Agua Boa Amazon Lodge

Our week at Agua Boa Amazon Lodge in Brazil was a great hit. Water was higher than usual and we had to work a little harder but everyone caught double digit peacocks and had a great time as shown here by Tom Harris and Will Andersen.



It's an amazing experience to be in the rainforest and to fish the river, a distant tributary to the Amazon. There are all kinds of fish species, birds, animals and exciting new things to see around each corner. This is truly a destination that always has something new to offer along with hard fighting, hungry, beautiful fish. We can't wait to go back.

Delphi Club, Bahamas

Searching the flats for bonefish
Bonefish on the flats, Bahamas


If you think this looks good now, and it does, think how good it's going to look in January when we're hoping for a day when it gets out of the 20's in the northeast!

 

You're right, there's no way of knowing what our weather will be like in January, and we're taking a chance going to the Bahamas at this time of year, but we can be pretty certain that whatever it is in the Bahamas, it will be better than what it is at home!

Here is a way to beat the winter doldrums, catch some bonefish, soak up some

Fly Fishing Hall of Fame

 

Rick Bannerot presents our certificates.



We were very honored to be inducted into the Catskill Fly Fishing Center & Museum's Fly Fishing Hall of Fame on October 8, CCFFCM,  in Roscoe, NY, Trout Town USA. The 2011 inductees included Doug Swisher, Carl Richards (1933-2006), John Alden Knight (1890-1966), and Roderick Haig-Brown (1908-1976). It was a beautiful fall day in the Catskills. I'm sure more than one of us was thinking that it was the perfect fall day for fishing the Beaverkill.

Newsworthy Items

Just a couple quick things before heading out to Alaska:

On October 8, we are being inducted into the Fly Fishing Hall of Fame at the Catskill Fly Fishing Museum, CCFC&M in Roscoe, NY. We're astounded at this prestigious honor and look forward to being in Trout Town, USA, for the events and ceremony. Hope to see you there.

I've posted several photos on Facebook of the flood that hit Benton and Fishing Creek last week. It's very very sad. Lots of people, including most of Benton, are still without water and were without power for days. Downstream of us, cabins were washed away at Forks and Bloomsburg was hit especially hard. If you're not a Facebook fan, check out the many photos posted in the Benton News, our wonderful little daily electronic newsletter.

We'll soon be advertising our line-up of trips for next year. Along with all the usual stops, we'll be heading to Bolivia for Dorado in September. We'd love to have you with us. Contact us for details.

New Sage One Rod

The One is the new kid on the block from Sage Rod Company for 2012. This is an interesting 3 minute video taking us inside the Sage factory to hear Kurt Van Wyck, Director of Research & Development, Steve Greist, Material Engineer and Jerry Siem, Chief Rod Designer, tell us all about the new technology and the new One. We recently had the opportunity to take a seven weight to Alaska, fished it everyday for a week, and are simply amazed at how spot-on accurate and true tracking this new rod is. The One is 25 percent lighter than it's predecessor, the Z-Axis, and has a much more sensitive feel. You can actually feel the line working on the rod, and that is one of the main aspects of the new technology at Sage. What we like most is that the new One is lighter, more responsive, more accurate, more sensitive than any fly rod up to this point. A pleasure to cast and fish. Check out the video and then stop at your local Sage Dealer and try the new One.

Rods Available - September, Alaska

 

We seldom have rods available this late in the summer for our September Alaska trip. As the photos show, the rainbows are fattened up from a summer of feasting and are in great shape getting ready for winter. The tundra landscape is beautiful, fresh cool mornings, often with fresh snow on the mountains.

Rainbows & Sockeyes



 

Fall is a gorgeous season anywhere, but especially so in Alaska. Grab one of these spots and come along for a week of exceptional fishing and scenery. Details. Contact us or Stew Armstrong at Frontiers today!
