|My friend Mack and I booked Joe for a day on the river on 4/27/08. We found him through his website and he did not disappoint. We showed up at 830am, pretty late, but Joe was understanding and got us outfitted and right out on the water. It was a beautiful day on the river and it was surprising to only see a handful of other groups near our fishing spot. The first pool we stopped at was unproductive, we spotted a few fish but could only get a small Steelhead fresh from the hatchery to bite. But we did learn how to roll cast and got the feel for placing the fly where it needed to be. Joe was extremely patient whenever we got snagged up and provided us with a great deal of humor. The next spot we waded too was where we stayed the rest of the trip and was loaded with Steelhead. Shortly after getting there Mack hooked up and landed a nice fish, and my next cast after snapping his picture I landed a fish. We caught 9 nice fish in all, the biggest one probably being around 13 or 14 pounds, and we lost a handful of other fish. It was an unbelievable day of fishing and we had a great time with Joe and Sinbad. We will be back in the fall and are looking forward to getting back together with Joe for some salmon fishing. Thanks again Joe, it was a day to remember on the water.
