On October 7, 2017 four lucky Clackamas Fly Fishers members enjoyed a three day Steelhead camp donated by The Fly Fishing Shop. Meeting Mark Bachman and Patty Barnes at Max Canyon at about 1 PM Bob Blount( and his brother), Andrew Beldin, Mike Schneider, and Richard Harms headed down river to the camp. They then spent the next 2 days being moved from one good body of water to another in pursuit of Steelhead. Mark and Patty run a first class camp with great food, lodging and a fun atmosphere.
All the members had nothing but accolades about the camp and the hospitality shown to them by Mark and Patty. Mark worked hard to find fish for them and although they also worked hard fishing they were not successful in hooking up with a Steelhead. Bob’s brother did hook up on the last day of the trip.
What can we say to Mark and Patty at The Fly Fishing Shop for donating such a fabulous trip to the club. They have the unique distinction of being our only Founding Gold Sponsor and this donation just underlines their support of our club. Please, be sure and stop by the shop to acknowledge them for their wonderful support. Better yet purchase something or book a trip with them. They have a lot of options available for us and we should not hesitate to take advantage of them. THANK YOU AGAIN FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK ON THIS GREAT TRIP!!!!!!!
