Customer Reviews

I'm an avid fisherman and enjoy using a guide service 2-3 times a year. Normally, I stick to guides that I have some expirience with or come recommended from a friend. In this instance, I felt comfortable purchasing the groupon after checking Swanny's website to confirm that he carried the appropriate licenses and insurance for a Washington State Guide. My 13 year old son and I met Swanny for an incredible morning of fishing. He took a lot of care to make sure we had an incredible time. We're already looking forward to our next opportunity to go fishing with Swanny!

This guide, Bill Swan, knows the best places and times to fish. He is a professional. We caught fish when few others did. Although I didn't catch one of those lovely sprinters, I loved being on the water with family and friends. Patricia M
