2012 Salmon River New York Photos & Podcast | $18 Beer and a Carrot

Here are the images from 3 cameras: the iphone, Nikon DSLR that took a swim in the river, and my Olympus point and shoot. We threw every pattern at them we could think of, we swung flies, we bounced flies off the bottom, we dead drifted. The steelhead had little to no interest. The browns wouldn't play either.

We did not land a single steelhead in our group from Thursday morning to Sunday night. 

Here is the photo journal from the trip. As always, due to Picasa uploading to Blogger, the images are not in order. 

The Fisn n Clips from Grasshoppper Products is AWESOME. They kept my Helios Rod together and safely together while I walked to and from the stream through the woods. 

Fog on the drive up

 Here is the storm forecast. We knew it was time to start preparing to leave on Sunday.
