King Salmon on Kodiak Island

I’ve started adding some of my articles from my travels across the US. I’ve been lucky enough to fish in some fantastic places and meet some great people. Its an interesting exercise going back to these pieces and digging out some old pics.

This piece followed my 2002 trip to Kodiak Island in search of the Kings of the Pacific Salmon. One article was published in Flylife Magazine but like any hack I wanted more space, to tell more of the story. This was it.

Hope you enjoy the Kings of Kodiak too.

Received this batch of great photos from Elizabeth Rodgers from a morning trip onto the White earlier this summer. Elizabeth and her sister Emily joined me for a taste of high water fly fishing. Emily had caught her first fish the day before with Marc Poulos on Norfork. (more…)

Hello world!

Gday, I’m Steve Dally and welcome to my personal blog for my fly fishing guide service on the White River, and Norfork Tailwater.

As you can see SplashesWithFishes is still under construction, I’m pulling together content to try and knock this into shape and give you a reason to come back. You might also be interested in my first WordPress Blog, the Mountain River Journal, which has become one of the WordPress’ Top 50 fastest growing English language blogs.

So what can you expect. First and foremost, honest and regular fishing reports from the White River, Norfork Tailwater, plus Ozark waters we fish on, and from other places too. We are building our pages on what our rivers are like to fish and the general techniques. We are planning articles on tips and tricks, some rod and reel stuff as you would expect from a gear head, plus a fair dose of humor.

We will also be drawning in archived articles  from my various other writing outlets, Flylife Magazine, the Mountain River Journal Blog and some older writings from my travels across the US. Other than that we fully expect like the Journal and the Dam Store Report this corner of the fly fishing world to evolve and take on a life of its own.

We hope firstly you are informed, second that you are entertained, and thirdly hope it piques your interest to take book a trip on the White or Norfork River.

Welcome to the journey.

Steve
