Hi Y'all


Im sharing today a recap of a trip I recently returned from

Fellow spey pager Bignap and myself left philly and NY on Sept 10th for 8 days of fishing...frank has done this trip a few times ...this was my first trip out west to fish ....totally ridiculously amazing experience all around

great scenery, awesome fish, perfect water and just the best people ever..

from the peeps at the gas station to the guides and everyone along the way it was a truly unforgettable experience and im so grateful to have gone

1st 4 days were on the klickitat with frank (bignap).....rolf at the klikitat trader was a fantastic host..a most excellent man..thanks for everything .....cant wait to visit your river again!!!!

Frank swung up a fish within an hour of stepping down our first run on a classic wet!!!!!

Next 4 days were a float down the deschutes...we were joined by frank's and now my friend carey ...super enthusiastic and an awesome dude!

Guides Travis and Caleb were awesome guys and excellent teachers and Ira set up an awesome camp ...Thanks!!!!

Frank swung a ****in 20+ lb chinook wtf!

Too much said already ...

Nice pics.

We got back two days ago from a 5 day trip. We had a wonderful time, great weather, good water temps, decent camp.
The other side of the coin is that the White was off a bit the first day and then puked its guts out the remainder of our trip. Irrigation season turned off as well, so the water level jumped---a week earlier than most years, I believe.

Still, it was a great trip. More to come, I hope.
