Photo of the Day August 3rd

Jay Nicholas leaping Chinook salmon.

This is a screen shot taken from a go pro movie shot this season. You will need to look closely, but there is a chinook leaping off to the right side of the photo. Unfortunately this salmon was not attached to my fly line. Still, this is a nice memory of a day when fish were not shy to roll, but were entirely opposed to grab my fly. And yes, I cast my fly to this fish immediately, to no avail. Best wishes to you all

Donated Guide Trips to Support Salmon Fisher’s Journal Publication

Jay Nicholas smiling while swinging a Burkheimer.
That’s right. Several of my guide friends have generously offered to donate their on-water time to support publication of Salmon Fisher’s Journal. This is a rare opportunity to reserve a guided fly fishing trip with several of Oregon’s premier steelhead guides AND support the publication of my most ambitious writing endeavor.

Here is the list:
Jeff Hickman (Fish the Swing)
— one person, winter or spring as mutual schedules allow, location TBD

Jeff Coffey (Fair Flies)
— one person, Oregon mid coast, preferably October, TWO DAYS with overnight at the Nicholas cabin in Pacific City

Josh Linn (guide and employee at Royal Treatment Fly Shop)
— one person, Sandy/Clackamas, winter or spring as mutual schedules allow

Michael Gorman (michaelgormanflyfishing.com)
— one person, Siletz or Nestucca winter steelhead as mutual schedules allow

How to reserve one of these guided fishing trips?

Contact me at jaynicholas@comcast.net and indicate your interest in one of these trips. I will let you know if any are still available as well as means of payment.

My Kickstarter Campaign will wrap up at the end of this weekend, but this is an open offer that will remain open for a slightly longer window.

Call ASAP to book one of these trips with extraordinary angling guides who are donating their supporting my dream.

Thank you.
