i used to live there. i took my first lesson with Juro because i didnt know anyone else. He was proficient and good instructor. I wouldnt say i made him proud with my first and only lesson, but i love casting and dont suck at it all the time anymore. was huge leap on learning curve to have someone watch and pay attention to you. definitely worth the coin,even retrospectively.
i tried to hire walt geryk as a guide, but have been unsucessful so far. will try again when stars align. ill bring cranberry juice and ketorolac on next trip to increase my chances.
Rushers steelhead was my favorite fly when i was a nymphomaniac. cant go wrong with a guy with proven steelhead mojo.
i used to swing the back side of cranes on the castleneck all the time, great place to swing for dinks and occasional bigger morons. great place to practice as only the gulls laugh at your initial thrashing about. welcome to the next level.
"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."
