Pacific NW Steelies Eat OH Tubes!

Jeff Liskay, Patagonia Fishing Ambassador and member of Team Fishdog, had a chance to check out the record steelhead run on the Deschutes River in Oregon recently. Jeff was well stocked with a supply of OH tube patterns that Deschutes steelies had no problem hitting. This fish ate a no-name pattern of black and chartreuse fur, feathers, and scale mirror flash with a Eumer Monster Cone in front.

Jeff was fishing a Scott T2H rod with his favorite Nautilus reel. The line was a SA Supra Skagit with a length of Express 14 in front.

A New Face At ACS!

A double-dog woof to welcome a new face with ACS. Ted Heitman lives in the St. Louis area and will help JD keep track of things in MO, KS, and other far reaches of the ACS umbrella. Ted has years of experience in the fly fishing and outdoor industry and is a long-time Scott rod fan. We are looking forward to having him help spread the word!

A Turkey Trot

I went over to my buddy George's place to work on the drift boat, and found two turkeys eating grapes in his little vineyard. I sent the Fish Dog out for turkey recon and one flew up into a tree and this one ran, actually trotted, up the hill and into the woods.

This is in Hinckley, OH, about 15 miles from downtown Cleveland. Hinckley is known for it's festival each year that celebrates the return of turkey buzzards each spring. Obviously, wild turkeys have found their way back, too!
