It’s amazing what you can catch in a days’ time fishing with Rob. He is an excellent host and guide! I had the pleasure of fishing with Rob DuPont this past June, and was totally impressed. I’m talking about 100 trout in the box by 8:30 a.m. It was a Father’s Day weekend with Chris Volentine and Forrest Volentine, father and son, who had one of the best Father’s Day ever; and I was there to enjoying the catching as well.
