If you've ever been to my Deschutes Steelhead Camp, or maybe you've seen it while floating the lower river, you've probably wondered how the heck we get all that gear up the river. Well, here's my sled loaded up with all the tents, kitchen, groover, food and other gear.
"Piggy" would be a good way to describe how the boat runs when she's fully loaded, but it's worth hauling all the crap up there to have a very comfortable camp!
I've always enjoyed guiding father and son trips. Rivers, after all, are wonderful places to make ever lasting memories between generations.
Travis Duddles from the Gorge Fly Shop and his father Albert made this sweet memory last October on the Deschutes. This beautiful wild hen slammed a purple Reverse Marabou tube and headed for the sky.
Nice fish Albert!
Thinking about buying a new Spey rod? Here's a few of my favorite Spey rigs for the fisheries I guide on and host trips too. All affiliate links go to the Gorge Fly Shop in Hood River, Oregon. If you have any questions about the rods, please don't hesitate to email me.

Bighorn sheep are one of the common critters we see while fishing the Deschutes. Most of the time, they like to stay high on the hillsides of the canyon. I caught this flock sneaking down to the river for a drink while guiding the salmon fly hatch last spring.

Late November is a time I cherish. After watching people wail on steelhead all season, I actually get to hang out with my buddies and do some fishing!
Here's a cool shot I took of a November buck landed on a new Winston Boron III TH Spey rod by my close friend and industry sales rep, Eric Neufeld.
