Swinging Into The New Year

By |December 27th, 2019|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

As we come to a close of 2019 looking back it has been a great year.  Maybe not in fish numbers, but in fishing experiences.  More and more clients are enjoying swinging flies with two hander's each season and are working hard on their casting and skills to fish thru a run move effectively.  And they are just enjoying being out there unplugged from work and devices. Enjoying time on the water with friends, just taking it all in, as we all know, life is too short not to live everyday to its fullest. Don't forget our Winter Special with the Douglaston Salmon Run now til March 31.                                                                     To book a trip or to discuss a trip click here.   Interested in casting a Echo Full Spey  7130 or Compact Spey 7012, contact me  and we can meet up on the Salmon River.

Salmon Season Is Underway

By |September 24th, 2019|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , |

 The Fall salmon run is well underway now.  It started off good but the weather was too summer like this past week and slowed things down. Hopefully more Fall like weather will return soon because steelhead  will hopefully  start showing up once the water cools down.    Who's ready to catch some steelhead?? The NYS Salmon River Fish Hatchery will be holding the 23rd Annual Salmon River Fish Hatchery Open House and Family Day on Saturday, Sept. 28, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  For more information this event click here. Open Dates -  I have the following days open.   October 26 & 27. November 3 December 21,22,28,29 for the rest of 2019.

Salmon River Season Is A Wrap

By |May 13th, 2019|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , |

The 2018/2019 Salmon River season is a wrap and what a great season it was. I want to thank everyone who booked with me this season. I know I converted more clients over to swinging flies this year and looking forward to teaching more clients the swing game was strong this year. If you haven't booked your dates for the fall, don't wait any longer.  I have only 2 days left for the Salmon Run and only a couple of days open thru mid December.
