Fish a long dates, Spey Workshops

Hey,

Everyone wants to spey fish better, here are two ways to get started.

Fish a long dates

A fish-a-long is essentially a guided fishing day where I take a bit off the price and fish right a long with you.  You will get help with casting, presentation, gear and fly selection and tips on figuring where your time is best spent.

I have fish a long dates on May 1,8, and 15.  We also have lodging if you would like.

Pricing 1 angler $275.00

2 anglers $400

3 anglers $500

Like all our guided trips lunch gear and flies included.

 

Spey fishing Work shop

This is a full day workshops where the main focus is learning effective spey fishing techniques. We will float a section of river, break down the runs, discuss gear and flies and really work on effective presentation.

The focus of the day will be growing your skills and understanding of effective spey fishing, not necessarily putting a fish on your line.

Cost is 150.00 per angler, three angler limit

If you have a group of three we can work a rate on lodging

Dates,

May 2, 9,30, and 6

Open Dates, plus spring chinook

A few open steelhead dates, for a single angler,  April 3rd, 14th and 15th. I have plenty of dates open after the 15th

And then there is springer season.  Spring salmon are about the best eating animal that swims in the ocean, and the Sol Duc has a nice run of hatchery fish.

I do guide fly trips for spring salmon, but if you really want to take one home you better be ready to fish with hardware.

To get things going I have a special rate

Here is the deal, two anglers, with lodging, $450.00 a day.

Best spring salmon dates are April 15 to May 20.

This rain we are having is bringing in a decent shot of fresh steelhead, if it stops we might get down south one more time this year

Open dates, low water, upcoming events

Whoops,

We finally got some great fishing weather and I just got cancelled for tomorrow and the next day, march 12 and 13

So if ANYONE WANTS TO CATCH SOME STEELHEAD EMAIL NOW!!!

Stop, nope, thanks, they re-booked.  But everything from here down is still true.

 

I have done a poor job of posting for a while, to be honest, when we are all booked, and the fishing is good, I am a little hesitant to encourage any more crowding in March.

There is plenty to post about other than good fishing, I will try to stay on it a little better.

Very, very,very, low water has made for some very interesting fishing for some great fish.

Some sight fishing, some dry fly fishing and some spectacular walk in fishing for very bright fish.  Many fish  swinging with one handers.  All in all fun times, but the fish could use a bit more water, and the mountains some snow.

I have some April dates open, April 19,21,22,24

High water, pink eye, and weasles

Not quite the three horsemen of the Apocalypse.

Still, a half dozen river  blow outs, a household case of pink eye, plus a brazen daylight weasel attack on our chicken flock, you start to wonder who you upset.

Now the water has dropped, the eyes have cleared and the weasel has met his maker

I have some open dates!

I have a spot in my boat for a single angler for the following days, Feb 22 through the 27th.  The guy who has the other seat booked prefers to fish from the boat but I am sure would be willing to mix it up on a couple of days.

Give me a call if you can make it out.

Thanks Russ, Enjoying the Accel 7100

Could you get a day off?

I have a few dates, Ryan and Caleb have a few, or you could wait until the crowds show up in March.  Look hard at your schedule the first 2 weeks of February, and drop me an email if you can phone in a sick day or two.

 

Early fish are are to hold

Early fish are hard to hold

After this there really won’t be much left of our calendar other than cancellations, BUT, after April 15 I will be doing weekly spey instructional’s and some fish a longs for about a month, drop me a line if you are interested.

oops you caught a big one

This time of year its a bit trickier to stay on the fish, but the fish tend to be awesome.
