|Standard;My wife Susan and I made our first trip to fish the Salmon River, knowing very little about fishing for Steelhead. We found Joe through his web page, and contacted him by phone to set up our trip. From the initial conversation, Joe was welcoming and confident we would have a great time, and catch some fish. We met Joe the first morning for breakfast and immediately felt comfortable talking and visiting with him.
Joe has an amazing knowledge of the river and the fish he pursues. He did a wonderful job working with the both of us, keeping us with flies and leaders. This proved difficult as the water was fast and we hooked bottom many times. Joe had us on fish first thing, and Susan landed her first fish a large Steelhead 15-16lbs before lunch. On day two we started the same way with breakfast and then fishing. The fishing was slow in the morning, but after lunch we moved to a new location and immediately began hooking fish. We each landed several during the afternoon all 10+ lbs, and had on several more fish we didn't land. Joe is a very patient and ethical fisherman, and we had a wonderful time. We left on the second day and headed for Niagara, Joe told us we would end up wishing we stayed to fish another day....He couldn't have been more right. We will most definitely make the trip back to fish the Salmon River, and will again fish with Joe. I've been recommending him to anyone who listens to the story of our trip."
