We love to hear what our guests have to say!

Dear Skeed and Sharon,
“Your guides were terrific – Paul, and Gordy were a total pleasure to be with and appreciated their patience and pointers on how to be a better fly caster- you can tell Gordy that it had to be the Rod – what else could it be! I couldn’t ask for a better group of guests at the lodge-they were all fun to be around- I can’t wait to come back!!!” – Your friend David “THE FISH WHISPERER”

Hey Skeed and Sharon, and crew,
“The trip was the high light of my life up until this point. Nowhere could I expect to find friendlier people and better fishing. I did catch quite a few very nice rainbows that will go down in my personal record book for safe keeping, the memories will remain forever. It was never as much about the catching as it was about just being there. I would not change a thing. I gained a lot of information from this trip and I am sure that it will translate into a few good paintings.” – Larry, CO

Hi Sharon and Skeed,
“I wanted to write and let you know that Harv and I had an outstanding time at Northern Lights Lodge. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with you, your staff and guides, and the other guests, and hope to head that direction again in the years to come.”

Sharon and Skeed,
“Thanks for everything, especially the new towel sets! The ones I stole from you last time needed to be replaced. It was great seeing you again, and getting our feet under Sharon’s table! Sabine loved it, but is now insisting on a total upgrade of waders and outfits. No more “Brand X” only top of the line from this point on!” – Bob and Sabine

Skeed & Sharon,
“Once again just wanted to thank you both for a wonderful stay with you & your extended family. Bill & I had a great time. All the guides were great….very easy to get along with & very knowledgeable. I know everyone’s getting geared up for the salmon run and I hope that everyone enjoys themselves as much as Bill & I did! Looking forward to getting back up there next year!” –  Best wishes, Rodger

Hi Skeed,
“Yes, it’s true, I’ve only been gone for a few days and I miss you guys and the lodge already! Then, I had a wonderful idea. Wouldn’t it be great to bring my better half up to experience your little slice of heaven in Likely BC …in a few weeks!! Let me know if you can fit us in. Now I can come up twice per year, once with the guys & once with Leslie. Can`t wait! I had a great time and look forward to getting back up there.” – Best regards, SJW

Skeed and Sharon,
“I echo Don’s review of the trip. It was fabulous and made memorable by incredible weather, delicious food and the incredible hard work of your team. You are great people and were a joy to be around. I don’t think the high water detracted from the trip. We could have had perfect water and terrible weather. It’s the vagaries of the great outdoors. I came to BC hoping and hunting for a bull trout for the first time ever. I ended up catching a nice 22″ fish in perfect setting and pulling on a much bigger one that created a story I’ll always remember; Rainbow, Bull and Rainbow, Rainbow, eagle and Rainbow. Thanks for your incredible hospitality. Stay well and take good care of Sharon. We will see you again, you run a great operation!” – Best wishes, Mike

Sharon & Skeed,
“What a delightful time we had! I’ve had to adjust my eating and drinking intake a bit since our visit otherwise I would have needed a wardrobe change. Everything was exceptional. Your gracious hospitality was beyond compare. Don’t hesitate to call on me should you need a personal reference on the experience. Take care and please let me know if your travels bring you through northern California. Thanks again for everything and enjoy the rest of the summer.” – Regards, David.

Skeed and Sharon,
“I want to thank you for everything. We had such a wonderful time. Fishing was great, the food was incredible, and you all (as a group and individually) were the best. Thank you again.” – Jeremy L

Hi Skeed & Sharon,
I brought home an extra 5 lbs. Sharon & Nicki are fantastic cooks and it was very kind of them to accommodate my pescatarian diet. Incidentally, I’ve been having dreams of fishing. And then I wake up. We laughed at your jokes because you have about the quickest wit I’ve seen in years. So refreshing, couldn’t get enough. I love the way you even left us in the airport laughing. It was indeed a sucky man hug. I will never see squirrels without thinking of you. Best,” – Mare & Darrell

Hi Skeed, Sharon, Gerald and Tanya, and everyone else who made our trip Great! We had a great time in spite of the high rivers. Our fishing experience was fantastic.
