"Jorge, I would like to thank you very much for the outstanding service you provided on our recent trip aboard the Nemo. As you remember my bag containing all of my flies did not make the connection in Miami. You not only supplied me with some flies to use but you and your crew went to extraordinary lengths to retrieve my bag from Barcelos by boat so that I might have my flies for the second half of my trip..."

"I've taken several trips to the Amazon and none were better than the ones I took with Terry... So let me recommend that you take a trip to fish in Brazil. The fishing is like no place else in the world. And let me also recommend you book your trip with Terry Jertberg and the Amazon Nemo."
