Here is a really nice video that tells it all on the Salmon Super Highway project. This project targets restoring fish passage to 95% of historic habitat in the Tillamook-Nestucca sub basin. This includes: Kilchis R, Miami R, Wilson R, Trask R, Tillamook R and the Nestucca R. Check it out.

Please enjoy this latest movie I put together today. The footage is from the weekend before my BDay trip! Special thanks to all involved!
Joe Caler, Jordan Turner, Sal Monid, Spencer Rhodes….
Uh oh. Here we go. This sh*t is hilarious. If you follow me and my Dad then you certainly also know Jason Strychnine Stricker. He offered to float me down our home river for my 42nd B Day and here is the hilarity that ensued. This trip was a blast. Fishing was very tough but we got into em. None of us had laughed so hard in months, either.
I hope you enjoy my latest movie. Please share it on your social media platforms and help me get Triple A cranking again!
Sturdy Kirby Canon’s famous annual salmon camp stands tall again this spring fishing season of 2016.
Harmonically balanced somewhere between perfect and the opposite of bad sits a completely self sufficient yet temporary dwelling.
It’s designed exclusively for the housing of the plunking anglers who are attempting to intercept migrating hatchery spring chinook as they porpoise up the Columbia river banks. It’s a beautiful thing. It really is. Check it out.
Oh yeah. Did I mention Kitby is a ridiculous chef?
One of the happier anglers he guided this day.
Let me first say I know what it means to have a father who cares.
When I started AAA IN 2007 I imagined a place where every angler who wanted to share something….could. All these years later with so much changed that one thing still remains the same.
Every catch is special and fun in its own way. In its own right. AAA is proud to introduce a man and his father; David and Mackenzie Wridge, to all of you AAAers out there.
Mackenzie is my son’s teacher every day of he week. He spends more time with Max than I do during the week.
While it is hard to leave Max every day it gives me great relief to know there is someone I trust who takes great care of him and is there for him. Mackenzie has a little man of his own as well.
So I would like to recognize him. It is Mackenzie who is special to this family. Mine. So I’m proud to share pics of his. Yours, Bro. Thanks for the cool share and for watching so many of my movies. Cool pics.
Enjoy the hell outbid this foul mouthed break down of a slow day of fishing. Fun. But slow. Thank goodness for these couple fish.
I know it’s been a minute since my last Triple A rant has taken place here on my website. Probably since I left Facebook over half a year ago. Then maybe another year before that. You see….after I stopped guiding for steelhead from my Driftboat I backed way off from the electronic angling world for a bit. Now that world is limited to my website and YouTube Channel.
Why did I quit guiding?
Mostly because I traded my passion for a job and it didn’t make me feel how I expected that it would. Not even close. I decided to become a guide because of several things….but mostly because of electronic pressure I projected on myself to take me to what I thought was “Next Level”. Which was what? Gettin the respect of anglers I don’t know and will never meet? Seeming tough to people that hate on my successes on the river and with the people I connect with in my life? I’m not sure. All of the above I think.
Facebook was an ego inflation of epic fucking proportions. For me. I can’t speak for you of course. I ultimately now give no fucks about what anyone thinks of me.
Anyway…now I’m fishing for fun with the people who matter in my life. While I met some people on Facebook I’m very grateful for….I’ll never be back. If you wanna hit me up…do it here.
