Since launching Andras Outfitters, linking a fishing report/blog to the website seemed like a no-brainer. For some reason though, I thought about kicking it off to chronicle an event like fishing with my wife and newborn son on Mother’s Day, the first summer steelhead of the season, or the comedy of a blown trailer bearing somewhere off the beaten path in Siskiyou County, California. The more time that went into the idea though, the longer I questioned the need of anything more than simply a list of words that, in no particular order or completeness, capture what makes any day on the water precious. After all, who needs anything more out of a day than camaraderie, presentation, anticipation, currents, hatches, headshakes, redbands, adrenaline, heartbreak, personalities, grabs, backing, tailwalking, metalheads, or celebrations to make it special? Not this guide.
