Fishing Report, Trip Openings, & Help out our Friend
The Pennsylvania trout fishing season opened last Saturday. It was a cold, rainy day and the
turnout here was light. However, the days and nights have gotten warmer this week and that brought out the fishermen and there has even been some dry fly fishing. Little blue quills and early black stoneflies have been hatching sporadically each afternoon. The water level is good and pheasant tails, beadheads, and prince nymphs have been working well. We're hoping to see Hendricksons by the weekend.
The hatches have started and it's exciting to see our favorite spring flies again. We hope you're getting out to enjoy the early spring fishing. It won't last long.
The world is traveling again. Airline numbers are up, hotels and restaurants are open, and we are returning to places that we've missed and couldn't get to for a couple years. We just got home from a month in Argentina and we have to say that the streams, lakes, spring creeks and rivers have all been rested and we found the fishing amazing. Likewise, all of the reports from Africa are that the camps are comfortably full, not over-flowing, the animals are enjoying fewer vehicles on the plains, and the experience presently offered is beyond expectations. This is the year to be on safari in Africa!
We have a few openings available on our deluxe safari this summer, July 20 to August 3. This safari is timed for the annual migration of over 2 million animals across East Africa's Serengeti-Mara ecosystem, one of the greatest spectacles in the natural world. From the comfort of our safari vehicle watch as a half million wildebeest, 500,000 Thomson's gazelle and 200,000 zebra make their way across the Serengeti in search of grass, followed by lions, leopards, hyenas, and other predators.
This is a carefully designed custom safari and encompasses everything that romanticizes
the African safari; deluxe accommodations, Hemingway style safari experience, animals and sunsets (as only Africa can do) and a superb combination of the best equipped lodges and camps in E. Africa.
We also recently had one room open up on our Spain departure, October 10-17, for trout fishing in the Eastern Pyrenees. While it's a great fishing trip for the anglers, it is a fun trip f
or a non-angler as they have their own tour guide and private coach each day to explore and sight see.

Frontier's Friend, Mike Ledezma
Mike Ledezma is the manager at Grand Slam Lodge, a fishing lodge located in Punta Allen, Mexico. If you've been to Grand Slam with us or on your own, you have gotten to know and like Mike.
Recently Mike has been diagnosed with an extremely rare form of cancer called chrondrasarcoma, a cancer of the cartilage the connects muscles and joints. It's very rare and his insurance does not cover the treatments.
Mike has helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to support the Punta Allen community and now he needs our help. Please consider making a donation to the gofundme site for Mike that has been set-up by his friend Jennifer Norris of Livingston, MT. If we all contribute a little, we can help Mike a lot!
Thank you Jennifer for doing this and our best wishes to Mike.
Thanks for reading. We will see you next week.
