If your interested in a free winter steelhead fly fishing seminar and you're in the Eugene/Springfield area this next Friday, November 11th, from 6:00 p.m. until around 8:00 p.m. please stop by and say hi. The nice folks at the new Springfield Cabela's store have invited me back to do another presentation. Information on the upcoming seminars is available by going to their website. http://www.cabelas.com/.
Within the next twenty days (if the weather holds) my winter steelhead fly fishing season will begin! and fish like the one Johnny Delashaw is gently cradling will be crushing big stringy, slimy looking spey flies!
The fine folks at the "Steamboaters" have added a new blog to their website. "On the River" will be a great source of info for everyone who loves the North Umpqua. I've added a link on my blog list. Visit them often and if you can, join them or donate to their efforts. The Steamboaters and their dedicated members are why we have the North Umpqua that we enjoy today and why we'll have the same great river that our kids will enjoy in the decades to come.
Over the past several weeks family and friends and I have been working hard at creating a brand new duck hunting shoot in the Willamette Valley. The pond is now done, complete with two blinds, it full of water and decoys are out - waiting for some northern birds to arrive. This is what it looks like;
And, last but not least, fall chinook fly fishing is underway on the south coast and over the coming weeks BIG mondo, fly eating kings will be dining on these!
