Excerpts from New Zealand's "Troutfisher" Magazine, April/May 2004 Authored by Mel Hollis, Dunedin, South Island New Zealand

... I almost deleted the unfamiliar e-mail address as more spam... That would have been one of the biggest mistakes of my life. I would have missed out on the opportunity to spend a couple of days with Mitch Bangert, a professional fishing guide from Wyoming, USA. Our first days fishing following behind Mitch I thought I had spotted a fish he had missed and put my dry fly in front of it. It moved away and my comments got a laugh and advice to cast more towards a small willow tree close by, as there was another fish just under it. His eagle-eyed powers of observation hadn't missed either of those two fish; he knew they were there. He had just left them alone for me to have a go at, What a gentleman!

Reflecting on our two days together I had been given an opportunity to fish along side a true artist with a fly rod. His skill at casting a fly was one of grace and his relaxed style of movement both in and out of the water was obviously honed by many years of practice, something that I could only dream of achieving in my own lifetime. I had just spent two days in the company of a true expert, a master practitioner in the art of fly fishing and I would be the better for it! My sincere thanks Mitch, you are one of Mother Natures Gentlemen!

Our family visited Mitch and Debbie at Harrison's Guest House in August of 2003. We had a wonderful, relaxing weekend with great food, great companionship, and the company of a fabulous fly fisherman! The location is top notch for fly fishing enthusiasts, and the guest house is cozy and family friendly. Mitch has such passion for his sport that it is infectious to everyone around!
Best wishes for a wonderful experience with Mitch and Debbie in Saratoga Springs!
Mark, Amy & Zoë Hopkins

Mitch, Excellent fishing in all waters visited and got to enjoy them while in the company of the best guide in the universe! A convivial bugger as well!.
Harley Shaver

I have been fishing with Mitch for over 10 years and there is not another person in the world that I'd rather share a piece of water with. I learned more in my first year fishing with him than I had in my first 30 years of life. He is a scholar, poet and a champion to all things finned!

To Whom it may concern, Fishing with Mitch: Lively times in the club house; great craftsmanship on the river; patient teacher to all. Unforgettable experience and beautiful fish too.

Hi Mitch,
This is to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed both of our visits at your guesthouse. For you to find a hidden lake where you caught six brookies in 20 minutes is amazing. On the trip when we were able to float the river I loved your naturalist tales from "spinner falls" to "dead drifts" and how that knowledge led to bringing many good fish to hand. Most of all we enjoyed your relaxing good-natured hospitality. We feel a friendship that means this will be an annual event. Good luck.
