A plug for upcoming video

#16
I went into John and Amy's shop when i was 13 to buy a few flies. I asked about beadheads and they said that they don't fish those. They wouldn't give me fly advice. Then Amy badmouthed the guide my dad had booked for me who IMO is still one of the best guides the D has ever seen. Its weird to me why they would do that to a kid but they havn't had buisness from me since. Damn good thing Jeff Cotrell is at Fly Shop of the Dalles, what a good guy!
While I know how annoying it can be when the elders try to "learn you", they probably were just trying to point you in the right direction in their minds. They didn't realize that you fully comprehend many aspects of flyfishing including the wet fly swing and that your choice of nymphs wasn't neieve, it was by choice.

The video looks cool. Only problem is that the cmaera didn't pick up the hoards of boats and other anglers that are always there with the steelhead :p

Sorry guys, my opinion comes from growing up fishing that river and my association with them. I litterally caught them (or i should say one of them) spying on me in the bushes in a run about 8 yrs ago. That's about as far as I'll go here.

"East Fork" I'll follow Panhandle's lead here.:hmmm: I have no problem with folks trying to make a 'living,' even a very good 'living,' but might there be a limit as to how far you're willing to take that?

If this were Southern KalEfornia, the answer would be no?:confused:

Amy has recieved several warnings from the fish and game about harrassing other guides and fisherman. She has been known to try to bump people out of "her water". As a transplant to the area I can't understand why she would do this, not that anyone should have the right.

Roger that ZP. Interesting part is that via a boat you have 'unlimited access' to water that a 'bankie' could only dream about. But ..... what's to add?:mad:

Forgot to add: John, your new puppies ... how old? Cute as can be even in a small photo.

Yep, these were the stories I've heard. The story goes, that she is a "female" guide, and can getaway from "bumping" people around. I guess she takes advantage of her feminin side on the river. Other guides and fisherman can't get upset and threaten or beat a woman, so she continues to do it. I wasn't sure there was any truth to it or not.

The owner of the fly shop at Sandy is definitely not a big bunny rabbit. He is what nightmares are made of. His own son sugar coatted it and called him a carmudgeon.
