Graeme Paxton - Outdoor Life Magazine:
To say that Lake Geneva is a rather large fishing hole is an understatement and anglers who have yet to learn all its possibilities would do well to consider Lake Geneva Fishing Guide Service
Dale Bowman - Chicago Sun-Times:
Over the years Billing has built a stable of over fifteen guides and is considered the best working Geneva Lake.
John Spehn - Chicago Sun-Times:
Billing is a full-time guide on Lake Geneva and is considered one of the best working the Lake. He proved this working under severe fishing conditions this day.
Thomas A. Gaines of BP Amoco:
Thanks again for another great year of fishing for guests at our annual customer event in Lake Geneva. You and your fellow guides provided wonderful recreation, good fishing experience, but most importantly excellent fellowship. Once again, everyone came away with their own "prize" catch. Even if they were old time fishermen or first timers, everyone had a great day. All the guides were true lake historians and provided a superb dialogue on Geneva facts. You can be proud of the service you provide and the traditions you foster on wonderful Lake Geneva. Look forward to seeing you next year!
Bill Cullerton of WGN Radio:
I wanted to let you know that we appreciate the great Lake Geneva fishing reports you give us on our WGN-Great Outdoors Show. You are the most knowledgeable guide that we talk to regarding that wonderful body of water. I can't wait to get out there with you next spring for the big small mouth.
George F. Hennerley of Lake Geneva Chamber of Commerce:
It would be easy to use the size & depth of Geneva Lake as an excuse for no fish, but you and your Lake Geneva Fishing Guide service consistently produce not only fish, but also satisfied customers. Year in and out your knowledge, attitude and quality equipment has brought back clients time and time again. I am writing to thank you for making my job of selling this area to the traveling public a little easier by consistently delivering quality and value to our guests. Good luck in the new year and may all your winds be calm.
Jack Sandner of Chicago Mercantile Exchange:
As we come to a close to the end of the fishing season, I wanted you to know the immense enjoyment you have provided for our family. Because of you, the kids were able to go back to school this fall and tell "true" fish stories. Hours spent hooking Northern, Bluegills, Smallmouth and Largemouth will make for vivid memories during the winter months. You bring an extra dimension to your profession. You guide and teach with excellent results and do so in such a way that you become part of a family. Your "dockside manners" make the experience that much more delightful. Hopefully, we'll get out one more time before winter sets in, but, if we don't, we'll see you in the spring.
John Muszynski of Leo Burnett, U.S.A.:
I would like to take this time to thank you for all your hard work and expert guide service during my past trips with you on Lake Geneva. Your incredible knack to put fish in the boat, coupled with your enthusiasm and love for the sport, makes my business entertainment decisions very easy....let's go fishing. My suppliers (Sports Illustrated, Newsweek, MTV,USA Network, Disney, etc.) have thoroughly enjoyed themselves. For many of them, their trip on Geneva Lake was their first exposure to a professional fisherman and the state-of-the-art equipment you use and endorse. Your sponsors should be very happy with the "advertising" you provide for them. Keep up the good work and I look forward to many more trips with you in the future.
