Excellent guide service!! Satoshi "LEFTY" does know his crafts. My friend and I took a Yellowstone River float. He literally speaks on behalf of the river, so to speak. Then his lunch is definitely the BEST!! He's my go-to guide as well as a good friend and a great teacher of fly-fishing!!

Excellent fishing guide and fly tyer!! He is actually my number one guide in the area. I was impressed with his guide service and tasty lunch. His knowledge and expertise led me to catch many fish of all different species - haha. Over the years, I've used him for spring creeks, Yellowstone Park, Yellowstone River, Madison, and Bighorn river trips to name a few. He does both float and wade trips - and I even got him to guide me on hiking into remote locations to catch some elusive golden trout! I will continue to use him for fun-filled catching fishing trips. A+
