Thanks for Another Great Year!

On behalf of the entire staff at HA I would like to thank all of our customers for another great year on the river. We far exceeded last years numbers in every aspect of the business. The fly shop sales, cabin rentals and guide service numbers continue to increase each and every year and we know that it is due to our GREAT customer base that we have on the Hi. As all of you know, a fly shop is a tough business to be in and we lose alot of great shops each year across the country that just can't seem to make a go of it. We would not be able to stay in business without your support each and every year! So again, thank you for another great year and we hope that each new year continues to get better and better for everyone. Cheers!

New Waters

Had a chance to get out and explore some on my own yesterday. I don't get to do this often, so it was a real treat. I love to check out new waters, especially when they turn out to be a plausible destination for a weekend camp / fishing trip. Don't know if they will turn out to be good enough to guide trips on yet, but stay tuned.
Also got a chance to check out a wild stream that I used to fish. This is the best wild stream that I ever sat foot in, period! Tons of wild bows and even some BIG browns call this little stream home. It is such tight quarters that you had to stay in the stream, could not get out of the water due to the thick vegetation on either side. I haven't fished this little jewel in over 20 years, due to various reasons, and can't wait to see if she will still produce. If so, I will be a happy camper.....literally!
