Fall In Jefferson

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.

This is really small water, and the king carcass was from a fish that at one point had to be close to 50lbs.
