    Bald Eagles Northern California

    Many great expeditions down the Upper Sac this year. With all the water coming down from the peaks of Mount Shasta, I am still doing floats into August and by far this is my best year ever. The fishing was terrific this season with the prime months being May & June, with the normal slow down after July 21st as we entered the dreaded “Dogs Days Of Summer.” It’s always great to be out there, but just about every where this summer on all North State rivers, fishing in temps of a 100 or more were kind of slow on the fishing, but great on the eyes and the soul.

    Scenes like this in freezing temps can warm the soul, and just the thought of what could be in store this winter makes one want to get out more in the coming months, for this guide thinks, it will be even bigger than last year.

    Ralph on a hillside eating his daily catch, saving half for Marge his wife up with their new eaglet in the nest.

    As he enjoys another piece of the trout he caught in the Upper Sacramento River, Ralph’s a happy man these days, he’s got purpose, he’s got food for the family, life is good people!

    Trout fishing Pacific Northwest

    Meanwhile the trout are hungry after a long winter and for them, seeing bugs in the Upper Sac is like staring through a glass of English gin. As the summer progresses, the big selection and size dwindles from size 14 to size 20. You know how you are in late summer versus late fall, you’d trade in a t -bone steak for a nice glass of ice tea at supper. You don’t eat as much in the mid summer, most hunger appetites develop as the mornings get colder and thus is true for our slippery scaly friends who breath near their ears, extracting oxygen from the rivers they live in, and the colder, the better.

    As the summer progresses the rivers flows become less and looking for the edges of white water is paramount for success. High sticking, slowing the fly down and using very small nymphs is key.

    Game Face! Game Face! Game Face! We had all kinds of legends out on the water this year. It has been one for the ages, what a fantastic season we are having.

    Oh, looks like Marge & Ralph are out hunting for the new kid… That nest must weigh 250 lbs, it’s been there for over 25 years that I know of. Good on them, I hope they call it the “Love Shack!”

    This is a midge I tie for this time of year that has brought me and my clients success. I like to experiment tying various patterns, especially this time of year, the bug counts double people!! 🙂

    Looking at the bugs in the rivers is always helpful, this is a trout’s menu, just hanging there like a stocking at Christmas, and everyday is a holiday folks. This is a green caddis, the big 35 dollar Latin word is Rhyacophila, but most just say out on the river to a friend; “just pass me the green fricking bug bro, stop it with your big 35 dollar words.”

    (Dirty Quartz Crystal is where they find the most gold in, the iron mixture can form gold, keep looking for them…)

    But as you can see, the term; “Match the hatch.” truly is symbolic here, you can sit down at the vise and learn how to make your bugs look like what’s out on the water. Plus saving yourself a lot of money buying them all the time at the fly shops for a buck fifty more . I want to offer any of my clients at anytime, if you book a trip with Jack Trout Fly Fishing International, you get a free fly tying lesson at my house. This is a great offer for families with kids, especially ones going to college and can’t get out enough with the school load. Learning to tie flies can help you prepare for the next time you’re out on the water. It’ s really a great hobby and everyday, I like to tie at least 6 bugs, it’s something I really look forward to. So all you out there that want to learn, come on by!

    Hugs & high fives, Jack Trout

    (You might also learn a few 35 dollar words.)

    I just returned from traveling the Oregon coast and Northern California with my husband and twin teenagers. A great trip that included a side trip inland across Grant’s Pass to Mount Shasta. Here we met our private guide Dale Langstaff who spent the afternoon dividing his time between the 4 of us as he introduced us to fly fishing. Dale works for Jack Trout Fly Fishing business. It was such a great day. Perfect weather. Dale provided us with everything we needed-poles, flies, waders, and boots. Carola (Jack’s sweet wife kept good communication with us as to where to stay/eat/and obtain a license prior to our trip). Dale was very patient as he gave us individualized instruction on technique with casting and the art of landing the fly upriver so as to mimic an actual fly. He was very knowledgeable as to the river, the local fish and the various flies and ties. He further told us about the Mount Shasta area, (since he was raised there) as he cooked us a delicious riverside lunch. It was a lot of fun-something we always wanted to try. We would highly recommend this trip and having Dale as a guide. We hope we can someday go again! Maybe Belize?

    Fall River Fly Fishing

    GUIDE ART TETER FALL RIVER GUIDE EXPERT OVER 25 YEARS EXPERIENCE & AREA RESIDENT.

    Some  of the trout grow to enormous sizes and when you take into account that you could possible catch these monsters on dry flies and that some of the biggest trout are caught in the fall on Fall River, this might be a place to consider, especially if you plan to come up to our area for multiple days.

    Fall River Valley is home to several Lakes including Fall River Lake, Eastman Lake and Big Lake.These tributaries include the Fall River, Tule River, Ja-She Creek, Lava Creek, Bear Creek, Shelly Creek and Pit River. Together they span much of the Valley forming one of the largest systems of fresh water springs in the country. These waters culminate in a splendid waterfall south of the Town of Fall River Mills and again at a viewing point off State Highway 299 West of Fall River Mills. The Valley is home to the Ahjumawi Lava Springs State Park, located north of the Fall River-McArthur Town Center. This state park is unique in that it is accessible only by water. Fall River is unique in that the waters that flows in this amazing spring creek originate from the peaks of the largest profile in North America, Mount Shasta. (14,162 feet or 11,000 vertical feet) Flowing from some 50 miles away, it’s icy lava tubed aquifers carries these waters to replenish the Fall River Valley and all of it’s inhabitants that rely its miracle everyday.

    Hex Hatch Fall River Fly Fishing Guides

    The Coveted Hex Hatch that comes out every June is the largest of all mayflies and comes out right before dark. The river comes alive with trout jumping all over the place like someone is throwing out bowling balls from the shorelines in light I’ve seen better in, in some disco lounge from the 1970’s. Sometimes your hearing is more important than your gun sight.

    Kids love Fall River, especially with mom or dad, it’s certainly a trip highlight in the making.

    My dad use to say; “You get to add three inches if you catch it on a dry fly!” 🙂 Good on ya Pops!

    Upper Sacramento Banner Fly Fishing

    Back on the Sac! Life is all about winning and slapping high fives, being apart of the solution for getting you back to nature. The only thing in this world that is perfect is nature, the rest is naturally imperfect. jt

    Wading, fishing, catching, feeling the water as it brushes against your legs and you feel completed. You’re back to square one, you’re ready for anything, because you embraced your nature and it stuck with you.

    Natures treasures.. That’s what I’m talking about, the full circle of life and staying on top of your game. You know how you feel when enough is enough, it’s time to get back out there, feel the magic at your feet.

    Might like to go down with him, check out the views, get a little crazy and really enjoy the water you’re in.

    Bring your pops with you, having some big time bonding moments, something you both will never forget.

    Catch the most amazing and beautiful trout of your life in surroundings you can call your second home.

    You got friends out there, we’ll be with you all the way.

    Always amazes me when we catch trout in this clear of water so close to the boat.

    Some of which are very respectable, worth bragging about, that’s why we release them, we like them big!

    What a honey!

    Some times a client brings a unique fly and that’s the fly of the day. You never know, I always think of it as a team effort, if you got them. otherwise, I’m tying everyday and all of my guides have you covered. We offer all the gear with our trips, including flies and one of the best shore lunches in the industry.

    I anticipated just a fly fishing trip on a raft. What I experienced was an extraordinary adventure! As soon as Jack and I launched the raft. I made my first cast and landed my first fish of the day. I expected a day of quiet drifting and plenty of fish. I could not have imagined the thrills and scenery that lay ahead: the class III and IV rapids between pools, the splendor of the forested canyons, the eagle siting. Jack’s knowledge of the river, his stories, his wife Carola’s gourmet lunches, all added to this amazing adventure.
    Gerry H. Dallas, TX

    One of my favorite runs is from Sims to Pollard, so many places to stop and fish, plus tons of pocket water.

    Great rapids that take ones breath away! 🙂

    Some real rod bending anvils with a motor in this river, for about a 2 week period, we were having a hard time landing some of the bigger trout up from Shasta Lake.

    Ripping out line like a Greyhound trying to catch up to Joey Chestnut on the 4th of July!

    Another one for the record books, the best year ever on the Upper Sac Raft Fly Fishing Trip, in 22 years.

    For my 59th birthday my lovely wife Susan paid for a rafting/fishing trip on the Upper Sacramento River and for the guide I chose Jack Trout, whom I have been listening to/ following for years. As my only other guided trip was a joyless experience I wanted to make sure this one was fun and Jack did not disappoint. My buddy John (a complete fly-fishing novice) and I(whatever the fly-fishing equivalent of a duffer is) sorely tested Jack’s skills with our ineptitude yet he maintained a positive attitude throughout the trip. He put us on a bunch of fish(of course the newbie got more!), one of which would have made Ahab drool. Jack’s lovely wife Carola made real food for our lunch, not some stiff, pre-packaged sandwiches. The fish, the float, the food-all of it added up to a real good time. If the two of us couldn’t destroy Jack’s sense of humor and professionalism, I doubt such a thing is possible. It is clear he earns every penny of the price of a trip, this one in spades! Get on up to the Shasta area and give him a call, you won’t regret it! And be forewarned, Jack- we’ll be back!

    Snaggle Tooth Rapids

    There is only one thing better then being with your son’s. That is trout fishing with your son’s.

    I asked Jack Trout to deliver a great trip for my son’s. He hit the ball out of the park.

    Historian, ecologist, storyteller and yes, lover of everything trout. Jack will deliver.

    Couples fly fishing, what could be better than being and learning a new sport with the one you love.

    Bends are always good to fish on any river, it provides fish with cover and are easily fished from the shorelines.

    Success! Another beginner that walks away with more knowledge then when they showed up.

    That’s so cool! I don’t claim to be the best guide out on the river, just one with a purpose to teach and have fun.

    Beef saw a trout rise folks!

    Happy Campers is what I’m talking about in an environment that’s all about good.

    Still working good by the end of July folks…

    So we high stick the fly by hold the tip up a little to slow the fly down and allow the trout to see the fly suspended making it an easy meal, almost spoon feeding it to the trout, while staying attached by lifting the line up.

    Some days are boat days, some days we need to get out and access closer to the shores without scaring the trout wit the boat, it all depends on the day..

    But the usual success prevails based on what the guide figures out during the day, the bug selection and locations that are key. If there ever was a year where you needed to hire a guide, it was this season.

    Lunkers usually caught right before we end the trip is the most rewarding part of the day.

    Midges at the vise are important this time of year as variations of this pattern is something not always found at fly shops and not for 36 cents tied on your vise at home or on the water.

    Make a creation that screams to the trout, only one that you could dream up if given the chance.

    Beef Dog in a dream he had last night…

    It’s hot out there! It’s a good thing this breed came from a place that’s even hotter.

    Fly fishing guides for kids

    Jack Trout Fly Fishing International is the beginners and kids fly fishing guide service. That’s why we are the #1 fly fishing outfitter in the world on Tripadvisor, no one else in California is even close. Plus you can count on always the gear being included in our price and the best shore lunch in the industry, we are not into serving sandwiches folks.

    Sucess is what we are into, teaching the youth skills that can help them in their lives down the road.

    Like how to catch your first trout on a fly rod, the most important things to know in life, like how to access nature with family.

    Now that’s what life should be about, not iphones, tv or anything man made.

    Jack Trout is the real deal as a well seasoned, expert guide for fly fishing. Be sure your ready for an exhilarating adventure and a satisfying, unique experience. With my 8-year-old daughter, wife and mother-in-law, we drove off-road a bit and trekked along the McCloud River easily landing 7 Rainbow Trout! Jack provided the reels & tackle and provided real time instruction on the fly (puns intended). My daughter was ecstatic with her 6 catches and enjoyed the company of Jack’s sweet collie,”Beef”.

    Next, we hiked over some pretty hairy cliffs overlooking the fierce river rapids below the dam. If you go to that spot, you may want to wear thin life jackets in case anyone slides into river! My wife landed a sizable Rainbow Trout there. All-in-all, a fantastic family experience! We look forward to the next time!

    Bald Eagle Facts & Trivia

    • Male bald eagles weigh between 7 and 10 pounds. Females are considerably larger, weighing up to 14 pounds.
    • A bald eagle’s wingspan ranges from 75 – 90 inches.
    • A bald eagle’s eyesight is estimated to be 5 to 6 times sharper than a human’s.
    • An eagle can consume one pound of fish in about four minutes.
    • The bald eagle was adopted as our national symbol on June 20th, 1782.
    • Wild bald eagles may live as long as thirty years.

    • Bald eagles are capable of carrying a little more than half their own weight in flight, up to 8 pounds.
    • Bald eagles are exceptional swimmers. If they catch a fish which is too big for them to carry in flight, they will swim with it to the shore.
    • Bald eagles require old-growth forests of coniferous or hardwood trees for perching, roosting, and nesting. They will often build their nests in trees that have good visibility of a nearby waterway.
    • Most bald eagle fatalities are either directly or indirectly human related. Common causes of death are trauma cause by impact with man-made structures, gunshot, poisoning, trapping, and electrocution.
    • After Bald eagles were protected through the Endangered Species Act of 1966, and DDT was banned in 1972, bald eagle numbers dramatically shot up. In 2007, the bald eagle was removed from the list of protected and endangered species.
    • In addition to being the national bird of the United States, the bald eagle is seen as sacred in many Native American cultures. Many are considered messengers of the Gods, and eagle feathers are often used in ceremonial costumes and headdresses.
    • Bald eagles fly at a speed of around 30 miles per hour, and while gliding can reach up to 45 miles per hour. When diving, they can reach speeds of up to 100 miles per hour.
    • An adult bald eagle’s 2 inch long talons are capable of exerting a force of 1,000 pounds of pressure per square inch.
    • Bald eagles have up to 7000 feathers which are composed of keratin, the same material which makes up human hair and nails.
    • An eagle can fly up to 10,000 feet.
    • Hunting area varies from 1,700 to 10,000 acres. Home range size is smaller where food is more abundant.
    • Once paired, bald eagles remain together until one dies.
    • Bald eagle nests are among the largest in the world. On average, bald eagle nests are 2 – 4 feet deep and 4 – 5 feet wide. The largest nest ever found was 20 feet deep and 9.5 feet wide and weighed over 2 tons.
    • Bald eagles lay from one to three eggs and incubation is 35 days.
    • Incubation duties are shared by both male and female bald eagles.
    • The nesting cycle is about 20 weeks – from preparing the nest to the young leaving it.

    Fly fishing Lower Klamath river

    Hey Jack, we could definitely fish those days!
    The 15th would be best for me, but between Neal and myself we have it open. There are still a lot of fish in the estuary, but up river should be picking up especially with the little bit of weather we are supposed to get today and the pressure change. Starting to see numbers of steelhead as well as still seeing salmon around.
    Thanks.
    Kenton

    Sea Run Cutthroats Lower Klamath

    This pic is from David’s trip. The coastal cutthroat fishing in the estuary is pretty unbelievable, the fish are obviously a little smaller, but they are always there and some good sized ones.

    July is the time this year for salmon in the estuary, it’s a great month and we catch a lot of really nice fish. I’ve been fishing the Rouge and Chetco bays as well and have done very good. I have a few pictures if you need them.

    Thanks.

    LOWER FEATHER RIVER, OROVILLE CALIFORNIA

    Lower Feather Spey Fishing

    Jack,

    I wanted to thank you so much for making our trip a truly memorable one. My Son and I had a fantastic time both days! Your true professionalism and attention to detail was just fabulous. Our day on the Upper Sac was a blast. Both Andrew and I love to be involved and helping you along the way made the day very special. The scenery and beauty were almost as nice as the lunch you prepared, Ha Ha. As you mentioned the coach always looks good when the team is winning and your call for us to go to the Feather River was right on point. Ryan was great! His interaction with Andrew and his teaching us both made the day very successful. OK, the 20 or so fish helped as well!!

    Hope to see you again very soon!

    Once again, Thank you very much for a great experience.

    Regards,

    Mike Myers

    My guides are ready for you over on the Lower Feather River, the steelhead season has already started.

    My guides Ryan Williams & Kayla Katayama both drifting the river fly fishing with rods and micro spey rods for steelhead and half pounders, lots of happy clients this season.

    Whoohooo Team Trout !!

    Andrew Meyers on break from UNR Wolfpack loved his adventures both on the Upper Sac float and then the Feather River the next day on the way home.

    Mike Meyers ladies and gentlemen! What a great guy, actually won a national championship with Joe Paterno, his dad proudly wears the ring that went with that undefeated season, that’s a huge bonus about being a guide and meeting all these interesting people while out on the job.

    FEATHER RIVER 
    The Feather is fishing surprisingly good right now, at least by August standards. Great numbers of smaller fish with a few bigger around. We’ve taken fish this last month swinging wholly buggers and nymphing. Fox poopahs and bird nests have been top producers. Along with various mayfly nymphs. Mornings into the afternoon, both swinging and nymphing has been good, while all tactics including dry flies can be used in the evenings.

    Steelhead Fly Fishing Feather River

    She caught this beauty in the Feather River on her micro spey rod. Kayla is a senior at Chico State University, she is ready to help instruct any women, kids or polite adults. Another great female guide that rows a drift boat and guides fly fishing in Northern California and that’s a great thing!

    When we do these trips on the Feather River, we like to break up the day by wading the river a little and then float it some more.

    Lots of these nice healthy steelhead that give you a great fight always.

    Even pops getting into the action!!

    Fish on!

    Kayla and her expertise in spey casting, showing mom how to cast out of the drift boat.

    With success I might add, this is one serious guide who has a lot of fun out with our clients.

    Give us a call to arrange your fly fishing trip this fall on the Lower Feather.

    Ryan Williams our fly fishing bass expert, fly tying guru and inventor on fly fishing with success on Clear Lake is busy pioneering more things out on his skiff.

    Flies that creatively catch fish is what Ryan Williams is all about. I’ve caught blacktip sharks in Cuba with his flies, I’ve caught monster browns in Chile with his flies and numerous others here locally with his patterns and devised cleverness. When it come to guides and new innovative ways to catch them, better hook up with Ryan Williams, he’s the bomb as they would say these days.

    Lower Sac Stripers
    Action has been good. We take the drift boat out for these and it’s a very long float. Great to get away from crowds and finding solitude, but it get’s hot and casting 9wts and shooting heads all day is allot of work. We’re getting about 20-25 hookups each drift. Lots of smaller schoolie fish. However each drift we’re seeming to get at least one “keeper size” fish from 4-9lbs. Action should remain good for the rest of the month and into September a bit.
     Lake Oroville Bass On The Fly –
    Lake Oroville
    Action is good to great. Fishing about 90% topwater right now for spotted bass and largemouth. Been an exceptional summer for largemouth. Stripping big unweighted baitfish streamers on a floating line is producing good as well. Fun for visual takes. Very aggressive takes right now. Fish seem to be settling into the current dropping water levels. Big fish that have been sitting deep are sticking tight their usual cover, as the water drops it gives us a chance to target them in depths suitable for topwater. Some days, fish can average around 1-2lbs, while other trips fish we’ve seen fish to 5lbs. 
    Guide Tip: Fish early mornings into the afternoon, or from 5:00pm until dark. Fish shallower areas for bigger fish.
    Clear Lake
    Action has been great. August is the prime month for fly fishing here. Fish are really aggressive and boat traffic is lighter than July. This is the month where 50-60+ hookup days become a possibility stripping streamers. Look for fish boiling on the surface. The bass are really keying in on shad right now which is perfect for the fly rod. Anything from full intermediate lines to Type 6 shooting heads do the trick depending on the depth. 
        “I just got off the lake, spent the first half of the day locating fish, but once I found them, I stayed anchored in one spot for about 1.5-2 hours, and had around 30+ hookups. All 1-2.5lbs. Saw over 100 blowups all around me. Was literally watching shad going full speed on the surface, to leap and fall into bass’ mouths as they slashed the top.”

    My friend and I decided at the very last moment to go fly fishing for bones and tarpon in Cuba….
    We contacted Jack Trout and he hooked us up with the most knowledgeable and fun to fish with guide (Felipe). We had the best time ever!!!!
    I would highly recommend Jack and his stuff to my friends!

    Havana fishing trips

    We have developed a wonder trip for fly fishing 2 and half hours from Havana, Cuba in the Bay of Pigs.

    If needed, all the gear is included and lunch and we have had many successful trips.

    www.cubaflyfishguide.com

    Our clients have caught fish on fly rods from 8 wt. to 12 wt. including, tarpon, bones fish, permit, snapper, barracuda and shark. Give us a call to go over what you would need to bring, to have it all dialed for your trip.

    Catching baby tarpon in the flats of the Caribbean is got to be on the top of my list for personal fly fishing travel adventure, some of the best left in all of the world. I really love Cuba, but it’s not just the fishing.

    Tours For Cruise Ships Havana

    1st. Day tour in Havana city (regular program, from 9.00 am to 3.30 pm).

    – A walking tour around the historic part of Old Havana, which is a UNESCO heritage site since 1982 after the great colonial architecture very well preserved in that area where people can really see and appreciate a mix on different influences of architecture styles from the XVI to the XIX century and some stunning European style squares. Some stops could be arranged for drinks, photos and at to interesting historical places like: the old late XIX French style pharmacy, the hotel Hemingway used to stop every time he used to stay in Havana city, the old city scale model building, and many others. l The walking tour may last about 2 hours, so clients should consider to bring comfortable shoes with them.

    – A brief panoramic tour around the center of Havana city where some iconic buildings and spots are located such as: the Capitol building, the Grand Theatre of Havana, Central Park, Padro High Street, the revolution museum and the National Art Museum. The tour guide will give information about this centric area and couple stops for photos could be arranged if the clients may be interested.

    – Visit to the Revolution Square, which is the most important square in Cuba relates to the Revolution history and it has been the main scenario of political speeches, workers and military parades, so political concerts. Stops for photos and a short walk.

    – A visit to a cigar store for those who are interested on buying authentic Cuban cigars. We normally take our clients to the government store where they sell only the real and very fresh ones. We don’t recommend getting cigars on the black market as it is against the law and you are never sure if they are selling you fakes cigars or not. A 30 min cigar factory tour could be book but is only available from Monday to Fridays as workers have Saturday and Sunday off. Prices for prestigious Cuban cigar brands: from 7.00 to 22.00 CUC depending on the brand, size and strength. (The cigar factory tour price is: 10 CUC per person not included in the Havana city tour price).

    – A brief stop at the metropolitan Almendares Park located between the Vedado district and Miramar. This is for sure an excellent place for those who appreciate an always green and natural forestry area for taking wonderful photos. It is mostly used by local people for family meetings, picnics, photography and religion rituals.

    – Panoramic tour around some 1930’s, 1940’s and 1950’s neighborhoods such as: Miramar that it was the richest people area before the Revolution victory and the embassy are now days, Malecon promenade and  Vedado close to the American embassy and national hotel.

    – Lunch time in a local private restaurant (price not included in the tour).

    —————

    2nd Day tour (external areas and some Ernest Hemingway places,  from 9.00 am to 3.30 pm).

    – Exploring of important places at the other side of Havana city Bay where big Spanish colonial fortresses are located which are used for protection from the pirates attacks and Spanish empire enemies. Stops by the Morro Castle for a fantastic panoramic picture of a big part of the city, some minutes at the 1962 missile crisis military exhibition and Jesus Christ Park.

    – A visit to Jose Fuster street artwork project which since the 1990’s has been the most significant open artwork neighbourhood in Havana city inspired by the catalan artist Antonio Gaudi.

    Tours to Vinales Valley Cuba

    Viñales tour

    Viñales day tour, leaving Havana at 8.00 am and arriving back to the hotel about 6.00 pm (from Havana city, from Varadero the departure time and price have to be readjusted). Total distance one way: 165 km (2 h and 30 min). This program includes:

    – The visit to the Indian Cave, which is an small cave located inside one of the monolithics of about 250 meters long. Part of the tour in this cave is by boat, so at some points of the day when the cave might be full of tourist clients can easily wait for up to one hour to jump on the boats. I recommend to make a decision on the tour day. The cover for getting in is 5 CUC per person (not included on the tour price).

     

    – A visit to a local tropical botanical garden that has been kept for one family in Viñales for about 100 years. (Optional) Price: free.

     

    – Lunch time at a local restaurant (not included on the tour price).

    Our guide Jesse Aguilar with our client Leticia and her daughter, had a great tour this week out to Santa Maria Beach.

    My family and I had 2 tours with Cuba Classic Tours. Our guides were friendly and well informed. I would definitely recommend seeing Cuba with them. Both tour guides provided loads of information during the tour and were open to questions.

    We toured Havana on 1 day and Matanzas on another. You really need good walking shoes and if you’re going to the cave, no sandals, wear sneakers.

    Also the tours were based on what we were interested in seeing.

    Absolutely wonderful.  Leticia

    Museum Tours Havana Cuba

    Hi Jack:

    “Excellent tour”, was what Michelle and her husband said after I asked them
    their opinion on the tour around Havana city today. We are changing the
    tour destination tomorrow. Instead of Viñales they are taking the
    Matanzas-Hershey tour plus time at the beach for the same price. They want
    to have a great time at a Cuban beach.

    Hugs buddy,

    Jesse

    I contacted Jack after a lot of research on fishing guides in Patagonia and boy did it payoff!

    I was a little worried at first because 1) we were on a cruise ship which meant tight schedule. and 2) the day of our port was Christmas Day.
    Neither of these proved to be issues and everything went smoothly.

    Communication is excellent, Jack or his wife are very responsive, i had no issues getting answers to m questions. Everything is in order and super smooth from initial booking, to meeting details, to sizing equipment.

    They hooked us up with a fantastic guide in Punta Arenas, Rafael. He was knowledgeable not just about fishing but about the area, he was funny, and he was a great sandwich maker!!

    On the way to the river, he had no issue telling us about the area or pulling over to show us things, we saw wild flamingos, parrots, rheas, ducks, and a blue eagle!

    Once on the water he had all the gear we needed, everything fit perfectly. He had me on my first Patagonia trout with in 15 minutes of getting on the water! 18.5″

    I am a seasoned flyfisherman but this was my wifes first attempt. he was very patient with her and was a great teacher! She was on a fish not long after my first!

    We each caught 3 trout, my wife caught 2 20 inchers! Rafeal also had a fantastic lunch for us, like i said expert sandwich maker!

    He was punctual, met us on time and had us back to the boat on time, big deal as like i said we were on a tight schedule being on a cruise ship.

    I have hired a few guides in my time, but Jack/Rafael were hands down the best i have every had.

    I will be planning a trip to California to have Jack put me on some big Rainbows!

    Thanks for watching folks! Jack Trout – 530-926-4540
