40 Days, and 40 Nights!

Taking a much needed break from storm detail.  Just, oh, worn out.  Still moist and more rainy stuff is here now.  Super tired, but don`t want to nap.  Vinny is crapped out on the couch, the stove is going, supper is cooked, and will be tying leaders shortly.  Just wanted to sit some, so decided to go through some older pictures of Steelhead past.  Get in touch with us if you want to go fishing this winter and spring.

Now, waiting for Sara to get home, from a very trying week, and relax for an evening or two.DSC00611

R Rated Update!

Warning! Explicit language, may or may not occur in this post…

We are just now coming off of a series of major flooding storms.  Roads are washed out, and water is everywhere.  Our driveway is shot.  So, we get to fix that damn thing.  We had water flowing through our shop.  It is now somewhat cleaned up, and attempting to dry.  Today, we had violent thunder and lightening.  We had one strike hit us, and pinned me against the kitchen counter, and blew Vinny the cat from the window across the kitchen.

Our road here at the house is, and will remain closed.  If we travel, there is a long way around.  Sara is staying in the valley, as she is always dedicated to her job.  She will attempt to come home for the weekends.  I just hope they feed her well, and take care of her under the circumstances.  We all know how hard it is to be at work, and not be able to come home.

So, here we are.  Dealing with events that are out of our control.  The shitty part, is that the vast majority still does`nt give a crap.  Good to know that people still do not exist in the country.  If you are in the city, you`re good.  We can`t get to the Post office, or the bank, so your damn bills can wait!  We are prepared for these things, so we have plenty of food.  Others panic because they are out of cereal and go into a panic.  We cook outside on the grill or on a fire, we have generation if needed, and are perfectly fine other than tension.  The boats are ready to launch if we have to.  And, the really neat thing, is that when we lose our power here, we lose our phone too.  And those of you that know us, know, we have NO cell service here.  No cell phone?  Crap, the majority would lose their God Damned minds without their phone glued to their head.

There is a small vent, and a little update.  Some events here and there, and some stress getting in and out of here, and being safe doing so.  We are alive and well…

So You Wanna Be A Fishing Guide?

This is what your boat looks like at the end of November, and after a long season.  Can`t clean anything, because everything is frozen and temps in the 20`s.

Our Fall season is officially done now.  Waiting on some warmer weather, so we can clean up all of the disasters, and rebuild gear.  A couple of weeks, and we`ll start Steelhead season.  If anyone wants to fish this winter, give us a call, or shoot us an email at jessezalonis@gmail.com.  We have limited space for the Fall of 2016, so if you want to fish, might be a good time to think about it.  We are getting back to what it once was, and a year in advance.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Frosty the friggin snow man!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.  Tradition for us, is we go fishing.  Our family is small, and others we don`t communicate with.  Over the years, the holiday plans for us have been heavily modified.  For the most part, we just hang out, eat some, and do as we please.  Occasional visits from some friends.  Nice and calm, with little drama.  A nice day on the river, decorations done by the boss of the place, the cat running wild, and being helpful, a cocktail of two, and warm fires, both inside and out.

Have a safe and enjoyable holiday.  We will be floating the river, and hanging out in the evening.  And, the last day of Fall Chinook season for us.  Thank you to all who came and fished with us through the season.  Hope to see you for Steelhead, and next fall too.mustadfall#7
