Honeymoon Help

I have recently discovered that I am the luckiest man in the world. My darling wife to be (who is a fair weather fly angler) has said that I should look into a fly fishing honeymoon. She said and I quote "We should go somewhere you can catch big ass fish". Her only caveat is she would like a couple of days to be pampered in some sort of spa. Please send me links or reviews of places you have been. It looks like we will go on our honeymoon late July early August. I am open to any kind of fresh water fish and if it can be surface action more the better.

Thanks for the input

Regards
Blessed Brayden

Great Wife

That is great but do yourself a favor and tell her that there will be many opportunities to catch big ass fish but, right now I am yours for the week! It will pay dividends and, will never come back to haunt you. She sounds like a hell of a catch give her all of your time. Good luck and enjoy your marriage.

Honeymoon

It's not freshwater but is a dream honeymoon for spa and relaxation and fun for both. Fond honeymoon memories of wife catching really stupid bonefish on fly. North Andros/ Joulters area. It's called Kamalame Cay. Pampered bliss with tidal bonefish flats around your own private island. All inclusive except the guide fee to Joulters.

"In a world that rolls ceaselessly underfoot, rocking and lurching like a subway car, i've found that the cork grip of a fly rod offers a pretty steady handhold."
Ted Leeson, The Habit of Rivers

I'm with I-Letemgo! Give the week to her.

But how about this suggestion, if I have to make one.

Spend a few days at Steamboat Inn (wonderful and quant, deliciously delicious meals) on the North Umpqua. You can fish for a few days in the Godfather of all steelhead streams, then head to Crater Lake Lodge for a stay, less than a 90 minute drive away.

Not sure you'll get the wonder-spa treatement at either, but get her that before you go. Both places are beautiful and tres romantic.

Crater Lake is one of the natural glories to be seen.

Camp Bonaventure

You may wish to give Glen a call at Camp Bonaventure. That's usually good dry fly fishing for Atlantics. There used to be a good spa nearby.

Thanks for the input all. I did say that we should just spend the week together but she loves to fish with me and insisted we go fishing for some of the time.
Anymore suggestions I am enjoying the reading.

regard

I have to agree, including not sure what the 'Spa' facilities may be. But you want to take her to the top (and you do a bit of salt fishing .... and have a Honeymoon that will go down as a life event?

http://www.lecinqueterre.org/eng/

No need to drag equipment with you, you can purchase 'gear' for next to nothing (in 'Murican Dollar terms) and fish off the beach. Just Google this area; in Mont al mar stay in 'The old town' part!!! My recommendation (and I'll even tell which hotels) here.

Bottle of chilled local white, couple of glass', ... ah shxt, I could go on and on and on.

Trust me ... worth every penny and a hell of a way to start off a new life together. She will NEVER forget. Nor will you.

Not to totally digress- you could do the adventure thing and if money was no object- climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania and then safari / fish for tigerfish/ then fish the blue water off Zanzibar. Lots of hotels that have good spa's etc.

Would be pretty cool.

Too funny by half, but you may well be right. But the 'Second Hunny?' What do you think?

Ireland is grand

You can send a pm to Klink or some other guy to set you stright but I stayed at Fort William estate with my bride of 34 years last April and had a very private blast. Fished every morning and pudeb all afternoon.

Gaspe in early July means big fish, good food and lots of private places to stay.

If I were to do it over Iceland would be my number one choice for raw beauty, spas, and great fishing also a July spot.

Catchem up and cheers,

or you could keep it simple

if you are not going for steelhead or salmon (a la the dean river or the silver hilton on the babine, you could go to wyoming where they have a nice spa
and great trout fishing.

http://www.saratogaresortandspa.com/healing-water-spa/

... spoken from a woman's perspective who also likes to fly fish... if she really wants both and sleeping in some mornings won't cramp your style like it might if you were on the Dean- then you might think trout and sun...

or this looks nice...http://www.threeforksranch.com/ameni...-25-inch-club/

Thanks again all for the info. We are starting to narrow things down. We have ruled out the south as it is summer and we would like to save a trip to a place warm for the winter. Research progresses slowly yet delightfully. I will keep you in the loop. Please feel free to send more suggestions.

Can't beat the Gaspe! Lots to see & do besides fishing. Whale watching, kayaking, hiking, etc.. & not to mention the seafood!
Some of the clearest rivers in the world where you can see the fish you're fishing for & catch em on dries!
She won't forget it & will want to go back for sure!

Hmmm....late July or early August you say. Consider staying in Lake Placid, NY and fishing the surrounding waters. World class accomodations including a few Relais and Chateau properties. Exceptional river, pond, and stream fishing for 3 species of trout PLUS some of the most underated flyfishing for bass and pike fishing around. Outrageously beautiful and plenty of activities and nightlife opportunities. BTW...congratulations !!!!
