    hmmmmm, I noticed that too. Very interesting, yet his last name isn't Dickerson (sp). What do you have to day for yourself Mr. Not So Su......
    Also you mention you took "looking at Dennis's record" into the mix when deciding to make him a sponser? What is going on here! Are you Dennis and Chris? :beathead:

    Where does Dan say that? I think you are confusing Dan with Jeremy.

    Edit: Good to see the growing sense of camaraderie in our community. Congrats to DD guides and WWF. Old stuff is water under the bridge and here's to new beginnings in 08!

    Is Dennis Dickson legally a fishing guide for salmon in WA?

    Not just a captain, but also has his WA guide license for salmon?

    As you can tell I have a vested interest in Dickson Flyfishing. All this Neah Bay stuff, up until yesterday was news to me.

    I contacted Dennis and we talked about his involvement in the Neah Bay/ Sol Duc campout, at length.

    I am probably not qualified to state his position on something that happened years ago, long before I ever came on the scene. In fact, I lived in California and was going to Humboldt State at this time.

    I do know from the conversation that his intent was not to break the law, and that sometimes dealings you work out with locals, end up not working out the way intended. Those trips are not offered anymore.

    I cannot actually tell you what license Dennis pays for because I have never asked him, but I have a guide commercial license for salmon.

    I've fished with Dennis and Mike for several years and have also heard many impressions both good and somewhat negative, but most of these were from folks who hadn't actually fished with him. Yes, his extreme confidence, shall we say, sometimes rubs people the wrong way and is often misinterpreted, but he is extremely knowledgeable of both fishing and biology and cares about doing both expertly. And, not just having lots of knowledge and experience on the subjects we all care about, he also has and shares his passion for these pursuits with his clients which leads to good teaching. He is outspoken about that which he feels strongly about and I respect that.

    Also, I fish spey in the winter as does Mike Dickson. Dennnis has no problem with it but does prefer the one-hander for reasons he hasn't shied from stating, which has seemingly offended some folks. We all have our reasons for liking to fish the way we fish.

    I will also take the alleged high road with regard to Smalmo but there's more to that fuzzy picture than meets the eyes of the readers.

    Regardless, sponsorship for the site is a great thing to do. Well done, Dennis et al.

    Yes, I also agree that is nice to see him as a sponsor. Both Dennis and Mike are great guys and guides, they have taught me quite a bit. Everything from being a good steward of the river (in many more aspects than the normal C&R debates), to fly fishing technique. Thanks to all the subscribers for the info over the years and have a happy 2008!:thumb:
