McKenzie River fishing guide and Rogue River
steelhead fishing guide specialist
My new book has just hit the stores, and it’s a fun read. Guaranteed. You can order the book directly from me. I would be happy to sign it and enclose one of my signature wet flies tied by me personally. In writing this book, I have kicked the hornet’s nest. Some controversy. Yes, it has info about flies, techniques, and where the fish are. But, I address issues of crowding, strategic planning, biases, and a “guerilla” approach to catching steelhead in a competitive environment. Amato Publishing did a great job of design, layout, and photo reproduction. The book contains more than 200 photos. Very interesting and different, I think. Hardcover: $45 Softbound: $29.95 Mailing: Add $5, mainland USA only. Check or money orders. I cannot process credit or debit cards. Thanks.

Fly fishing and
Oregon: a great combination. An abundance of fishable waters combined with
a mild year-round climate
in the coastal western
one third of the state, enables a variety of angling possibilities even through
the dead of winter. Salmon, steelhead and trout are the most highly-prized
quarry in our state.
And, yes, the wary steelhead and salmon can be caught fly fishing, even by the
willing beginner, accompanied by a skilled teacher/fly fishing guide.
Take a mini fishing tour as you peruse our pages. You may find an
fly fishing trip with a
licensed fly fishing guide on the McKenzie River, Siletz, Rogue, or North or
South Santiam Rivers serves you well this season. January through
March our focus is on the Siletz River steelhead fly fishing trip.
