“I have participated in two trips to western Alaska arranged by Ed of Reel Destinations.  Ed’s recommendations as well as his attention to detail are outstanding. The travel arrangements, lodging, gear recommendations, and other key aspects of the trips were handled in a highly professional manner.  Ed communicated with participants on a regular basis before the trips to ensure that deadlines were met and any concerns addressed.  Both the number of fish caught and the number of species encountered exceeded expectations.  I am already looking forward to Ed’s next Alaska trip!”     – Ron B.  Ann Arbor, Michigan

“I have used Reel Destinations for trips to both the Rangeley Lakes region in Maine and Western Alaska. What sets them apart from other travel services is their attention to detail. Pre-trip planning is a breeze – reasonable packing lists, gear and fly recommendations, and timely deadline reminders. Emails and telephone calls were returned promptly and all questions completely answered. They take the uncertainty of a new destination right off the table.”     – Andrew F. Hanover, New Hampshire

“I would like to thank Ed at Reel Destinations, Fly fishing Adventures for the recent adventure he made possible for myself and several friends to the Elk River Valley in Eastern British Columbia. As anglers we are always looking for that trip of a lifetime. The services of Reel Destinations provided that. With Ed’ s help, we found the exact type of accommodations and services we were looking for. After explaining what we like, he provided exactly what we wanted. We couldn’t have been happier with our experience in this part of the world because of his knowledge ahead of time. The two weeks we spent there went very smoothly because of his services.”       – Jim T.  Easthampton, Massachusetts

“My brother and I recently joined Ed from Reel Destinations and 11 other fishermen on a trip to Aniak River Lodge in Alaska.  This trip had been over a year in the planning with Ed guiding us through a step-by-step process in preparing for this adventure.  He made everything so easy and promptly answered dozens of my questions along the way.  I was a beginner fly-fisherman and owned no fly-fishing gear, so I was prepared to primarily use my spinning equipment and maybe try my hand at fly-fishing.  Ed was kind enough to offer to bring extra fly-fishing gear for me to use.  He had even sent me a starter kit of typical flies used on the Aniak.  He also promised that the Aniak River is the perfect place to learn how to fly fish because of the abundance of fish.  By the end of day #1, I had put away my spinning rod and by the end of the week, I felt very comfortable with a fly rod.  In fact, I would now consider myself a converted fly fisherman and I’m ready to purchase my first fly rod & reel.  All told, for the week, I caught well over a hundred fish, including 10 of the 11 species available in the river.  Thanks, Ed, for a truly memorable adventure!”          –  Mike H.  Cicero, Indiana

“Ed, the owner of Reel Destinations, was very thorough on planning my trip. He supplied me with much needed information, especially on what to bring.  He actually sent an email with a detailed list of everything you needed to pack. The travel experience was amazing.  He had a person guide us through the Belize airport, took our luggage and checked us through.  All connections were smooth.  The trip met all of my expectations and then some.  I would highly recommend booking a trip with Reel Destinations.”         – Ron N.  Wolfeboro, New Hampshire

“The remote island Tarpon Caye trip in Belize was a “bucket list” trip for me… it was a great trip from the standpoint of Reel Destinations’ organization, lodge expectations, and especially the effort of the guide, staff, and owners.  Hope to do it again some time!”    -Gene M.  Bradenton, Florida

“Ed at Reel Destinations, Fly Fishing Adventures is competent and pleasurable as an organizer. Every aspect of the trip was well-planned and the communication before and during the trip was excellent. He made my experience of traveling and fishing in Alaska enjoyable and relaxing. I caught all the species of fish that I had hoped to.”
– James L.  Belchertown, Massachusetts

“Ed, with Reel Destinations, can be trusted to deliver a unique fly fishing experience that will become one of your most memorable life adventures.  All trips require a leap of faith, the value from my trip to Alaska continues to payback via memories and new friendships.”       –  Joe H.   Boulder, Colorado

“Your organization and oversight of this trip to Andros was remarkable and totally professional while at the same time personal and caring. I would recommend Reel Destinations, you and your trips to anyone interested in a well put together adventure with attention to details and both thorough pre-planning and follow-through.  Our group managed four or five double digit bonefish during our stay and caught many others that qualified as lifetime trophies.  I really enjoyed being part of your group and look forward to joining you on future trips not just because of the terrific dollar value you offer but because of the degree of concern and care you show every guest.  Everything went smoothly and worry-free. I can’t thank you enough for hosting our group.  Your operation is absolutely the best organized with wonderful attention to every detail. Simply stated, the quality and value offered by Reel Destinations cannot be surpassed. Thank you for everything…… especially your personal caring for each one of us on the trip.”     – Dean C.  Shrewsbury, Massachusetts

“The Aniak River Lodge fishing trip with Reel Destinations was nothing short of excellent.  All air travel, accommodations, gear packing lists, advanced information were timely and professionally delivered.  Meals were great, accommodations very comfortable, and the fishing incomparable.  I literally landed hundreds of fish comprised of 11 different species; five different salmon, char, Dolly Varden, northern pike, leopard rainbow trout, arctic grayling, and sheefish.”     – Ken A.  Leverett, Massachusetts
