    For those folks who enjoy reading about fly fishing, I'd recommend getting a copy of "Stronghold - One Man's Quest to Save the World's Wild Salmon", by Tucker Malarkey.  (Try the public library.) 

    It's very well written, entertaining and informative from cover to cover.  It's somewhat a biography of Guido Rahr, who founded the Wild Salmon Center, but is much broader in scope as well.  It tells the story of how the WSC came about, as well as how Guido pretty much single-handedly opened up the Kamchatka Peninsula, Sakhalin Island, and the Tugur River in Russia to fly fishing.  He worked with celebrities, oligarchs and politicians to achieve this. Guido holds the world record for Taimen caught on a fly – Taimen are a salmonidae that can exceed 100 lbs and who eat chum salmon for breakfast. Guido was also very involved with the fight against the Pebble Mine in Alaska, and helped expand the Marine Stewardship Council to cover the Pacific Ocean.  You'll undoubtedly learn more about the ecology of a river, how salmon play a central role in it, and how humans are gradually destroying a critical link in our planet's lifecycle.

    Last night at the Installation dinner, a basket that I brought to the event, a woven, multicolored basket with a distinctive handle (blue tape at one end) disappeared. It was on the bench behind the  raffle table and may have inadvertently been picked up by someone thinking it was part of a raffle award. The basket has a lot sentimental value and I would like to get it back.

    Hi all,

    I know you're having a fish out at Pyramid coming up, and wanted to share was successful for a friend and I . We were there 4 days, last Friday thru Monday night.

    We fished whino, popcorn, and Sutcliffe beach, only got 1 24" . Fished pelican the last half day and got 6 between 24_28".

    Best set up was intermediate sink with versaleader 15 ips,. 4' flouro  to weighted Olive wooley bugger, 2' dropper with weighted Olive balanced leech, all fish were caught on the balanced leech! 

    Good luck!

    Hi PFF members

    Below is my response to the ?  On my fly fishing skills on my application

    Hi Debbie

    I've been flyfishing for over 50 years, most all has been high mtn lakes and streams. 3 years ago I decided to chase nutrients rich world class rivers.Humbled and frustrated I found out I needed to learn a lot more. Dove in head first and read, researched, watched videos, and tried to apply on the waters. Learned new casting techniques, nymphing styles, indicators, hatches etc. Loving every minute of it! Hooked for life, on a never ending weekend!

    Bob

    Recently retired, and a hunger for adventure and exploration! I've always called the Trinity Alps home away from home. Having family up their, theAlps we're my go to place, for camping, fishing and hunting, raised my children to enjoy and appreciate the great outdoors as I have, and cherish the memories! 

    I look forward to meeting you all, and sharing the waters with you!
