Here are a few of the reasons you don’t want to miss this trip!

• The World’s Best Bonefishing
South Andros is hands down my favorite place to fish. I have never had a bad day.

• Learn To Fish The Salt
There is no better place to learn the skills needed for successful saltwater fly fishing. If you’re new to the salt you can take advantage of the abundance of eager bonefish to dramatically shorten the learning curve for skills like strip setting, fish spotting, making successful presentations and quick casting.

• Great Guides
The guides at Andros South are the best on the island. Most of them have been with the lodge for over ten years. They know the water and they know how to put anyone on bonefish.

• Extra Education
Want to learn to tie bonefish flies, work on your casting, take photos like a pro, make a great cocktail? All of the above? Kent and I will do our best to share what we know and help you meet your goals.

• A Great Lodge
Andros South provides a great experience for all. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. The food is great and the bar is well stocked and it’s all included in the price. That’s right, no paying for drinks and the bar is open 24/7. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. You step off the boat and hand your gear off to Vado, the driver, and it’s washed, transported and put back in your hand the next morning ready to fish. Rooms are single occupancy, there’s wifi and a Skype phone to call home. You will not want to leave.

• Great Value
Six days of fishing and seven nights of fun plus all you can eat and drink and the extra workshops for $4635. That’s hard to beat. I probably save close to a grand on the bar tab alone.

• Get In On The Gink
We see it as our job to live the dream and share it with our fans. Well, isn’t it about time you got in on the fun? Don’t just read about the adventure, live it and let us help. We want to see your smiling face on Gink and Gasoline!

• Good Times and New Friends
G&G followers are a great bunch of guys! Whether it’s sharing a day on a skiff or hanging out at the tiki hut with a drink in your hand and your toes in the sand, odds are you will be in fine company. Many of the guys I fish with regularly and now call my good friends, I met at Andros South. I can not measure the richness these good people have added to my life. I hope you will be one of them.

So How Do I Get In On The Fun?

I’m glad you asked. Just email us at hookups@ginkandgasoline.com and we will be happy to answer any question and get you all the info you need to get booked. I can’t wait to see you in the Bahamas!

 

Alaska West Lodge, July 26 – Aug 2, 2015

_DSC2554

Alaska West is a remote but comfortable camp deep in western Alaska. On the banks of the Kanektok River, it offers some of the best fly fishing on the planet for rainbow trout, dolly varden, grayling and all five species of Pacific salmon. Our week in July offers amazing trout fishing. Generally the flesh bite is just coming on strong which means the biggest fish in the river are out in force where we can target them. The mouse bite is typically strong as well, offering the most exciting trout fishing possible.

AK-Trip

In addition to epic trout fishing, this is one of the few times of the year you can do the salmon slam, catching all five species of salmon. The chum salmon should be in full swing and highly aggressive and the first silvers hitting the river hot and bothered. This week was epic last year and I expect a repeat performance.

And it’s a deal! Alaska West is offering a Father / Son special this week. Bring your son (of any age) for half price! I can’t think of a better way to spend some quality time with your family. Of course, you are welcome on your own or with a friend.

AK-Trip-2

The guides at Alaska West are some of the best in the business. Many of them long-term veterans, and all a pleasure to fish with. The camp is beautiful and comfortable, the food is awesome and the company outstanding. This is truly a trip you will never forget.

Alaska West Trip: 7 night / 6 days for $5995 per person.

Deschutes river Steelhead Camp: Sept 14th-20th

DSC_2164-2

This is the real deal. Run class four rapids in a jet sled, sleep under the stars on the banks of Oregon’s beautiful Deschutes River and swing flies to aggressive steelhead. Fish hard from sun up to sun down with a relaxing mid-day siesta. Tell fishing stories and go home feeling really alive. It doesn’t get any better.

Deschutes_Panorama1

The Deschutes is known for its eager summer run steelhead. It’s one of the best places anywhere for catching steelhead on floating lines and even dry flies. The canyon is beautiful and there’s lots of wildlife, including big horn sheep. It’s the kind of steelheading that spoils you.

My good friend Jeff Hickman runs this trip and he does it right. It’s deluxe tent camping with chef-prepared meals, roomy tents, comfy cots and even a shower. As rustic as you need, as comfortable as you like.

Desc-Trip

Not a Spey caster? This trip is definitely for you. Jeff is one of the best Spey instructors there is. He taught me, in fact. I took a good friend who did not Spey cast on this trip last year and in two hours Jeff had him holding his first wild steelhead, on a swung fly. You should have heard him whooping! This is truly one of the best fishing trips I’ve ever been on. I highly recommend it.

It’s reasonably priced, too.
