First Members Trip 2011

Posted 08-03-2011 at 09:23 AM by Davo (Davo's Fly Angling Adventures)

Got our first members trip coming up. So far we have four members spending a few days floating and camping down on the Green River.

We floated the Lower Green below Fontanell Res. last fall. That was only a one day trip with a lot of driving. This time we will get off the river and grab a quick bite in town then head to camp. Sit around the fire and tell tall tales while sipping a nice single malt of a beer or two!!

This will be almost as good and a bit easier than the...

First Summer Float of 2011

Posted 07-29-2011 at 09:55 AM by Davo (Davo's Fly Angling Adventures)

It is both sad and joyous that on July 28th I got in my first float of the 2011 summer season. We have waited what seems forever and a day for the river flows to come down to fishing level. For my Boss and good friend Greg and I yesterday was the day!!

We floated the lower stretch of the New Fork River just South of Pinedale, WY. Though it is a long hour and a half drive to the put in it is well worth it. The New Fork is a lot like the Green just a little smaller. Slowly meandering...

I just read a post from Pocono that brought this post I made back to my memory. Things have a way of getting buried in the thousands of threads on the board so I'm posting it here in case you naver ran across it. I'll find a picture of the rod and edit it in soon.

*On a Thursday evening in late June of 2010 I made a phone call to a man who runs a barge business on the rivers here in the MatSu Valley. I hadn't heard from him for awhile and with this being the busy season I figured...

My Life From River to River;

Every year trying to intercept the salmon as they travel up the rivers here becomes a sort of problem. Actually it's more of a fixation than a problem and it takes control of my mind and therefore my life every year. I'll try to say this so you all can relate to what has happened over the years.

I have lived in several places, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Virginia, Colorado and Alaska. The bulk of time was spent in Pennsylvania with just 2 years in Georgia, 2 in Virginia, and one in Colorado....

River to River Part 2;

On Wednesday the 13th of July I took a ride on my favorite river looking for some sockeye salmon. I knew there would be some chum in and maybe even a few late kings that might take a fly so with a beautiful sunny day coming about I was on the water at 10:00 AM. I knew where I was headed because the fish take the same route every year and seem to hold in the same spots. From where I launched I stayed on the shallow side of the river and traveled slow watching carefully the deeper channel on my left...
