After the finish of a less than optimal season in Alaska, I had the opportunity to return to my home state and guide on some of the most sacred waters to the sport of Fly Fishing, such as the Klamath, McCloud and Upper Sacramento, of which I lived on the banks of. Between october 12 and december 15, I was on the water just about every day sharing beautiful places and the fish that live in them with people from all over the world. Here are some photos from the season.
Maiden voyage on the Rogue, Shady to Dodge. Few fish to hand and a great first day!
Some big fish were found on the Upper Klamath, this one taped out at 28″
One of Matts first steelhead! Don’t find em like that every cast….
Cold morning in Jefferson
Started snowing at 1pm. By 4pm there was at least 6″ on the ground, and it was time to go!
Best catch of the season!
This run produced some big fish for me this season, one being the largest steelhead I have seen, anywhere…..
Frosty morning near the town of Klamath River
Chromers up top! Fish were on the move!
Small Tributary to the Klamath that is a pretty interesting place.
This is really small water, and the king carcass was from a fish that at one point had to be close to 50lbs.
Swingin with a 3wt spey.
Fat fish. This one had some serious power.
Birth of a spey rod….Built by myself with great instruction.
