- “I met John for a Muskie outing and instantly knew he was our kind of guy. Down to earth, totally into all aspects of fishing, professional and once on the water I could see he knew his stuff! He was up front in telling me we would have to work hard for our fish and he was right. The good thing is he produced. He's a great guy and a great spokesman for the sport of Muskie fishing”

- “John Anderson is without a doubt the most knowledgeable and best Musky Guide in all of Canada
He knows The Ottawa River better than he knows the back of his hand”
The Fish'n Canada Show
- “Through my travels with The New Fly Fisher television series I have met a lot of seasoned guides. Few were exceptional in both knowledge delivery and service. John is definitely one of the more exceptional guides I have met.
During the past three years I have had the distinct pleasure of getting to know John Anderson as one of the top Musky guides in the Ottawa region. A passionate angler and instructor, John is imbued with a unique ability to make learning fun. People really enjoy his charismatic warmth and disposition. Of more importance, John understands Musky and other freshwater species like no guide I have every met. On camera he can articulately and authoratively speak about structure, water temperatures, forage food, etc....all scientifically related to fishing. His base of knowledge is impressive and other anglers respect him for his understanding. Of equal importance he is respected for his high morale code and ethics. In television production we are often offered opportunities to take "short cuts" in order to make a show quicker and easier. John never ever attempted to offer anything like this. He constantly impressed us with the manner in which he handled fish, spoke to the camera about catch & release and how important fishing ethics are for the future of the sport.
In closing, John would be an exceptional addition to any Pro Staff. He is an outstanding guide, instructor and personality. I intend having him appear in more episodes of my television series which is broadcast throughout North America to over 70 million households. Please do not hesitate in calling me if you have any further questions.”
