New Movie: Annual March steelhead trip

Posted: March 6, 2017 by Hellcat in Fish Reports

It’s true what our parents always told us. “Wait until you’re older. Time will start to go by faster.” We’ve all heard this, right? We’ve all heard it because it’s true. I am living proof. We all are. We can close our eyes…and in the snap of a finger return to almost any memory we chose.

In an instant.

Why is it that some experiences, no matter how much time passes, can rejuvenate us mentally and spiritually? For fishermen…all of it returns the second we grab the rod and reel handle or wrap our mitts around a rubber-torn oar handle.

It all comes right back. The spots you wanted are there and at the right level. There are no other boats. Your best friends are with you. Fuck. I’m overwhelmed with this year’s annual March float with Stricker. This year Nick Nelson came along and completed the new trio. And while we’ll fish again before next March….this trip will always seem like it happened just a second ago.

I always enjoy my time to the max with the fellas of NWK Fishing. We had a solid weekend of bank angling with finesse tactics for steelhead!!

Special thanks to Chris, Corey, Garrett and Carlin for a great trip this time around.

While we were a little early for the run…it was definitely not too early to have fun.

Please enjoy our movie and thanks for your support.

NWK Take Over

Posted: January 26, 2017 by Hellcat in Fish Reports

*Below is a joke, Dad.

I am witnessing what may very well be the beginning of a take over of some kind by NWK on

I can’t call it a ‘hostile’ take over either since I’m directly responsible for the post’s publishing.

I’ll have to come up with a plan to reassure some footing as the primary content provider for this website.

Here are Thing 1 and Thing 2 with as many fish as their person plus one.

And since two is better than one…we’ve got that picture above for you too.

Small creek pigs

Can you tell me what is better than a small creek pig? The only thing I can think of is maybe a small creek donkey. Or maybe a small creek mule. Either way…this low teener from CBRadio is hot fire. Taken on hardware in high water this fish couldn’t resist the NWK retrieve.

Honestly, my idol.

The man. The myth. The legend. Sal Monid. You know you’re a ‘G’ when:

The Federal Government makes a poster of you fishing from the bank in the 80’s.

And has you autograph it. Say no more.

Dave Heller, 198something.

Simply, C$.

If you can tough it out a super steel may await you

Like so many of you I have been essentially camping in my house for days. With only the occasional trip to the store for supplies the last five days have been all about me and Max hanging out on a second winter break under inches and inches of snow and ice. Playin in the snow with Max and we even built an igloo for him.

Not everyone is binge watching Netflix and playing in the snow. I’ve got some die hard friends however who are not spending this cold snap the way I have been.

Nick Nelson

One of them braved the weather and driving conditions to eek out a dandy on last cast yesterday. Thanks for sharing, Nick.

Helping a friend: F*ck Cancer.

I was recently made aware a very good friend of mine is going through a very hard time right now. The challenge of her life, perhaps. The link is self explanatory and is all too familiar for so many of us in some way. Please take a moment to reflect and visit the link below if you’d like. Her name is Molly Francis and she has been diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma. Breast cancer. Please help if you can.
