Here is a nice blurb about John Randolph from Fly Fisherman magazine and his visit to Marabou. While I am sure he has a gift for making you wish you were him he has undoubtedly fished some great properties and has a reputation ot maintain.
The Marabou fishing operation includes some of the best, and most extensive, streams that I have fished in my 30 years of experience with Fly Fisherman magazine. The trout are wild and healthy; the hatches are abundant; the streams are restored and unpressured; and the trout are relaxed and eager to take the fly."
Last Friday, July 13, Marabou team hosted Mr. Randolph for lunch at the River House Lodge and, of course, an afternoon of fishing in the Elk River. John is one of the most impactful members of the fly fishing industry, his magazine being the most widely read and respected periodical of its genre. He was also impressed with Marabou’s stream redevelopment efforts: “Equally important, is the eco-friendly paradigm that drives this new development. The professional stream restoration is an example: It demonstrates what healthy habitat can do for a trout stream after years of inadvertent abuses. It is a prime example of the "New West" and the TLC that enlightened, restorative management is bringing to the trout streams of the Rockies. In fact, the Marabou development overall is a prime example of the new environment-friendly lifestyle that most Americans are seeking.” The following day, Randolph spent the day fishing on some of the 50 miles of private water Marabou has at North Park - water available to all Marabou owners.
