For the adventurous angler, this will be akin to our trip to Sudan with some travel and semi arduous angling conditions. In other words if you like the idea of wading flats and casually tossing 12wts at big GT’s this is your trip! Other species include bonefish and triggers with snapper mixed in as well. One of the aspects of this trip we are excited about is the ability to interact with the local Polynesians and glean some of their culture from the experience of the trip. Please be in touch with Dave soon if interested.

Not just a GT destination as there are plenty of other amazing fly rod species here such as Milkfish, Bumpheads, Triggers and bonefish but the GT for many is the pinnacle of fly tackle challenges as these fish will find any weak link in tackle and exploit it, blow it up and spit it back at you…or simply just take it! Hands down one of the most desired destinations on the planet for experienced saltwater anglers and very likely on everyone’s bucket list.

October 6, 2017 — Host: Reid FULL

For the traveling angler who is ready to break out those tarpon or GT rods for a local trip. These albacore range in size from 15-25 pounds and will flex any rod you bring to the fight to its extreme. Join us aboard the fastest big boat charter out of Ilwaco, a 42ft Sportfisher. Leave port at 6am and back by 6pm, plenty of time to wear your arm out!
Savan River, Kamchatka, Russia — Mice and Rainbows
August 19-27, 2018 — Host: Dave
7 night/6 day float/camp package — $6850 per angler
6 anglers max – FULL
Reserve your spot HERE
Located on the southern end of Kamchatka, the Savan is a smaller watershed with similar to that of a spring creek with gin clear water perfect for sight casting to the big rainbows awaiting their next meal. The way this trip is situated, the flow of the trip allows for the group to stay close to where fishing is best so if fishing well upon putting in, pace can be slow and spend time on the upper float. If fishing appears a bit slow pace can be accelerated to find better fishing. Chosen for mousing potential with this being a prime week.
