Thank you for the few days of fishing with you guys at Klickitat couple weeks ago. Please pass my regards to Andy and Aaron also! I enjoyed fishing with you guys and being patient with the newbie. The setting was brilliant and I liked the relaxed atmosphere in the house. I definitely need to remember to “sweep the bow” but I think at the end of the trip I almost got it. Catching the first King and Steelhead was on the to-do list for the trip and those goals were exceeded. Next time need to catch one on the swing.
I have been entertaining the idea to head out somewhere February, March, April timeframe. It all depends on the amount of tax return and what happens at work. If you have any ideas, please let me know.
Hope you guys have had good season at the Methow!
Regards, Petteri Strömberg MARTRAC TECHNOLOGY GROUP
Hope To Be Back Next Year!
Hi Jeff....Fred McCollum here. I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed fishing at the Bogy house lodge two weeks ago. The lodge was very comfortable, the food was great, your guides were extremely hard working and excellent. I didn't land as many fish as I hooked, but I guess that is not unusual! I even enjoyed fishing with Badaliance and that's good! I hope to be back next year!
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,

Jeff, I just wanted to thank you for a memorable steelhead trip. I really enjoyed myself. Can't thank you enough for all the help and instruction you gave me. I learned a lot. You have a great operation and I enjoyed meeting your other guests. Annie was great in the kitchen and your younger guides showed great enthusiasm and love of their sport. Would certainly do it again. Spey Pride!
Just wanted to let you know that I had a great time staying at the Boggy House and fishing with you and the guy's. You run a great operation and I look forward to when I get the chance to make another trip out. The waters presented a bit of a challenge but you, Andy, and Ryan still got me into fish and the fight of my life with that monster I had on for a bit with Ryan. I didn't get the chance to fish with Nate but he was a great help in selecting a head and tip for me to use with the Bamboo Cannon. All great guides! My only complaint is that Annie is too good a cook and I gained at least 5 pounds from eating so much - those scrambled eggs sure were good! Please pass on my thanks to everyone.
