  1. I had a great time at Naknek River Camp fishing with Phil and Curt (curtisce) the week of 23 June. This was my 6th fishing trip to Alaska and my 5th trip at Naknek River Camp but I hadn’t been back since 2010. It was great to see Phyllis and Jim, the owners and their son James again. They are really interesting people and they always have fascinating stories to tell. This was my first trip flying straight through to King Salmon AK in a day. It seemed much closer than the other times when I overnighted in Anchorage on my way up there. It was so strange waking up in my own be
  2. I decided to post some smallmouth pictures of fish caught during a three day trip wading trip to New York State last month in hopes that this audience will be more appreciative than the guys at work. When we talk about our vacations and I talk about fishing, I receive comments like, “I hate fishing--it is so boring”. And, this comment is from a guy who goes to Florida with his family for a week and as far as I can tell, mainly just sets on the beach or swimming pool. Oh well, I suppose if everyone was as passionate about fishing as most of us on this board, then our fishing waters would be
  3. Thanks for the kind words everyone. Marty, I miss you and Pat and all of the other volunteers for Casting for Recover and Reeling and Healing in Missouri. We worked with a great group of folks. Those were very worthwhile programs and it’s a shame we weren’t able to keep them going. Best regards, --ozarkflyfisher
  4. Many of the folks that I’m currently working with are some of the most brilliant people that I have ever known. However, I have to say that I pity them for being completely ignorant of the pleasures of the sporting life. --ozarkflyfisher

  6. Phil, If you still have a spot open, I'll take it. Best regards, --Brian Ellis
  7. My grandparents were "B" Gunter and Ethyl Gunter and they lived down by the Kelly Ford.  It's nice to know the fishing gene is strong in the Gunter family tree.

    As a child I was with my father when he got bit by a copperhead while we were fishing the Kelly Shoal.  Lots of great memories also like fishing the Otto Rock and shooting the falls in our old canoes.

  8. That is interesting; I never knew Governor Nixon and Tom Nixon were related. Tom used to attend the FFF Southern Council Conclave in Mountain Home years ago. I think I was communications chairman of the FFF SOC when I heard of Tom’s Passing. If Rusty says Governor Nixon is a good fly fisherman, I believe him. One thing is for certain, one can’t get to that level of politics without being extremely smooooth when there is a need for it. I envy guides that have the opportunity to spend the day and fish with some famous people. However, when I bring up the subject with fly fishing g
  9. Rainbow Springs Lodge is located next to the outlet of Double Springs (a.k.a. Rainbow Springs) and is the third largest in the state of Missouri and the largest privately owned spring in Missouri. Besides me being an avid fly fisherman and our understanding of the significance of the spring on the property as the primary source of cold water for the North Fork River trout fishery, I have a family connection to the property. My Great Great Great Grandfather on my Mother’s side, John Wesley Gunter, Homesteaded the property the Spring is on in 1861. My Great Great Grandfather “Bud” Gunter sold
  10. The Virgin Group CEO said Tuesday that the British company's U.S. operations would move to the heartland city of Branson, Missouri See this! --Ozarkflyfisher
  11. Phil and Bill, Fantastic pictures and video!!!! It’s obvious that I great deal of planning, commitment, and dedication was required to make this trip come together. You achieved a very unique and wonderful wilderness adventure that few people will ever experience! I’m very happy for you both! Thank you for sharing!
