Choosing the Best Fly Reel
The fly fishing reel is a compact and efficient machine designed to store, dispense, and retrieve the fly line and backing. Fly reels also provide an angler with the welcome assistance of a mechanical drag or braking system that helps slow down a running fish. These devices are generally constructed of high-grade aluminum and can be highly engineered with the assistance of computer software commonly found in architecture and design firms, or they can be "funny paper simple" in their functionality.

detdesc::Fly Reel

Ages ago, when the Macedonians began to fool local trout and grayling with artificial flies, there were no fly reels. These anglers would hold gathered silken fly line in a bunched and folded wad in their free hand. It's easy to see the potential pitfalls in such a system and it was only a matter of time before someone chose to solve the problem and introduce a mechanized way to manage line. Since the introduction of the first modern fly reels in the 1800s, the sport of fly fishing and its techniques have changed dramatically.

The fly fishing reel is a compact and efficient machine designed to store, dispense, and retrieve the fly line and backing. Fly reels also provide an angler with the welcome assistance of a mechanical drag or braking system that helps slow down a running fish. These devices are generally constructed of high-grade aluminum and can be highly engineered with the assistance of computer software commonly found in architecture and design firms, or they can be "funny paper simple" in their functionality.

Today's Fly Reels

Modern fly reels consist of five major design elements: an external frame for durability, a reel foot for easy attachment to the fly rod, an arbor for line storage, dispensing, and retrieval, an internal drag system that can help an angler maintain optimal fighting pressure against a fiercely running or very large fish, and of course, a handle to make the whole system go round.

Fly fishing reels are single-action, which means one revolution of the handle gives you a single revolution of the spool (multi-action or "multiplier" fly reels have been developed and marketed on and off for decades, but the best fly reel models have been of the single-action style).

Generally, the smallest and lightest fly reels are termed "standard arbor reels." Mid arbor designs boast a wider-diameter spool, yielding a slightly faster retrieve, and large arbor reels give the fastest line retrieval or pick up speeds available. When fishing for strong-running fish like steelhead, tarpon, bonefish, and other saltwater species, large and mid arbor fly reels are the most useful, as these fish can run toward an angler creating the need to gather line quickly.

Construction and Durability of best fly reels

Machined Aluminum
The most structurally sound reels are constructed of machined aluminum, entirely cut from bar stock in the way the David was carved from a block of marble. Elegant in their simplicity, machined reels are extremely dynamic, yet are comprised of the fewest assembled parts, so there's fewer things that can go wrong. Sophisticated design standards ensure these reels function as a smoothly spinning whole. Ounce for ounce, these reels are the strongest and most precise on the market. Drag systems can produce lots of friction and lots of heat. Machined reels also allow for ventilation in the system, reducing the possibility that the drag system will freeze or lock up due to overheating.

Anodization and Lubrication

Keeping grit and grime out of your fly reel is important. Low or no-maintenance lubrication and a durable finishing process are critical characteristics that increase the life of your reel and safeguard against mechanical breakdown.

Optimize the fly reel to perform its best

Smooth Rotation Engagement
Start-up inertia is the single biggest obstacle to landing a fish, whether line is coming in or the fish is running out. A reel that requires the smallest amount of energy to start turning, avoiding a "spike" in sudden resistance, is the best choice when seeking to reduce stress on a fish taking line. Such spikes in start-up energy can place stress on terminal tackle, snapping leaders and light tippet in an instant. In this respect, a fly reel is only as good as its drag system, and a drag system is only as good as the materials and design that go into it.

Cork Disc Drag

Drag systems employing cork and synthetic discs (usually Rulon) consistently perform at the top of industry standards. These are the smoothest systems around; they dampen the transition from stillness to rotation resulting in the least-jarring spool engagement and fewer fish lost to start-up jolts and other snags in the energy transfer system. That may sound like a mouthful, but it means fewer broken tippets and more successful landings. The materials that go into a great drag system must be durable enough to withstand high levels of pressure, heat, and friction. Retaining its shape no matter the drag pressure, treated cork has proven to be a superior drag material because of its compressibility.

Arbor

The arbor is the interior cylinder of the fly reel; it's what your fly line wraps around. Recent design trends have emphasized an arbor with a greater circumference. With large arbor reels, line coiling or "memory" is reduced, and the rate of line retrieval is increased. Most importantly, outgoing drag tension is mitigated as line is depleted, decreasing the chance of losing that once-in-a-lifetime trophy on a long run. Fishing a large arbor maintains a tighter connection with the fish, reducing slack and giving you more control over unpredictable fish-fighting conditions.

THREE FORKS RANCH, COLORADO


 


Three Forks Ranch Fishing:   

Situated in the high mountain aspens,
Three Forks Ranch straddles
the Wyoming Colorado border.  This 200,000-acre working cattle ranch is
one of the premier fishing destinations in the West.  Mountain streams
and springs breathe life into the Little Snake River right inside the
gate of the Colorado headquarters.  The headwaters of this river are
home to countless rainbow, cutthroat, and brook trout.  This fishery has
been the beneficiary of the largest privately funded river restoration
project in the history of America.  Once a drying giant,
new life has been given to the Little Snake River.  Sixteen miles of
the river has been restored to what Mother Nature may have wished it 150
years ago and 30 oxbow lakes now dot the property, all connected to the
river by reopened river channels and all home to wonderful, fighting
trout.


The typical week: The first day you and your guide will take
off to a stretch of river or lakes and assess your fishing prowess. 
From there you and your guide will decide which waters you would like to
fish.  Whether it's catching "big boys" in the lakes or testing your
3-weight rod on the South Fork, Three Forks Ranch has plenty of water
for the novice or the purist.   Four-wheeler trips or horseback trips to
the upper lakes are available if you choose.  For those that would like
a break from fishing, cattle drives are usually going on which you are
welcome to participate in; trail riding, wildlife viewing, hiking,
4-wheeling, and our 14-course sporting clay course are all available to
you.


Season - June 10th  through October 15th    

 

Three Forks Travel:

To get to Three Forks Ranch you will need to make travel arrangements to Hayden, Colorado, with connections through
Denver.  Three Forks runs a free shuttle to and from Hayden,
approximately 75 minutes.  There is also a county-owned airport with a
5500-foot paved landing strip at Dixon, Wyoming, that welcomes private
airplanes.  Shuttle is also available from Dixon, approximately 30
minutes. 

 

Three Forks also offers its own private aviation service from Denver to
Dixon Wyoming.  Flights in their five-seat twin engine King Air depart
for the lodge at 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. daily.  The cost is $750 per
person round trip and it is the most reliable service to the area.  If
you are interested in this flight option please contact us and we will
make the needed arrangements.  There is also a county-owned airport with
a 5500-foot paved landing strip at Dixon, Wyoming, that welcomes
private airplanes.  Shuttle is also available from Dixon, approximately
30 minutes.

 

Itinerary: Three Forks Ranch operates on a very flexible schedule. 
Various lengths of stays are available, from 6N/5D stays to 3N/2D
stays.  Select the length of stay you like and the day of arrival.  We
will do our best to schedule you in.  Early booking ensures the dates of
your choice.

 

Departure: The evening before your departure, all incidentals purchased
during the week should be paid in full.  We will have a driver ready to
take you to the airport for the various departure times

 

Three Forks Ranch Accommodations:

The River Rock Lodge will provide guests with relaxing enjoyment over hors d'oevres and cocktails followed by delicious
dinners served in our guest dining room. The accommodations are very
comfortable in our nicely appointed Aspen, Alpine and Hidden Valley
homes.  We do request that there be no smoking in any of the buildings. 
Smoking areas are provided on the decks of all the buildings.

 

The guest facilities are within walking distance to a large portion of
this incredible trout water.  But, with over 16 miles of private river
fishing and 14 miles of off-channel and oxbow fishing, one of the
lodge's superb fishing guides will escort you to the farthest reaches. 
Catering to a capacity of only 15 guests the fishing opportunities are
endless.  Personalized service, warm Western hospitality, and great
fishing are their trademarks.

 

Three Forks Ranch Meals:

All meals are taken at the River Rock Lodge and scheduled to the angling
conditions and where you will be fishing that day. On trips to the more
distant fishing locations the kitchen staff will prepare a wonderful
picnic lunch. Generally breakfast is between 7:00-8:00 a.m.  Fishing
times are later as we move into September.  After a full day of fishing,
you return to the lodge in time to relax before dinner, which is
usually served around 6:30 p.m.  Please let us know if you have any
dietary restrictions.

 

Alcoholic Beverages:

Three Forks Ranch provides complimentary beer, wine and your favorite
mixed drinks.  We suggest only moderate drinking before dinner hour. 
Wading can be dangerous and your
guide will decide when excessive drinking has impaired your ability to
fish safely.  Our elevation at the headquarters is 7200 feet.  Alcohol
can slow down your body's ability to adjust to the change in altitude. 
We also recommend that you drink plenty of water and get plenty of sleep
your first few nights on the ranch.


 


Three Forks Ranch Clothing:

Dress at Three Forks Ranch is casual and comfortable.  The weather can
change abruptly so be prepared.  The nights and mornings are cool,
sometimes in the 40's and the daytime temperatures can climb into the
80's.  It is best to dress in layers.  Long johns are often worn under
fishing pants and wool socks under waders.  On top, a flannel shirt,
warm sweater, rain jacket, down vest or jacket.

 

Included:

Round-trip transfer from Hayden, Colorado, or Dixon, Wyoming. 
Accommodations based on double occupancy; three meals per day;
knowledgeable guide per two fishermen with full fishing services;
transportation to and from the river on a daily basis; complimentary
beverages.  Horseback riding, 4-wheeling, hiking, wildlife tours, and
sporting clay course.

All scheduled commercial air transportation; fishing licenses, sales
tax, gratuities, tackle charges, telephone calls, and other incidental
purchases.

Leland on Simms Fishing Products It's funny how childhood memories can influence one's life! Just ask K.C. Walsh of Simms Fishing Products about the underlying theme of his company and its location. He'll tell you it was because his grandfather took him fly fishing in Bozeman, MT as a young man. Funny how what started as a desire by K.C. to work in the fly fishing industry, turned into the design of the world's best fishing waders and apparel. Funny how that vision of wader design transformed a company into one that now manufacturers what is considered by many to be the finest collection of fly fishing outdoor wear in the entire industry.

•  Sections: Four

•  Fuji ceramic stripping guides

•  Handle: High grade cork, custom tapered shaped half-wells

•  Reel Seat: Cocobolo insert, Dark Nickel colored aluminum

September 28, 2011 (San Francisco, CA): The origins of European nymphing might be up for debate—some say the Czech Republic, others Poland, some believe it has roots in Spain or France—but one thing is certain: regardless of where it began, the future of this innovative technique lies in the revolutionary design of the Sage ESN Fly Rod Series. The Sage ESN, short for European Style Nymphing, is meticulously engineered for outstanding sensitivity in turbulent runs and currents, where weighted nymph rigs are king and subtle strike detection is the name of the game.

It's all in the tip: If a trout so much as breathes on your fly, the Sage ESN Fly Rod will detect and transmit that vibration with unprecedented clarity. This heightened sensitivity in the rod tip is what sets the Sage ESN Fly Rod apart from the competition, harnessing the power of Sage's Konnetic Technology for unparalleled performance. In traditional indicator nymphing, the connection between angler and fly is interrupted by slack and missed visual cues. Simply put, strikes aren't detected and fish are lost. European nymphing supersedes the need for a strike indicator by relying on the subtle sensation of a fish on the take, and the Sage ESN Fly Rod's remarkably responsive tip grants the angler an acute read of the subsurface that other rods just can't provide. Sage ESN Fly Rods immediately relay every minute animation from tip to butt, providing comprehensive control of the action and relaying the most subtle strikes. This emphasis on “feeling the fish” has contributed to the zen-like following of European nymphing fanatics across the globe, all of whom will welcome the highly specialized design of the Sage ESN Series.


 
Hoover in the catch: The Sage ESN Fly Rod Series is optimized for pressured water and wily trout, providing you with a purpose-built instrument for one of the most effective fly fishing techniques around. It's not uncommon for competitors in European nymphing tournaments to bring in twenty fish an hour, leaving no time for missed opportunities and spit hooks. The Sage ESN is made for this level of fast paced action where every strike matters, transmitting subtle takes up the rod length for powerful hooks sets on the back end. At ten feet in length, Sage ESN Fly Rods are ideal for point-blank pocket water or more distant riffles, extending your touch to every square-inch of the water. If you love directing taut nymph rigs through slots and picking the pockets for trout, if you refuse call it a day until you've tied into every last fish, then the Sage ESN will be king of your quiver.
 
 
Konnetic™ Technology = More Fish:
Marking Sage's long-awaited entry into the world of European nymphing, the Sage ESN Series represents years of engineering made possible by groundbreaking new manufacturing process: Konnetic Technology. Konnetic Technology is the breakthrough that opened the door for ultra-lightweight, extremely efficient rods like the Sage ESN Series. Pioneered in Sage ONE Fly Rods, Konnetic Technology is perhaps best highlighted in the extremely fine, yet powerful, taper of the Sage ESN Series. The Sage ESN Fly Rod also features a compound taper mandral that allows for standout power in the butt section while maintaining the superior sensitivity of the narrow tip.
 
 

 

Sage ESN Fly Rods – Pro Review by Leland's Jon Ng

What's the word...

Sage has finally addressed the world of European nymphing with their new ESN Fly Rod Series, and what an entrance they've made. We had a chance fish some Czech nymphs with the Sage ESN 4100-4 Fly Rod, and although we didn't fair quite as well as some of the famed tournament nymphers, we still had a successful day and a lot of fun.

 

Features...

Instead of rambling on about the technicalities of Konnetic Technology, let's leave it at this: a narrower, more efficient taper means the Sage ESN telegraphs the slightest strikes down the rod length so you can set the hook.

 

Action...

The Sage ESN Fly Rod is a medium action and a compound taper mandral construction. Translation: with enough flex in the tip for a nuanced read of the underwater action and enough power in the butt for sturdy hook sets, the Sage ESN is the best of both worlds. Not to mention the lightweight design makes a day of high-sticking a breeze on your arm and a blast in the water.

 

Fit and Finish...

Sage doesn't miss a beat when they stamp their name on a new line of rods, and the ESN Series is no exception. The forest green shaft and gold trim wraps give the blank a great finish, similar in color to the famed Sage Z-Axis. The cocobolo reel seat is a personal favorite, and the choice to use aluminum instead of nickel silver improves performance without compromising the great look. Also, the Fuji ceramic stripping guides are a great touch and the mark of any quality rod.

 

 

Run Down...

 

Pros: In keeping with Sage's commitment to crafting the best tools for specific applications, the Sage ESN is true to it's name: an ultra-sensitive tip paired with a powerful butt for maximum success with European nymphing.

 

Cons: Although European nymphing is quickly amassing a following on this side of the pond, some might not have room in their quiver yet for this specific application. But for those who are in the know when it comes to contact nymphing, the Sage ESN is just what the doctor ordered.

 

Bottom Line: Sage has once again delivered on their promise to build the best possible rods for one of the most fun techniques around. The Sage ESN Series marks a welcomed entry into the world of European nymphing with the best best materials assembled by innovative minds.

The only exceptions to our FORP policy are special order or custom items and items on sale.  Our address for returns and exchange:


Leland Fly Fishing Company 
Attn: Exchange/Returns Dept.
24120 Arnold Drive

Sonoma, CA 94578


If you'd like to make an exchange, do so in one of two ways:

1) The Best Option is to immediately place an order for the replacement items. Do this online or over the phone with one of our fish whisperers. You will be billed for these items. At any time -- during, before, or after this second order -- you can ship us the unwanted items from your original order, and upon receipt of them here we will credit you for those items. Please use the back of your invoice for any comments, and include it (or a copy) with your return shipment. This method ensures the most efficient processing of your return, but more importantly, it ensures the best availability of the new outgoing replacement items.

2) The Second Best Option: Ship us the items you'd like to exchange. Please include a copy of your receipt and write instructions detailing the exchange (For example: "These Medium Waders are too small, exchange for size Large of the same wader.") In most cases, on receiving your original items, we'll issue a credit on the next Thursday. (If something comes up, we'll call you to get it straightened out.) Your replacement items will ship out within 2 business day and will be charged as a separate transaction. Please be aware that the hoped-for replacement items may sell out while your exchange is in transit. This is the reason that the above option is encouraged. If you'd like to make a return, please ship the items to the address above and include a copy of your receipt. In most cases, we'll issue a refund to the credit card you used for the original purchase on the first Thursday after receipt of your goods. If something comes up, we'll call you to get it straightened out. Worry not.

How long until my bank issues return credit?

A note on Credit Card Companies: In more than twenty five years of retail experience, we've seen that some banks and credit card companies are a bit slower in issuing credits to your account than they are in debiting it. As such, two charges might appear on your online statement or account balance for a brief period of time while your bank or credit card company goes through the credit-issuing process.

Do I have to pay sales tax?

If we are shipping your purchase to a destination outside of California, you won't be charged sales tax. For those orders sent within the state, you will be charged the appropriate rate.

Do you match prices?


Yes. We do our best to keep our prices as low as possible. But if one of our competitors goes lower, don't hesitate to ask us beat their price.
Please keep in mind that sometimes price-matching isn't as simple as it appears. We like to make sure we're comparing apples to apples. There can be great variation in the cost of bundled or kitted products.  Some retailers choose to cut corners by using second-rate products to round out their packages. When comparing prices, please make sure to keep an eye out for such details!

In order to consider a price matching request, we will require proper documentation:

(1) A link to a webpage showing the lower price.

(2) A forwarded email with the price quote, including the name of the retailer in order to ensure that they are an authorized dealer of the products they're promoting.

Then lets get you fishing with great product at 10% less.

Do you offer price protection?

Yes we do. If you purchase a product from us, and we end up reducing the price of that item within 60 days of your purchase, you are welcome to contact us and we will issue you a Leland gift card for the difference. This policy only applies if we have the same size and color of the item that you originally purchased in stock, as sometimes we'll reduce prices when we need to get the last few stragglers of a given product out the door.

Please note that our Price Protection policy will not be applicable to promotional discounts. Promotional discounts are not applicable to previous purchases.

Click here to return to the top.


We offer a straight-forward shipping policy. FedEx  Ground is our standard method of shipping, and we charge a straight  flat rate: ten bucks (US$10). Yes, that's right, only $10 for FedEx  Ground shipping within the Lower 48 States, for any size order!

Typically,  we will process your order and get it out the door within 1 or 2  business days (not including weekends). However, during our epic sales,  processing orders can take a little more time, so please be patient. If  time is tight and you need your new gear in a hurry, and FedEx Ground  Shipping will not work for your situation, we can expedite your order by  using FedEx OVERNIGHT, 2nd DAY AIR, EXPRESS SAVER (3-day service).

If  you have any concerns or questions whatsoever about shipping to your location, please contact us toll-free at 866-673-1959. You can reach us  from 9:00am to 5:00pm, US Pacific Time, Monday through Friday. If  you live beyond the boundaries of the Lower Forty-Eight United States,  in Hawaii, Alaska, or a US Territory like Puerto Rico, you'll be charged  a flat rate of $35.00 for FedEx expedited service. If you're outside the United States, we ship via FedEx International Economy for a flat rate of $60.00 USD.

detdesc:: Red Truck Fiberglass Fly Rod Review – By: Keith Westra

The Red Truck Fiberglass Outfit embodies fly fishing in its purest form. A throwback to vintage glass rods, this setup brings a modern, efficient feel to a classic era of rod making. It’s smooth, buttery action and perfect balance make it an absolute pleasure to fish and an outfit worthy of any trout fisher's collection.

Simply put, the Red Truck Glass Outfit is all about a simpler style of fly fishing. Just bring a small fly box, a few leaders, a spool of tippet and the Red Truck Glass outfit. It's like trout rehab in an age where the essence of the sport is overshadowed by “cutting-edge” materials and technologies.

A nice Upper Sacramento Rainbow caught using a hopper dropper rig.

 Upper Sac Rainbow 

Fiberglass Fly RodFirst Impression:

The team at Red Truck was able to take the best attributes of fiberglass and provide a much-needed upgrade. The Red Truck Fiberglass Fly Rod is light and smooth with just enough power; a welcome change from the heavy and noodly rods of yesteryear.  Plus, the outfit is incredibly easy to cast and the balanced line makes it extremely efficient.

Action:

The Red Truck Fly Rod’s Action is best described as stable yet buttery. It's soft tip makes for effortlessly subtle presentations, while a powerful lower section allows for easy casting when the wind picks up or you're using larger flies. The precisely balanced fly line stabilizes the rod and gets the most out of the rod's action.

The Reel:

The Diesel 3/4 feels like it was built to pair with our fiberglass rods. It’s classically styled cosmetics and click and pawl drag system make for the perfect complement to a rod that looks like it came from your grandad's collection. The click and pawl drag system is really a “set it and forget it” system. I set my drag just above half and it's good to go. The reel screams fly fishing every time you pull off line or hook a fish.

Fit and Finish:

Fiberglass Rod ReviewThe craftsmanship of Red Truck's Glass Outfit is apparent from the moment you pull it out of the tube. Beautiful maroon thread wraps adorn each hard chrome guide; the top grade cork is shaped into the most ergonomic grip I've ever fished; the rod blank has a nice, translucent honey color that is quintessentially fiberglass. The rod also comes in a retro aluminum tube with our patented Brews-Key, a rod cap with a built in bottle opener.

Bottom Line:

If you want an outfit that will inspire you to find new and exciting creeks, the Red Truck Fiberglass Outfit is your answer. This 7-foot 6-inch 3-piece rod lends itself perfectly to the best trout destinations and a proud heritage of craftsman fly rods. It's sure to be the sweetheart of your lineup and open up many miles of new water for those days off.



I love fishing this outfit on small freestone rivers and spring creeks. Where will your Red Truck take you?

More Reviews:

Jim Arce (Customer and Friend):

My son Paul just picked this as the first fly rod he ever selected all by himself . He is almost 10 and I got him a starter rod a couple of years ago. He saw this rod at the Fly Fishing Show and loved the design and color. He tried it out and cast it very well on his own. I cast it and loved it. It has a crisp medium action that reminds me of some of my bamboo rods--medium full flex and with an active tip. A very responsive rod for a new fly fisher. It was not a tough sell when he asked me if we could get it. We got the kit and love the reel, too. I can already see it will be hard to use it myselft because he likes it so much. A very classic outfit. We love it and can't wait to get it on the stream!

Bill Lowe (Guide on the Lower Yuba River):

Having fished a few glass rods back in the day I was skeptical at first but this rod is a perfect mix between classic action and power for those windy days. I would have no problem taking this as my only rod on a weekend trip in the mountains, it's that versatile! Also would make a great dry fly rod if your other rod is rigged for nymphing for the day.

RetroGLass (fiberglass aficionado):

I am a fiberglass nerd. I have 50 or so different fiberglass rods that range in price from 50-700 dollars. This rod is now one of the best rods in my collection. It lacks the charm of my older used outfits but as far a new rods on the market this outfit wins. I decided to get the balanced to cast the rod as the designer intended. This has proven to be a wise decision.

R Stevens (Customer and friend):

After making two casts I realized I had found the perfect rod for my favorite fishing. Dry flies on remote waters in the Sierra Nevada. The rod action makes it a treat to cast and with the classic reel this is a perfectly balanced outfit. This is definitely my go to rod from now on

JOHN DAY FLOAT TRIPS


 


John Day River Fishery and Trip:   

Running over 500 miles, the John Day
is the second longest
free-flowing stream in the United States. It is protected as a "Wild and
Scenic" river under Oregon Scenic Waterways Act. The country is
characterized by steep basalt canyon walls, juniper, and sagebrush
dotted hills, abandoned homesteads, and petroglyphs. This is one of the
most culturally rich river corridors in the state. Human presence in
this system spans more than 10,000 years. For thousands of years the
Northern Paiute lived on this river they called the Mah-Hah. In 1805
these canyon dwellers met their first Europeans, the Lewis and Clark
expedition. In 1812, the river was renamed the John Day after one of the
members of the Astor-Hunt overland party. It was the discovery of gold
in 1860 that advanced pioneer settlement. The John Day River is truly
the Grand Canyon of Oregon. The river's serpentine course through
vertical basalt cliffs has, at times, an almost haunting feel.

             

This river was also home to huge runs of Steelhead and the famous
Columbia River Chinook Salmon, which averaged over 100lbs. At present,
the system has one of the last all-wild runs of anadromous fish east of
the Cascade Mountains. The John Day River offers some of the best
Smallmouth Bass fishing in the country. In 1971, approximately 75
Smallmouth Bass were introduced to the river and since then they have
flourished! Bass season is at its peak from mid-June to the end of
August. It is not uncommon to hook in excess of 75 fish per rod per day.
These fish average from 8"-12', with larger fish in the 18"-20" range.
The big fish for 2002 was a 21.25" monster that weighed 6.4 lbs!! This
is the perfect river to introduce new flycasters to the sport, as the
fish are typically aggressive and plentiful. The majority of the fishing
is done from the boat and from the banks looking for feeding fish. When
the shade is on the water, anglers fish with poppers and surface bugs,
when the sun on the water anglers typically fish muddlers and woolly
buggers.


John Day bass trips are multi-day rafting, camping trips.
For our day float trips we use the Twinkingham to Priest Hole portion of
the river, or Service Creek to Twinkingham.  For our multi day camping
trips we use either the 30 mile, Twickingham to Clarno stretch or the 70
mile Clarno to Cottonwood segment. Camps are set-up each day by our
baggage crew as we progress down the river. When you arrive in camp, sit
back and relax, have a cocktail, or fish the camp water. Your tent for
the night will be set-up and your baggage will be waiting for you. All
meals are skillfully prepared streamside by our staff. The outfitter
takes a lot of pride in meals. A sample dinner menu might range from
Lamb brochettes with black olives and mint vinaigrette, Moroccan-spiced
chicken with rosemary oil, to good old dutch oven lasagna. The outfitter
provides hammocks, a unique luxury in the field, for afternoon siestas.
They also provide all of camping gear with the exception of your
sleeping bag and pillow. We carry all drinking water, however, we don
not provide alcohol. You are welcome to bring your own if you desire.
Please pack liquids in plastic containers only. Except good wines!!

 

John Day River Accommodations:

Camps will be set up in advance of your arrival by members of the staff.
Anglers need to bring their own sleeping bag and pillow but cots are
provided.

 

John Day River Clothing:

Quick dry shorts and pants, quick dry long sleeved shirts, Rain gear, fleece top, sun hat, river sandals, and camp shoes.

 

John Day River Travel:

If you have a private airplane there is a good airstrip in Condon, you
will be picked up at the airport. If you are flying commercially
Portland, Oregon is usually the best choice. Upon your arrival you will
need to rent a car and drive to Condon, Oregon (2.5 hours).   Please be
sure to get fishing license PRIOR to your arrival to Condon, they may be
purchased in Biggs Junction. The warehouse (541-384-6566) is located in
Condon at the corner of B & Fall Street. There are two lodging
options in Condon the Hotel Condon  www.hotelcondon.com 800-201- 6706, or the Motel Condon  541-384-2181.


Please make your reservations early as spaces fill up
quickly.  Also, please let us know where you are staying.  The guides
usually meet up with you the night before at the Condon Hotel
Restaurant.  If not, then meet at Cafe across street as 6 am. 

 

John Day River Climate:

Typical summer temperatures can range from the lower sixties to the mid
nineties. Rain, while unlikely, can occur so come prepared. 

 

Included:

Meals, accommodations, and guiding.


Not Included:

Overnight in Condon, wine, alcohol, licenses, flies, shuttles, and gratuities.

CLEARWATER LODGE


 


Welcome to eastern Shasta County's newest and most
remarkable fly fishing destination!  We've combined the ambiance,
elegance, and spacious accommodations of the extraordinary 1921 Arts and
Crafts-style Pit River Lodge with the talented guide staff, creative
menus, and renowned fly fishing schools of Clearwater House on Hat Creek
to create a brand new, full-service fly fishing destination. We offer
meals, accommodations, and guiding and instruction on northeastern
California's five great wild trout rivers and spring-fed stillwaters.

  

Clearwater Lodge Fishing : 

The Fall River

This famous spring creek rises clear and cold from Thousand Springs, in the shadow of Mt. Shasta, and flows nearly thirty miles
through the lush Fall River Valley.  Its large wild rainbows come
readily to a well-fished dry fly or nymph.  Fall River's legendary
hatches range from the tiny #22 Trico spinner to the giant #6 Hexagenia
mayfly.  Fall River is fished only from aluminum prams with electric
motors.


 


Hat Creek

Hat Creek is California's version of the chalk streams of southern
England where fly fishing was born.  Managed for wild trout only for
over twenty years, Hat's rich waters support a diverse insect population
and thousands of trout per mile in the three miles of Trophy Water. 
The fishing is tough on the flats, with large fussy trout, small flies,
and 7X tippets.  There is also over a mile of productive riffles and
runs for nymphing.  The evening caddis hatches often bring the fish to
the surface in a feeding frenzy.


 


The Pit River

The Pit might be the finest naturally-occuring wild trout fishery in
California.  The final 25 miles, below Lake Britton, are in a deep
canyon and are divided into three reaches by dams and powerhouses. 
Access is challenging, but the beauty of the canyon, the extensive
pockets and pools, and the high catch rate of bright wild fish are
perfect if you are an energetic wader.


 


The McCloud River

A classic pool and pocket water river in a magnificent wooded canyon,
the McCloud is northern California's most famous freestone fishery. 
McCloud rainbows are world renown.  Special regulations protect this
fishery and it produces trout to 24 inches, typically on nymphs and
streamers.  In the fall, spawning browns add an extra thrill.  The three
miles of Nature Conservancy water is zero-kill and limited to ten rods a
day.  We fish both this water and the six miles of public water above
the Conservancy.


 


The Upper Sacramento River

After a chemical spill in 1992 and subsequent closure for three years,
this classic little trout river has astonished everyone with the speed
and success of its recovery.  The rainbow are
back, all wild fish, and in remarkable numbers.  Nearly 40 miles of
pools, pockets, riffles, and runs, with relatively easy access and
wading and the promise that with continued enlightened management, the
Upper Sac will soon regain its place as one of California's premier wild
trout fisheries.


 


The Sacramento River Float Trips

The Sacramento below Redding has become recognized as a world-class
rainbow fishery.  We use drift boats to fish the excellent water between
Redding and Anderson, getting out on the gravel bars and islands to
wade and fish.  While it's mostly nymphing, there are good caddis
hatches from spring to fall.


 


Northeastern California Stillwaters

Baum Lake, Eastman Lake, Manzanita Lake, McCumber Lake, Eagle Lake,
McCoy Flats - these and other stillwaters around Clearwater offer
excellent fishing for outsized rainbow and browns.  We provide float
tubes and pontoon boats for our guests and guide many of these
fisheries.  If it's big fish you want, these stillwaters are the place. 
5 pound fish are frequent; 10 pounders not unknown.


 


Private Trophy Trout

The Hat Creek Ranch's two stillwaters and one half mile of Hat Creek
offers fee fishing for big, aggressive rainbows to 10 pounds.  A superb
private water for guided wading, bank fishing, and pontoon boat access.

            

Clearwater Lodge Accommodation:

The lodge features seven bedrooms, each with a private bath. The
adjoining Annex offers six singles and two large shared baths.  The
three Cottages, set among the oaks and pines and broad lawns, feature 2
and 3 bedroom suites.


Clearwater Lodge Clothing:

In the Pacific North West it is always possible to encounter a wide
variety of weather conditions.  We recommend that you always come well
prepared with different layers including lightweight long sleeve and
short-sleeved shirts, fleece top and bottoms, synthetic long underwear,
rain jacket, sun and rain hats and fishing gloves.  Evening attire at
the lodge is casual.

 

Clearwater Lodge Climate:

Temperatures typically range from the mid 50's to the mid 90's.  In the
summer it is usually quite warm during the day and cool in the evening. 
However, it is important for guests to be prepared for cold rainy
conditions throughout the season.

 

Clearwater Lodge Rates: Packages Vary, Call for details!




Included:


Accommodation, meals, guiding, rods, reels, and wading equipment.


Not Included:

State and local taxes, alcohol, fishing licenses, terminal tackle.

Leland on Simms Fishing Products It's funny how childhood memories can influence one's life! Just ask K.C. Walsh of Simms Fishing Products about the underlying theme of his company and its location. He'll tell you it was because his grandfather took him fly fishing in Bozeman, MT as a young man. Funny how what started as a desire by K.C. to work in the fly fishing industry, turned into the design of the world's best fishing waders and apparel. Funny how that vision of wader design transformed a company into one that now manufacturers what is considered by many to be the finest collection of fly fishing outdoor wear in the entire industry. Funny? Not really. Just great concepts and a lot of hard work: Welcome to Simms Fishing Products! At Leland Fly Fishing Outfitters, we carry and use only the best fly fishing gear. There's not enough time in our hurried world to worry about whether our chest waders or rain jackets are going to leak. We talk with K.C. quite frequently and love to listen about his passion for developing the most useful and highest quality fly fishing gear. We at Leland have toured the Simms factory, attended their numerous product seminars, and vigorously used and field tested their equipment and we can tell you flat out: Simms Fishing Products is doing it right!
