First off, we want to take the time and thank all of YOU for your continued support over the almost two decades that Fly and Field has been in town. This was the 15th time that Fly and Field have done their Fall shakedown float. Without your continued support, trips like this would never be possible! So, we want to thank you for allowing us to shut down the shop for a few days and spend a few much needed days on the water with our crew.

The weather was forecasted to be pretty nasty over the weekend. However, we found that it was not quite as bad as it was predicted. We launched early Saturday morning and took off in the afternoon on Monday! The weather was quite steelhead like for day one. It turned out that the weather was right and two steelheads were stuck at the first stop of the day. One by Shop Manager, Dave Merrick and the other by Scott Cooks brother, Jeff. Both happened to be hatchery fish, which turned out to be an excellent appetizer for the chilly evenings. Both steelheads took the swung fly!

Smiles for miles! Right out the gate from Trout Creek, we were kick backed and relaxed. Here is Andrew, Scott, and Jeff enjoying the early morning on the Lower Deschutes River.

First Stop Success! Legend, Dave Merrick, follows Kyle through a run and sticks a nice hatchery fish. We ate this one night one! Delicious.

We call this FULL CHILL FREELAND. What a guy, what a guy!

On these trips, we take the fishing easy and the relaxing hard! Griff loves a beautiful, cold Vicious Mosquito from Sunriver. He spent a considerable portion of his summer on the camp stretch of the river working, so it was nice for him to take a few days to kick back and relax.

 

 

Day Two brought blue skies and strong winds. The strong winds, eh… well… we made it happen! Here is Glenn swinging for the elusive steel.

 

Coming through the horse!!  At least the end of it. Just like coffee, rowing Whitehorse will wake you up in the morning.

GEORGE!!!! Our awesome little George stuck his first steelhead on the float. He is genuinely dedicated to the steelhead game, refuses to nymph and only swing. This one ate a swung fly!! Well done George, you are the man!

Jasper Trout getting a little Trouty down there!  WOO!

Griff is surveying the mess that a feisty trout decided to create after being hooked in the mouth!

This is one of our favorite parts of the Lower Deschutes float. The wildlife! This big sheep was hanging on the right bank, in a spot where we usually do not see them. He was big and bad!!

Griff sticking a nice little trout. Woo!

These next two photos are what it is all about for us! Just relaxing, hanging, drinking a few cold ones, and party fishing with the boys. Woo! Truly, this is what it is all about.  We appreciate YOU for allowing US to take this time to be with our crew. Thanks again!

    Hi there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if
    you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding
    skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • how to get help in windows 10,

    Hello, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot
    of spam responses? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?

    I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any
    assistance is very much appreciated.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see
    if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has
    83 views. I know this is completely off topic but
    I had to share it with someone!

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article
    seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser
    compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.

    The design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Cheers

    I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

    Currently it sounds like Drupal is the preferred blogging platform out there right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

    Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?

    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
    for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
