For SAO, 2009 was a banner year! More bookings than ever! More destinations than ever! And a new and improved SAO now in partnership with many shops across the region. 2009 also brought the start of another company that works in close partnership with SAO and that is Flybum Media Productions. Together, SAO/FMP is accomplishing some cool things....however 2010 is sure to be a blowout year in what we have planned to do.
In 2010, we already have trips booked up for a return to Alaska and our steelhead bookings are already into 2011. If you are interested in fishing with us, don't hesitate to call in advance to get the best dates. Also, if you are interested in Alaska 2011, we are headed back and taking deposits now.
The year has already got off to a great start with our show season under way. The first show for us this year was the 3rd Annual, Indiana On The Fly show in Indianapolis, IN. It was a great show with many great names in the industry in attendance.
I was fortunate enough to be invited as one of just a few presenters at the show, and so, I gave it everything I had....well, almost. It was nice to have such a packed house for a presentation...for those in attendance, you made it a blast!
As a part of the presentation, I had promised the founder of the show a brand new, hot off the press, highlight video of Steelhead Alley. I was pressed for time, but got the job done and I think we came off with a pretty nice finished product.....at least that is what I got for feedback.
So, looking to 2010, we are excited! Oh, and if you aren't excited about 2010, check out this highlight of 2009.....perhaps it will get your excitement going again.

Until next time, keep your eyes on the vise and fill your boxes.....or just get to the computer and edit some warmer season video. Regardless, enjoy the season and we will see you soon at a show near you!
