Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It was nothing but a pleasure from my side and thank you for the interesting discussions, also hearing of how life is in South Africa. Again thank you for the great review.

I'm an experienced fisherman, but new to the region (Sørlandet) and the style of fishing here. After a break of many years I contacted Ryan (Anglerpilot) for some guidance to the local waters and places that suit my style of fishing. I found a very engaging, warm and versatile guide who has helped me get on track with impressive local knowledge about places and spots to fish, with a depth of biological knowledge to boot. Fully recommended.

It was nothing but a pleasure sharing my knowledge with you and I do hope it improved your chances of enticing the challenging sea trout. Hopefully we will again meet in the future.

I had the opportunity to spend a half day with Anglerpilot while I was on a fishing trip in Scandinavia.
Before our day together, Ryan helped me find some great spots in his area, so I had a blast with my kayak even before we met.
We fished the region of Kristiansand, packed with beautiful sights, so there was always something to check out when we were travelling from one spot to another.
I wanted to catch seatrout and seabass, but the fish were picky and had other ideas that day. With a quick change of plans Ryan helped me catch many cods, pollocks, and one of the best fighters and most underrated targets, the ballan wrasse.
I had an excellent experience with a top professional, great chap who’s always up for a good laugh.
Thanks for everything, Ryan!

Thank you for being my first ever customer from Hungary and I am so glad my tips worked for you before our time together. The bass and sea trout really didn't want to play that day but lucky the other species did! P.S. thank you for the interesting and inspiring chats about ultra lightweight fishing.

Great time with Angler pilot and guide Ryan. We would highlight the professional approach in all respects - quick communication, response to our goals, quality equipment (boat and fishing tools) and a generally nice friendly approach. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced angler, we can only recommend fishing with Anglerpilot.

My family and I recently spent half day salmon fishing with Ryan. He is extremely friendly, professional and knowledgeable, and we all had a great time with him!

He was also great to work with while planning our trip to Norway, as he made sure that our experience was tailor made to our needs, and also gave us lots of tips on places to visit in the area.

Highly recommend!

Thank you so much Sonia and I really enjoyed our time together. It was so interesting talking to you all and this one of the reasons why I do what I do, the great people I meet. Greetings from a snowy Norway.

If you're going to Kristiansand I cannot recommend sea fishing with Ryan highly enough. Ryan is an absolute gentleman and he took me from a complete rookie to a confident fisher in no time. Ryan is a very flexible tour operator, he picked me up close to my hotel and he knew all the best places to catch the particular types of fish I was looking for. Honestly a once in a lifetime experience with a gentleman who makes it feel more like friends fishing together than a fishing service!

Me and my wife (both not that experienced in fishing) have had a great time! The guide really knows his way around the beautiful lakes we visited to fish for Trout and Perch. We cuaught a few fish and had lunch together in the wild. The contact was very good, we laughed and talked much.

The guide leads you towards some beautiful fishing spots where you can fish and enjoy the nature around it. The guide was very helpful with learning my wife to cast with a rod.

I can’t speak or find anything negative about this trip and the guide, it just was awesome! I’m hoping to come back once. Thanks a lot!

I was honored to be part of your honeymoon and was so happy that you both caught fish. You're naturally always more than welcome to come back, and you know where I am! P.S. thank you for taking time to write such a great review.

We booked several trips with Ryan. Never did we met, in the past decades, such a great fishing guide. Not only was the communication while planning excellent, also during the trips he was able to make us feel welcome and at ease. His equipment was in top condition (boat, rods etc etc!).
During the days we went out ourselves he was willing to assist us with locations, tips and licenses.
We had a great time, big fun and even bigger fish.
Recommended with an exclamation mark!

I highly recommend Ryan's service. This was a wonderful experience, not just for the fishing, which was lots of fun, but also for the experience of being on the water in Norway, enjoying a glorious day, and learning more about the local nature and culture. Ryan is a skilled guide who can adapt his approach to any skill level, and is just a good person to share some time with. While I felt really good about the number and variety of fish I caught, I would have thoroughly enjoyed the experience even without such a productive day.

It warms my heart and gives me a mass of motivation when I read a review as such as yours. I'm so glad you enjoyed my holistic approach where the fish is the central part in getting served with a little bit of everything!

We spent 1/2 day fly fishing with Ryan and we couldn't be more happy with the experience. We fished in a beautiful location and Ryan was extremely helpful and offered some instruction as well. He is very knowledgeable about the area and has an immense passion for fishing and the outdoors.
We would have loved more time with him just to continue getting to know him- he is a super neat guy and a pleasure to be with.
We would highly recommend booking with AnglerPilot and would do it again.
