Summer Solstice

Your Olympic Peninsula fly fishing guide.
Catch and Release, fly fishing only!

Summer! Well, almost . . .
   The summer solstice came in with a bang last night. We had thunder storms for a few hours here late last night. And we had a full "strawberry moon" too. There's a little rain in the forecast here mid week, but it shouldn't stop our fishing plans. We still have a few weeks of "Sprummer" to get through here in Western Washington. The garden is growing like crazy and I am mowing and weeding as fast as I can. 

   I got out on the beach with a few friends last week, for some sea-run cutthroat trout fishing. We did a benefit trip for Chad Brown and his Soul River Runs Deep programs. Brian Lencho made the donation, and he brought along Leland Miyawaki and Craig Lannigan for the day.  It was a beautiful morning to fish. We had a magical Japanese "Bento" lunch, provided by Leland. And we got to fish a little in the afternoon, before the thunder got too close for my comfort. Once you have been hit by lightning, you never take it for granted again. (I will tell that story here someday.) 

The Three Amigos.

Leland created this beautiful Bento.

Wonderfully careful . . .

Carefully wonderful.

Sake Salute!

Fishing with Leland.

Afternoon session with Leland . . . And thunder.

Waiting out the storm. The rain got cold!

We ended up at the Spruce Goose Cafe.

Hot home made pie and coffee!

    It's always good to spend a day with friends on the water. But doubly so when it means that there are some deserving kids or veterans, who are going to be doing a little better because of these donations. Please support Soul River Runs Deep.

This is probably the most relaxing way to fish for sea-run cutthroat.
One angler, maybe two,  Call or write for details.

Your Olympic Peninsula Fly Fishing Guide and Instructor

    I am guiding fly fishers on the Olympic Peninsula beaches, rivers and streams. We walk and wade, or row along the shorelines in the dory, fly fishing for sea-run Coastal Cutthroat trout in freshwater and saltwater, and in the rivers for Cutthroat trout and summer steelhead. This is all strictly catch and release, traditional, barbless single hook, fly fishing only. Lunch, snacks, soft beverages, and use of some equipment is included. I also offer personalized and private fly fishing and fly casting instruction for beginners through advanced casters. I would be happy to help you plan your Olympic Peninsula fly fishing adventure, for all levels of ability, beginner to expert. Public presentations, Naturalist Guide, rowboat picnics, tide pool and  river trail day trips. Please call, write or email for booking details. Now booking for April through October and beyond.
