Albacore Tuna on the Fly

September 13, 2018

​Join Pioneer Anglers September 13, 2018 for an exhilarating experience fishing for Albacore Tuna with a fly rod. We will be fishing with All Rivers & Saltwater Charters out of Westport, Washington. Just try to imagine the strike of a fish moving at 30+ miles an hour and the terror as you watch your backing peel away like you just hooked onto a small car on the interstate. The screaming reel eventually stops and you engage in hand to fin combat, you get your fly line back to the reel, breath a sigh of relief, and them bam, he takes off again! After the second or third run, your opponent heads to the bottom and it becomes a cage match, your arms are burning, your rod feels like it will explode at any second  and doubts about who is really in control set in. If you have done your part and earned it, you will be rewarded. 

As of May 26- 0 spots available.

Trout Spey 

July 13, 14 & 15, 2018

Join Marty Howard and Pioneer Anglers for an exciting weekend of learning to swing flies for trout and casting two handed fly rods. Marty is an excellent instructor, from tying traditional flies, building bamboo rods to casting instruction, he brings many years of knowledge to the table. 

Our class is limited to 10 participants, so there will be plenty of time for one on one instruction. The class and instructional format is based on the premise that fly casting and fishing is fun. Our classes are lite hearted, full of laughs and FUN!  

This exciting technique will broaden your fishing horizon and get you thinking about all the water you have missed out on. The focus of the class will be on two handed rods; However, you will soon discover the casts, techniques and flies will transition to a single handed rod just the same.
