A Heads Up for 2018

Bright Winter fish are what we all dream of catching in the cold wet weather!!!

Just a quick note to all those looking forward to 2018. The Winter Steelhead calendar is open and ready to book. After we all get through another tough summer steelhead season, and get through the heat into a cooler season. The one thing I like about the chasing winter fish, No Damn counts, lol. those who have been emailing and texting shoot over some dates and we will get you locked in! Let’s get you on the water. Enjoy

Looking Forward to 2017!!!!

That was the right way to finish a tough season!! Looking forward to a big 2017!!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to an exciting fishing filled 2017!! After being away from life for the past 17 days I am ready to get back at it!!! There are still some openings in all the up coming months but space is getting tight, if you are thinking about booking a trip now is the time! I feel this will be one of AWA’s best years and we here would like nothing more than to get you out on the water!!!

 

Kicking ass in 2017!!!

I also want to thank each and every person that climbed in an AWA boat or a casting pond/class with us as well. Your drive to fish with the best and become better anglers in the process is why I do what I do. So with that I promise to work harder and to teach better in the up coming year! Cant wait for whats to come!!!!! Talk to you all soon!!! Thank you all

Well I have little excuse for the long space between posts and it wont happen like this again. To start I will say the winter season was awesome for the best winter i have ever had. Thanks to all who floated and fished will myself and Caleb. We hope to make next year better for the winter and spring with AWA’s purchase of a jet boat we will be expanding our river reach and will be able to have more available days on the water. So if you missed out this year we will be ready for you, Just lets us know.

getting the job done in tough conditions at times, stay focused through the entired day.

Trout fishing is getting better by the day and dry fly action is not far away.

Trout season is just starting to get going and if you have not booked you salmon fly dates you had better soon er then later. We have had some good days on the water trout fishing already this spring. The river is a bit high and a little cool but the trout seem eager and those willing to get out have been finding reward. lots of the big Bugs seems to be under the larger stones in the shallows of the river, spells for few bugs to be out in the next good set of HOT days.

Nothing like trout that fight as good as your equipment!

Now that SOR (Spey-O-Rama) has come and gone, I will have a bit more time to keep up on post and pictures. This year  was a wild one in San Fran for sure. The wildest wind i have ever seen there in the 7 trips I have made. Smart casts were key big cast were rare not the norm. I had to smart this year to even qualify as the wind blow out my left side casts and a potential new World Record. It is all done now and a 3rd place is better then nothing.

I really want people outside of the comp to understand the level of skill and sportsmanship this place carries. No where on the planet will you find a better rounded group of casters then there. I see the work that I put in and know these boy are doing as much or more. To all keep it up and my respect to all of my competitors and friends. Also good work to both Big Tommy and Gerard or Randy D as he now goes by, for their achievements this past weekend too.

Spey-O-Rama is a wonderful place for the future of spey casting and histroy of the sport. Look at these wild boys getting ready for a go in the main pond.
