This man is the best. Period. I'd like to leave a review that is helpful and at the same time, my own experiences on the Six Mile Water. look. if you're a raw beginner, or if you think you are an expert. you will learn from Stevie. He will work his butt off to get you fish. I regret I cannot fish with Stevie every day. If I could, I would. The man is a wizard. He is so dedicated to his own skills, but also teaching his skills. But not only is he an awesome guide and instructor, he is so very pleasant, funny and awesome. I have fly fished with A LOT of great people in the world. Fly fishing with Stevie again is on my bucket list. It should be on your bucket list too. There really is none better.

I have had the pleasure of having Stevie as a guide in both N. Ireland and Norway, not only a master of his craft but informative and patient with his clients, somehow managing to master that thin line between putting you in the right place at the right time and yet never getting in your way. Massively humorous and yet humble in his manner I have always found fishing with Stevie not so much like fishing with a guide but more like spending a day on the river with your friend, a true gent and a pleasure to fish with anywhere.
Marc Light (Scotland)
Stevie seemed to know the position of every stone on the river bed. I was shown the places to wade safely and lies for good trout. An extensive local knowledge of the river and flies to use ensured a cracking day's fishing which has helped me enjoy my local river more than I would have believed possible. Couldn't recommend highly enough.
Ian Gough (N. Ireland)
I had a great day thank you. Later in the summer I'd like to get another day with you, to spend some time learning about the entomology side of things, and learning what flies to use at different times of the day and year - and fishing as well obviously, I was fascinated by the way you predicted & identified the hatch etc. and would like to be able to do that type of thing. I'll certainly be recommending you and the Sixmile water.
