today and what a pleasure it was. He taught me techniques with both lures and my kayak that I will be able to put to use in the future. I think the best thing a guide can do for you is to teach you things that will make you a better fisherman for the rest of your life. Juan did that for me today and the icing on the cake .... we caught fish too. I highly recommend this class if you want to become a better river fisherman.
“You won’t be disappointed…”
For those of you just getting into fishing out of a kayak, I highly recommend one of Juan's guided trips or his Kayak Fishing Bootcamp! I have attended both and can't list the countless tips I picked up from Juan such as paddling technique, holding position in river current, and pattern development techniques for finding fish. Matter of fact, my personal best smallmouth catch was on one of Juan's guided trips on the Susquehanna ! If you can make the trip to Pennsylvania, take a guided trip. you won't be disappointed!
“Juan exceeded our expectations…”
I think it's important to rate a few factors in this experience: expertise, comfort level, planning, fun, safety, success. In all six categories, Juan exceeded our expectations. He had the entire trip planned out perfectly and watched weather forecasts to adjust our trip accordingly. We immediately felt comfortable with Juan who is easy to get along with and an excellent teacher. He made us feel 100% safe while maneuvering small rapids for the first time.
