"My dad and I fished the Cascades through a guided tour from the Homestead. A great day out for fishing and scenery made all the better due to our brilliant guide (Donald Essex).
Well worth a visit."

"My son, nephew and I went to the Homestead for fly fishing in May 2011. We chose The Homestead because it was part ov the Orvis fly fishing locations. We had a memorable and wonderful experience.
Nick was our guide and he was very experienced and savvy fly fisherman -- and also a great teacher.
Highly recommended and worth the trip to the Homestead, which is also lovely."
