 Let's see... First time I ever met Greg Amiel from Fishing4Tails was back in November of 2008 at a Walleye Tournament on the Bay of Quinte. My buddy Mike introduced me to Greg. It was a brief moment, maybe about 10-15 minutes at the most. Just a simple "Hi, nice to meet you, sorry that I caught more than you"hahaha - just kidding Greg

Who would know, that in 2009 I've probably fished well over 200hrs with him, and hope there will be more before the year is up.

Greg Amiel has shown me many techniques that one would probably take years to learn, and call it their program. Even though when I go out in my boat, I still like trying my own way of fishing, I always have a bit of Greg's program going on....

I'd have to say the best experience I had in 2009 so far was trolling for some Kings on Lake Ontario with Greg. There was a strong storm approaching and we knew we didn't have much time to fish that morning. I think we launched around 5:30am and got set up by about 6:00am. 2 riggers and 2 wires rods out the boat....I don't think there was 10 minutes that we were able to sit down and talk...I don't know exactly how many hits we had, but I can tell you that we had over 30 hits on both the riggers and the wire rods, and I know we landed approx. 25 Salmon...the storm finally hit us hard around 9:30am. . . .yes 9:30am and we saw the lighnting hit the lake about 1000yrds from the boat, Greg and I packed up as fast as we could, and while I was pulling rods out of the holders to lay them down in the boat, Greg was already on plane doing at least 30mph??? I could say that the rush from all the action from fishing those 3 plus hours were as intense as it was when we were running in to port to get out of the storms path. Oh yea, did I mention we only fished a bit over 3 hours....

I also had the pleasure of fishing a couple of Scotty Tournaments with Greg. That's when I saw the Greg Amiel of Fishing4Tails get down to business. I became so tense and too serious and almost forgot what fishing was really about. But when there is serious prizes at stake, you need to get serious, and still try to have a bit of fun. I'd have to say we did very well considering it was my only Salmon tournaments that I've ever fished. We took 2nd place in the first tournament we fished together, and took 3rd place on Big Fish Friday, and then also took biggest Salmon for all Scotty Tournamnets for 2009 in the second tournament we fished. So all in all we took in over $8,000 in cash and prizes. . . not too shabby in my books...actually it was amazing considering each tournament had over 30 boats....

I really thank Greg for asking me to be part of his "Team Fishing4Tails" in both those Scotty Tournaments. It was an experience that I will never forget.

All I can say, if anyone has the chance to fish with Greg Amiel, don't let it pass by. You'll regret it for ever. Greg has shown me Salmon, Walleye, Lakers, Smallie, Panfish, and many more. . .the experience and learning curve is amazing. . . .Even if fishing is tough that day out, Greg has some good knowledge and past experiences that he loves talking about and offers so much. I'm proud to call Greg Amiel my friend. He has a wonderful family that supports him and loves him, as he supports them and loves them as well.

Greg, Thank you for an outstanding year, I think you deserve a little bit of praise.

Thank you,
Arnaldo de Sousa

I ask myself what makes a good fisherman, PASSION. Greg has that without a doubt. Ive met Greg a few times. Although a few mutual friends tell me we need to fish together we have yet to be in the same boat.. Greg is a good dude with a wealth of knowledge.

Simply put, Greg is both a first class fisherman and person. He is the real deal.
