Spring Steelhead

Out with a bang

Great finish for the McKay group today! While the weather certainly didn't through us any favors, solid steelhead fishing made up for our short comings. Pictured is Bill with a beautiful hen steelhead he caught prior to lunch.  Capt. Steven Kuieck...

Don’t Be Deceived…

This splash of morning sunlight was all Mother Nature saw fit to send us today. Apparently, she thought snow,  unrelenting high winds, and frigid temps would be her gift, such as it was, to us today.  As Steve wrote in his post, "Brrr!"  The first...

Corporate Escape

We do a lot of corporate trips every week—today was no exception. Seeing folks not familiar with fly fishing  stretch there legs, build as a team, and genuinely appreciate our craft as a fresh new venue is something that never gets old to me.  Mark...
