"I have had the great privilege to fish with Jean-Francois Helias on
several occasions. Some of which were on very remote
waters never before fished by Westerners.
Besides Francois' adept skills as an angler, I was most impressed with his uncanny ability to transcend culture and befriend the locals. This proved to be valuable because it always put us on good information that put us on fish. This talent puts Francois in another class of anglers.
