: Had a great weekend with Anthony and Tom. The weather and conditions cooperated and we were able to fish the Sol Duc, Hoh and Bohachiel. We hooked into a couple and landed a nice one.

: Had a swing trip with Kayla and Mac from Fish First Fly Shop in Chico on Saturday. It was a cold and blustery day, and the river was on the rise, but we still had of fun on the water. We focused on spey casting techniques and reading water. Kayla also caught her first Trinty river steelhead. I think her smile says it all.

: Fished this past week all around NorCal working on a project with GoPro and Cal Trout. Over the course of the week, we fished the upper Sac, Hat Creek, the McCloud river, Klamath river and Fall River. The weather was cold and rainy, but the fishing still managed to be great. Fished with nymphs, streamers and dries, and caught fish with each set up. I even managed to swing up a bass. It was an awesome week, and with the weather starting to warm up again, the hatches should really start to pick up again. On Fall River the past few days, the Hex hatch is really going off. This is my favorite hatch, not just because of the aggressive takes, but also because watching the sun set over Mt. Shasta is never the same experience twice.
