1. Catch a Great Lakes steelhead, on a fly, during each month of the year.
2. Swing streamers for steelhead in British Columbia.
Wild steelhead, powerful rivers, remote. Could it get any better?
3. Western Alaska
Float trip, no guide, just me, my brother, the rainbows, and the grizz. Floated the Tal in '08, I need more!
My brother and I, chilling in Alaska.
I love backpacking and the adventure of fishing remote places. Golden Trout prefer high altitude lakes and rivers which keep them inaccessible for the majority of anglers. Perfect.
Only 1-3 states away, I need to see what its all about. Hear of some giant LRB's in those parts of the country as well.
6. Land an Atlantic Salmon
Because I'm a sucker for a hook jaws and big spots.
7. Fish in Yellowstone N.P.
Waiting to take my daughter on this trip, she's only 9mo old, might be a few days.
8. Catch a big Brook Trout
I don't care where, as long as its on a fly.
9. 20lbs of Brown on the Lake Huron Flats
I live 3 miles from Lake Huron, which annually produces browns over 20lbs. Stripping large streamers is the game.
10. Fly Fish Someplace Exotic
I've never fished the salt or below the equator. New Zealand, Patagonia, Belize?...Take your pick!
