The West Branch Angler Resort

Hancock, NY

West Branch Angler Resort’s upscale log cabin accommodations are nestled in a sprawling 300-acre park like setting along a 2-mile private section of the West Branch of the Delaware River. Known as the Gateway to the Catskills, the surrounding mountain scenery and grounds are marvelous. Bigger and better than ever the West Branch Angler was completely renovated in 2007 with 12 new cabins and new amenities such as wireless internet access and a new pavilion. Whether you’re fly fishing on the East’s most productive wild trout fishery, shooting a round of sporting clays or taking a riverside hike on one of our groomed trails, it’s no wonder that the West Branch Angler is known as The Premier Outdoor Destination in the East, located only a few hours from the major metros of the Northeast.

Float Trip for 2 on the Salmon River

Courtesy of Paul’s Guide Service

Come experience the famous Salmon River fishery west-coast style drift boat. We will quietly cover a broad area of the river to put the fly or lure into the strike zone.

Floating the beautiful Salmon River by Driftboat is a wonderful thing. You will learn many holding spots that all the fish frequent, by covering miles of the river. By using the boat as a taxi in many cases we can get away from the crowds. Along with this you can bring extra rods, cooler and clothes.

My Driftboat, is a 2010 17 foot, Willie. Its is comfortable to fish in or out of the boat. In the colder month’s it’s equipped with a propane heater to take the chill off. Floating in a Driftboat is a great way to see the river and wildlife around the river.

 

 

Dispatch From BC

May 9, 2012   //   by Geoff Schaake   //   Cack Handed, Mojo, Raffle Prizes, Spey Nation Supporters  //  Comments Off on Dispatch From BC

Just another day, lost a huge steelhead as it cartwield off a water fall.  Had wolves all around me.  And a giant eagle flew down and grabbed a dolly off my line from 3 feet away.  I like traveling in an A Star helicoptor.  Oh btw, Wally is giving us another trip.

Mystic Rods is added to the ever growing Nation

Mar 27, 2012   //   by Geoff Schaake   //   Cack Handed, Like Minded Mofos, Raffle Prizes  //  Comments Off on Mystic Rods is added to the ever growing Nation

We met Dennis from Mystic Rods several years ago at the Somerset Fly Fishing Show.  Us, a small but growing band of addicts of the swing thinking that maybe there were more of us out there, getting the usual, well “How many people do you expect” and “This is your first one huh” responses from the industry.  On the way down we thought that since we had a few companies show interest in the first Nation gathering, then the others would follow suit.  Dennis and Co had the same idea in mind, that if he came to the Fly Fishing Show, put a quality product in people’s hands, then things would happen.  Over beers, after the show we talked about spey and switch, Mystic wasn’t making them at the time but had plans to, and we have kept in loose touch over the years.  Well, things have happened, for both endevours.  We are currently in our fifth year of planning gatherings and Dennis is putting quality rods in people’s hands.

Fast forward to yesterday.  Mystic Fly Rods now has a full quiver of Switch Rods and they are ready to put those rods in your hands.  Mystic Fly Rods is now part of The Nation!

They are also putting their 11 foot 8wt stick in our raffles for you to take a stab at.  It is currently the Fly Fish America 2012 Gear Guide Editors Choice and a success story in it’s own right

Welcome!

Not To Be Denied, G Loomis Steps up to the Plate

Mar 11, 2012   //   by Geoff Schaake   //   Cack Handed, Mojo, Raffle Prizes  //  Comments Off on Not To Be Denied, G Loomis Steps up to the Plate

I just got off the phone with the Eastern Reps of G Loomis.  They have confirmed that G Loomis will be present and accounted for at Spey Nation V on July 14, 2012.  They also hinted at new product and that there may be something with that famous fish logo on the raffle table.  Can’t wait to see what they have in store for us!
