    One of a number of fish taken on the fly with Jack Mitchell & Crew while staying at the Steelhead Ranch. That was my first time and I'm sure to be back... great water.:thumb:

    Do they have you floating and nymphing or are you getting out of the boat and fishing?

    Mostly from the boat on the drift, but I caught two of mine wading while others were chowing down lunch:D

    Hat,

    I worked for Jack down there for a while and although nymphing from the boat is the norm you can do whatever you prefer.

    I also spent 1/2 day learning the ropes on spey casting from Jack Mitchell... that subsequently cost me ~$600 in new & used spey equipment!

    I was just wondering, I don't know the guides on the klick. I used to fish it quite often but stopped due to some of the guides fishing through a run while we where swinging through. Not implying these guys were the ones. I was just curious how they fish.
