"Our experience with Cloud 9 Living and the fly fishing guide was off the charts! Great day with a great guide. It was the perfect graduation gift! The guide was knowledgeable and patient. He not only helped us with fishing, but educated us about the region. If you enjoy fishing, I would highly recommend this experience. Can't wait to try another Cloud Living experience or gift one to someone else. "
"Excellent. The process went fine and the guide was the best I have had and I have used many. Bob Dye was professional, friendly, and very experienced. He even helped me find someone to repair a tire on my rental vehicle that allowed me to drive safely out of the mountains when the spare wouldnt make it. Thats going above and beyond. "
"While I fish with Pat & BQA whenever I can, this particular trip was my annual birthday trip. For the past 8 years, I have fished with Pat and the same group of guys to celebrate my birthday. The tradition, the camaraderie, the stream-side companions make it hard for me to imagine spending my birthday any other way. The last two years, since moving from Colorado to Arizona, this has required the additional cost of flying to Denver to continue this tradition. As times get tight, it is natural for people to examine how their money is being spent. I can unequivocally state that a day on the river with Pat Dorsey is worth every cent. I cannot think of a higher endorsement."
