My Boat was covered in Ice all day 

I pulled this ice off a rock on shore

The ice was so clear I decided to take a photo through the ice
I cancelled most of my trips when the snow and cold temps hit, but some people still want to go.
So we went out today and braved the freezing temps to see if we can find any steelhead.
The water temp was around 35 degrees, probably the hardest temp to catch anything.
We still had a great time any way.
Pray for some RAIN!!!!!!!!

 I guided 6 straight days last week with perfect weather and water temps. We found some fish almost everyday.
The best fly was a Black and Blue Tanden Tube Fly or a Orange and Red Tandem Tube Fly fished with 12ft of T-11.
Thanks to everyone who fished with me last week, that was alot of fun watching these wild fish hit the fly and make some great jumps and runs.

When I am not guiding this is where  you can find me every evening tying flies.
I am either restocking my boxes for my next guide trip or working on a new pattern for Idylwilde Flies.
I tie every fly for all of my guide trips, its well over a couple 100 doz flies a year.
When I tied commerically as a teenager I would tie 900-1,200 doz a summer.

Morning Sunrise on the Sandy River

I love the reflections of the trees on the water

Perfect winter steelhead weather

Better have a good rain coat
I was out guiding on the Sandy river last week, the weather was perfect. We had chances everyday but could not connect with any fish for more then a head shake. The water was rising a little each day we were out, which can make steelhead tougher to catch. The river is on the rise today but when it settles and starts to drop it should be good.
So get out there and swing some flies!
