Sample of Typical Itinerary
Although our schedule changes throughout the season depending on available light and water temperatures, we start our days by meeting at my house or me picking you up at your hotel. Then we fish for around 4-5 hours after which we return to our home for a hot home-cooked lunch and beverages prepared by my wife, Janeil. We usually finish of the lunch with dessert and a bit of port before we go back on the stream for another 3-4 hours of fishing.
A special tour of his studio can be scheduled during your stay and a watercolor or oil painting of your trophy steelhead or favorite stretch of water can also be commissioned. This is a perfect way to remember the day’s events or as a gift for a special friend, business associate, or family member.
Watercolors – around 6 x 10 - $1,200
Oil paintings – 15.5 x 33 – $2,000
Oil paintings – 33 x 48 – $4,000
Oftentimes the best gift is a fond memory. Let us try to create a lifelong memory for you and your guests.
