Mike,


I just want to reiterate how much i had a great time with you that day, and i am really looking forward to my next fishing expedition, and perhaps that is the best indication for you of the time i have had?

As a complete novice at fly fishing, I was unsure how much I could get out of just one lesson with Mike Tenner, but by mid-morning, the day was already exciting and really fun. I found it so easy to learn from Mike's careful instructions and observations and by the end of the day I had caught a handful of fish! Mike oozes with experience but he was always able to keep the lessons down to the level that I needed. I thoroughly recommend him, not just for the lessons he gives, but for the whole experience you have with him throughout the day. I only wish I had more time in Tasmania to spend with him.
