Our staff has been busy at the lighter weight gear in the past weeks, and John Miller our 'resident nomad' has been hard at it with clients.
With clients on the water regularly, John has been hunting like a well trained bird dog, the monster browns and bows of the Delaware River system. As the photos below show, I think he's a good dog :)
I really love the photo he snapped of a fellow guide a few days ago. For those who don't know, John Miller is also a world class photographer. You can see his bug photos in Orvis bug books and some stellar, bigger than life bug shots at Catch Magazine (look for the November issue).
A BEAUTIFUL SHOT OF A FELLOW GUIDES
DRIFT BOAT WITH FISH ON.
A YOUNG MAN WITH AN OLD, WELL FED FISH!
Every guide needs a break to hit the water for themselves, and it is good to see that John has been doing so every chance he gets. Here is another fine example of a fine fish taken on dries.
Here are some more photos from successful trips in the past couple of weeks. The smiles onthe clients faces say it all!
If you are interested in getting out for some of the easts best big trout let us know. John would love to show you the other side of his guide life and I'm sure that Sam and the boys at WBA would love to meet you as well.
In closing, the photo above says it all. What you see in this photo are anglers in the midst of a massive caddis hatch. I don't know about you, but that is one moment in time that I wouldn't mind choking on bugs. I guess that says a lot about my love for trout!
Until next time, tight lines......
