We had such a fabulous experience fishing with Brady! He’s great with the kids and we will definitely be returning next summer! Everyone had fun, including mom who wasn’t too keen to try. 😂

Inredible guide! Brady found us 5 different species of fish! He had all the right answers for what the fish wanted. A trip my daughter and I will not forget. Thanks Brady!
