Words from the angler…

“Hey Chris,

I checked out your site today. You are running a class act for sure. I also read all of your aritcles. You can definitely string a sentence together, and your articles were interesting and illustrative.

Your videos on YouTube are topnotch. I have never got into shooting videos, but I do take plenty of pictures. I don’t know if you want to add pictures of California chinooks and steelhead to your site, but if you do, I have some good photos, and my main steelheading pal may add a few too.

Out of curiosity, I am just going to hazard a guess that you live somewhere in northwest Oregon, and the rivers in a lot of the videos are probably the tributaries of Tillamook Bay?? I have never been there, but I am just making an educated guess based on pictures I have seen in magazines. In fact, I live in Reno. The minimum drive for me to chase anadromous fish is 135 miles. Both the American and Feather River are that exact distance from my house.

California Rivers have good populations of chinooks, and they make up the bulk of my anadromous fishing, but I do plenty of steelheading too. Of course, I live 25 miles from the world’s best cutthroat trout fishery, Pyramid Lake. If you ever want to catch a huge and unique native trout, Pyramid is the place to go.

Best of luck, Mike”
