"My trip to Alaska West was my seventh with Yellow Dog, and I have booked an eighth trip to Crooked Island in March. Yellow Dog always represents the destinations accurately and in a manner that's both fair to the lodges and to its customers. The personal touches, such as phone calls before the trips and quick responses to all concerns or questions, make me feel Yellow Dog is taking care of me and really wants me to have a fun, successful trip. I have great confidence in Yellow Dog and feel they are a very accomplished group of traveling flyfishers who have been there and done that, so I take their advice and recommendations seriously. They're are just a great bunch and I'd recommend them to anyone"

“Yellow Dog as a company is comprised of a diverse group of folks – all experienced professionals in their fields. With backgrounds encompassing the entire spectrum of fly fishing travel, their staff and their dedication to the task at hand creates a benchmark by which all outfitters, guides and fly shops should be measured. When one of my customers inquires about a destination fishery, I immediately send them directly to Yellow Dog.”
- Dan “Rooster” Leavens
“I wanted to write you a quick email to let you know how much I enjoyed my recent trip with Yellow Dog. Truly a trip of a lifetime! I can be a tough critic and I have nothing but the highest praise for Yellow Dog. Every aspect of the trip far exceeded my expectations. Count me in to go on any fishing trip that Yellow Dog is hosting. Thank you to you and Yellow Dog for giving me one of the best fishing vacations ever!” – Pam J. (San Francisco, California)
“While nowadays it seems like customer service is a dying quality, the Yellow Dog team proved to me that it still exists! I’m sure your already aware of this but I wanted you to know that your staid is highly skilled, extremely knowledgeable and professional on all levels. You’re lucky to have such a great group of people working with and representing Yellow Dog! Please let your team know that their efforts don’t go unrecognized. I look forward to working with you guys again on all of our future fly fishing destinations.”
- Sam S. (Boise, ID)
"Yellow Dog’s talented staff are at the absolute top of the travel game. They doled out heaps of honest advice based on first-hand experience and put together an incident-free trip with every detail covered: no small feat, given that the trek to St. Brandon’s encompassed 21 hours and 9 times zones by plane and an additional 26 hours by boat! There is a very good reason why so many people that travel with Yellow Dog are repeat clients!"
- Stephen N. (Norfolk, VA)
"Yellow Dog was exceptionally helpful for this very complicated trip. Mary Pat was a star in holding my hand throughout."
- Rick H. (New York, NY)
“In all of my prior dealings with Yellow Dog, I have found a first-class operation that is very much focused on the client. I have to confess that I was particularly impressed by the materials you sent me on the flies and equipment I would need in Belize when I booked with you before. I’ve booked with numerous outfitters in the past, and you were the first and only one that was pro-active enough to supply me with this information without me asking! Small detail but SO very much appreciated!”
- Jim H. (Miami, FL)
"When it comes to taking or sending my clients fishing around the world I book all of my travel and logisitcs with Yellow Dog. Yellow Dog offers numerous locations and they know each destination intimately. When it comes to international angling, they are the masters of detail. My trips always run smoothly - from start to finish!"
- Jeff Currier
"I have been reading about Kamchatka for the past 10 years or so from emails and fly fishing magazines. To me it was only a dream until I met the Yellow Dog crew at the Lancaster, PA Fly Fishing Show last winter. Your staff said to me – why not? After several phone conversations and a hundred questions which you all answered - I was in. Yellow Dog was there from start to finish: Answering everyquestion, guiding me through visa processing and paperwork, and being there on the trip to make sure that everything was perfect. The trip turned out to be more than I expected – the fishing, the views, the people at camp, and of course Yellow Dog’s ever-constant looking out for everyone in the group (especially me ... being 71 ½ years old!)
– Dick F. (Bowie, Maryland)
"I want to first say how happy I was with Yellow Dog and your staff. As you know, I had used other booking agencies for many years on trips around the world. After our last trip, I will now be using Yellow Dog for all of our family and personal trips. Your written materials for pre-trip planning are VERY good. And perhaps the biggest aspect that sets you apart from other companies is the personal contact before and after the trip on all levels. I am 100% happy and satisfied with the services of Yellow Dog."
– Kevin Y. (Albuquerque, New Mexico)
"Every time I travel with Yellow Dog, I am blown-away with the overall level of customer service, the attention to detail, and the unbelievable information packet that is sent out for each and every destination. To get this level of service and such detailed information included in a trip package for no extra cost is both amazing and unprecedented. Keep up the great work Yellow Dog!"
- Cpt. Bruce Chard (Big Pine Key, Florida)
"My wife and I have fished Andros for many years, but the way Yellow Dog handled this trip from start to finish was superb. We had such a great time and caught so many BIG fish, that we booked a return trip before we left for home."
- Richard and Doreen (Yardley, PA)
"We had a great time on Christmas Island. My expectations were exceeded. The Villages was really great and the people were extremely accommodating. A great trip with great friends and we made new friends. Awesome! Yellow Dog has been great to work with. I will have no trouble recommending your services to others!”
- Roger G.
"Amazing and addicting. Already checking the Yellow Dog site for future trips, but would love to return to Egdorfs in the near future. Yellow Dog was more than helpful in planning and made the trip even more enjoyable by taking away all of the stress. I cant thank everyone enough for making this trip such a great experience."
