PATAGONIA FISH CATALOG SPRING 2016 Oregon Whitewater + Idaho Tenkara + Traditions
The new Patagonia Fish Catalog arrived in the mail yesterday and I couldn’t be more pleased to see a few familiar faces along with many friends. A big thank you to all those folks who allow me to follow them around with my camera and document small significant moments of your life.
NW TOUR PT 3 | FIELD ASSIGNMENT Rogue River, Oregon
The last stop of the Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures Pacific Northwest Tour finished on Oregon’s Rogue River with Tight Lines Fly Fishing, run by the legendary Helfrich Family. Now run by the fourth generation, they certainly know their stuff. Since 1925, they’ve been in the business of running big whitewater and chasing fish in drift boats. The guide crew was super pro and we were definitely in the presence of river masters!
Dry fly fishing for “half-pounder” steelhead was hot and the Rogue River twitch technique produced some great fighting fish. The river itself was stunning, and the scenery, wildlife, and big rapids all created a big, exciting adventure. We camped at different lodges along the way, toured historical sites and ate like royalty (We highly recommend the pork chops!). A big thanks to Tight Lines Fly Fishing and all those who helped make this leg of the trip a success!
