Just wanted to send a note to you and the team to let you know that Mary and I had a terrific time at the Bogy House. We enjoyed our time on the water with Aaron and Nate, as they are very hard working personable young men. A big shout out to Andy for the various times he helped us and just because he was always so accommodating and upbeat. Very nice to be around. Annie, well, you know you have a gem on your hands. She was fantastic, I really appreciated the efforts she went through to pick me up and bring me back to the lodge and make me comfortable.
It was also a pleasure to meet the other fine guest you had staying and coming in during our stay. We look forward to fishing with you and the team again, hopefully as soon as this fall and again in the winter. Thought I would attach a couple of our photo's.
Thanks for putting me on my first steelhead.
Brian and Mary Kuchynka
"The Best Steelhead Guide/Lodge on the Olympic Peninsula, period! Jeff Brazda is one of the finest guides I have had the pleasure to fish with, he even had the patience to teach my ADD personality to spey cast. With one of Jeff's guides Joe Willauer I was able to catch my first steelhead "on the swing" using my new spey casting skills ! This is a trip not to be missed! Enjoy, and tight lines to all -- Popamack!"
I wanted to take a minute to thank you for all your past support of the CCA and my annual fundraiser. Jeff with your donations of fishing trips over the last 7 years I wanted to let you know we have been able to raise about $4500 dollars. I think you should know that your money raised has been used to fight political terrorism by certain factions of our legislature and State Senate to do away with the fish and wildlife commission twice. Jeff these tactics were brought up because the CCA had gotten them to manage our fisheries thru economic value and conservation of our wild stocks that need protection, while promoting hatchery stocks to fish for. Jeff the CCA has been instrumental in fighting commercial fishing along with the Wild fish conservancy’s radical views of not having hatchery stocks to supplement our wild stocks, not that some of their ideas were all bad, such as the fact the fish and wildlife department were using inferior Steelhead stocks. That I agree with and applaud them for bringing that to the forefront. Jeff whether or not you agree with all of the politics of fisheries management and the CCA I can say without a doubt we would be in worse shape today without the CCA and our lobbyist fighting for Recreational fishing and our fish. Jeff I just wanted to drop you this note to tell you I appreciate all the past support even though you have decided to drop your donation to the Kitsap CCA.
So thanks Jeff a million times over from me,
Kitsap CCA banquet chair
