Review from Tracey Ayres

If you haven't met Kirk you're missing a great thing. Learn from him, laugh with him, hell... Laugh at him. He doesn't care.

Great experience, all of it useful, interesting, and entertaining. My high school age son also thought it was great.

Review from Hunny

Kirk is a SF treasure. His knowledge of fish and the fisherman in our corner of the Bay is delightful to hear and even better to see close up and hands on. It was a minor miracle but he produced live specimens right out of the Bay at every stop! I...continued

Kirk is knowledgeable and ebullient, and full of great information. Rubber boots are not necessary unless you want to get in the water too in which case get full waterproof fishing pants too!
Freezing cold wind the day we went and there is a...continued

The time just flew by! We had a great time looking closely at the coastal tide waters, catching crabs and even an eel. (All were thrown back, of course). Great info if you are thinking of anything to do with starting to fish in any way.

This event with Kirk was great, because he is very knowledgeable, sort of a self-made expert on everything about local fishing, history, and biology. We loved the hands-on net casting and helping with the crab hauling. I would do this again, or...continued

Kirk is a well-informed, enthusiastic and entertaining guide, Catching Dungeness crab (which he threw back) with what seemed like very little effort inspired us to give it a try when crab season opens again. It was also fun to watch Kirk...continued
