    Guide fixed excellent shore lunch and volume of fish caught. I have utilized guides during many trips including Alaska, North Tropical Queensland, Australia, Nunnavik area of Canada, Florida, western rivers and Gulf Coast. I've never had a better guide than Larry Babin and I have had some just as good, but guides like Larry aren't the everyday type. He had a main plan, and an alternate plan. He handled the drift boat expertly, and his boat was well set up to handle two people fly fishing. My wife is a beginner and his ability to instruct her was excellent and one could just tell he enjoyed her lack of skill, but eagerness to be instructed. She and I both fed off of that. His knowledge of his water was excellent and his ability to expend the energy to help us have a good time resulted in the main purpose - we caught fish and kept the anticipation of another strike preditable and expected. The flyshop he manages had the best inventory of any privately owned flyshop I've ever been in. He can outfit a child, a woman, or an experienced fisherman with waders, boots, clothing and equipment, as well as those who tie their own flies. These are truely first class people.
