Kurt, all I can say is Wow! The quality of the fisheries we visited are absolutely what you described and more, it's one of the best kept secrets around. The fish both Steelhead and Browns were big and strong. I also want to let you know that your professionalism and passion for the sport is second to none. I have travelled all across North America and beyond and I have met and worked with many guides in the past 25 years and I can honestly say your in the upper 1% of all the guides in the industry. It was a quality trip with a quality guy so thanks again.

I am already planning my next trip out there from Colorado as I am sitting in Syracuse airport as we speak.

I can't wait to get you down to Costa Rica for monster Tarpon!

Top notch guide service!

Victory Outdoor Sports is the place to go if you want a true trophy trout fishing experience. The lodge is a perfect mix of a fish camp and home witch makes a few days there a breeze. Along with the great fishing and wonderful lodge you also have a great fisherman and true sportsman. Fishing with Kurt is like fishing with an old friend.

I really can't say enough about the excellent services provided when you fish Victory. From line and bait selection to teaching the operation of specialty fishing gear such as center pin or float fishing. The fact that you can show up empty handed and you will be provided with all the gear to catch big trophy fish. The cost is lower than a self guided trip and The memories made are priceless!

I have Fished twice now at Victory and I will certainly be going back for more.Thanks again Kurt and I'll see you on the water soon ....Fish On!

great trip!

We had a great trip! Kurt put us on a lot of fish. My boy, myself, step father and cousin all had a great time fishing with Kurt.

A lifetime experience!

My son and I booked a two day fishing trip for steel head, trophy browns and
rainbows. Our first day we caught 3 nice rainbows, 3 steelheads and 13
browns over 20 inches. We caught one brown over 10 lbs. The fishing was
awesome, the lodge was a palace. But the icing on the cake was how wonderful
our guide and owner of Fish Victory was. He was enthusiastic and passionate
about making this a great trip for us. He was knowledgeable and a super nice
guy that made you feel like you were important to him. My son and I are
already thinking about our trip back next year. Great trip and an affordable
life time experience. Thanks Kurt.

November Fishing

My Grandpa and I drove up from Rochester for the weekend exctied to hammer some trout. The first day (11/19/11) was beautiful and was 50F with a slight southernly wind aiding in our drifting. Thanks to the first day of shotgun season we had an entire bank to ourselves. We got into some nice Coho's and several browns and rainbows. After we got back, Kurt set me up in a blind on his property to see if I could go for the grand slam and bring home a buck as well! Overall, you couldn't have asked for a nicer couple of days. I'm a big bass fisherman and always wanted to learn how to fish the trout runs, Kurt did just that! I went to Gander the same day I got home and will be going out to the lower Genny this weekend. I highly recommend Victory Outdoor Sports, you will not be disappointed! -Connor H. Rochester NY


When Kurt mentioned in his cheerful manner that he suggested we rise at 4:45 to get "the first bite" I was asking myself - "How much do I like fishing"? Of course I was here mainly to support my 12 year old angler who adores fishing with a passion, As the good parents, my husband and I would come along for the ride and hopefully catch a few fish. Truth be told, we all had a great time especially being on the shores of the creek before the sun rises waiting to cast into what we hope were a large school of hungry fish.

This weekend package is a blast. Kurt is a wonderful guide. He is warm, caring, conscientious and dedicated to the success of each of his clients. He never tired of de-tangling our line so we can be casting as soon as possible. And the house is great - cozy and attractive and clean!

Thanks for a great time Kurt.
We will all be back.

Fishing With Kurt March 2011

My nephew and I were lucky enough to go fishing with Kurt in early March of this year. We weren't sure what to expect from this Christmas gift but we couldn't have had a greater time. From the initial phone conversations to set a date, Kurt's main concern was that we have a great time, learn some new skills and of course catch fish. Our gift included lodging as well as two days of guided fishing. The accommodations were perfect. We had a warm, dry place to end our days with modern kitchen and bath facilities. Not what you would expect from a little cabin in the woods. Kurt was more than willing to share fishing "secrets" and pass on his knowledge to those of us who are less skilled. We fished from sun up to sunset for both days and moved around to all the best spots. It was a great two days of fishing with a super guy. I would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone and I know we will definitely be back for another fishing adventure with Kurt. Thanks again for a great trip.

One of our best fishing trips ever!

My father and I have gone on countless trips together ever since I could hold a fishing rod in my hands. We have had so many great memories from our fishing trips over the years, but this trip will no doubt rank right up there with one of the best ever.

We couldn't have asked for anything better in the few days we were up there. The lodging was great and the fishing was fantastic. I'm pretty sure that Kurt put us on fish every place that he took us to. We landed close to 25 fish in two days and I can't forget to mention that it was also the first week in January. That in itself is a token to Kurt. His expertise in scouting out his spots and finding out what the fish were biting on was something to admire. He truly loves the sport of fishing and it shows in the results.

My father and I are no doubt hooked on Victory Outdoor Sports. We will definitely be coming back again soon and probably with some of our friends next time.

Thanks again Kurt. You're a great person and we look forward to fishing with you again.

A perfect combination of professionalism and good old fashion fun!

Fishing with Kurt and his staff was one of the best fishing experiences I have ever had. With comfortable lodging and unmatched experience in the local fishery, Victory Outdoor Sports is everything that it claims to be and more. The weekend was characteristic of a fishing trip you might have with a group of buddies yet contained a level of professionalism found in most top level guide services.Other than endless laughs over great meals, the trip was chock full of easy-to-learn instruction on some of the best equipment available. In addition to hands-on instruction, there was a good amount of information shared about the area, fishing trends, local species, various baits and feeding tendencies. Kurt conveyed this information in a way that made it seem like you were trading tips and secrets with an old fishing buddy.

The end result was an experience that left me feeling fulfilled in every way. We caught lots of fish including my biggest trout ever, a Brown measuring 30.5 inches and weighing 16 pounds! Thanks again Kurt, I can’t wait to go back!
