The morning is very clear in my mind, because the day before was so unique. Ah now I have your attention.
The day before we had floated the Siletz River, one of our favorite coastal rivers to winter steelhead fish. We had noticed one of the local guides seemed to be filming a movie on the water. That was the unique part. I mean how often do you go winter steelhead fishing (in Oregon to boot) and run into a camera crew floating down right beside you… Because of that odd day, I remember putting the boat in the next day, floating a short way, and seeing the another guided trip with professional photographers shooting pictures right and left. As we floated by I felt a bit like Robert Redford, the camera’s were smok’in… Even a half mile down river you could hear the camera’s clicking.
Soooo yesterday I come home from another good day on the river, winter steelhead fishing, (which by the way is about over for me, moving north to catch the Spring Chinook) and one of my great clients from Gold Beach Oregon had sent a large envelope. I opened it up, and the first thing I saw was a picture of me Floating The Siletz. An article had been written in the Local Paper and I immediately went back to the “Camera-Redford Day”. In my mind I thought “finally a story about the river and some pictures of us hooking the big one!” Great for business right? Little pat on the back right? As I started to read the article I realized the article had nothing to do with us. In fact the article was a story about another guide and how to fish the river…
Well there it is. Our two minutes, not even close to famous. For those of you that can find the article and picture I am happy to sign it for you.
Dont forget count down is on… The Spring Chinook’s are on the way. Give us a call let’s go hook one of these beautiful fish together.
