So You Want To Be A Fishing Guide
06.25.10

Did you ever dream of being a fishing guide in Alaska? Well our good buddy Joe did, and now he’s living the dream at the Copper River Lodge.

In this installment of “So You Want To Be A Fishing Guide” Joe Hyde shows his young guide crew how to clean a composting toilet. Joe is a fearless leader, he makes sure to show his crew that he’s not afraid to do the dirty work and thus ensures he will have something more important to do when it comes time to repeat the progress in August.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has just reported that this summer is in for a severe grasshopper infestation.  Charles Brown of the USDA stated that based on recent federal surveys many western states, including Montana, may see the most severe hopper outbreaks in the last 30 years.

Hey Joe’s House of Porn
02.12.10

After intercepting BHK’s first NZ field report of the new year we decided to send our very own Hey Joe Hyde down south to see if indeed NZ trout fishing doesn’t suck ass or if BHK had finally figured out how to use Photoshop…

Hey Dave, Brad says you’re looking for NZ fishing porn.  Here’s today’s catch!  It’s been pretty amazing so far….Brad knows his shit, and the fish (for the most part) have been accommodating.
Anyway, here’s some more pics, and we’ll send you the one of Brad’s 12 pounder tomorrow!

How are things in MT?

A recently intercepted email from Sweaty Waders New Zealand field emissary BHK, who dispels the myth that trout fishing in NZ really sucks balls…

Before you look at the pictures I sent you guys, remember to keep your expectations low when you come and play in New Zealand!!

SO…. Repeat after me…. “one fish a day is good, and a 4 pound trout is a big fish”! Again…. “one fish a day is good, and a 4 pound trout is a big fish”!!…… O.K now you can look below:)

I had very memorable day today on a stream called Magoo creek. Pxx,Jxx and Jxxxx fished it with me three years ago. But this time I went much further up river. So far that I had a 3.5 hour return walk back to the car! I landed 23 fish up there today. I bet I spotted 60 trout or more.  Big guy’s were- 10 pound brown, a 7.25 brown, and a 7 pound rainbow. The rest were all nice bows around 2.5 to 5 pounds. I pulled two mice out of the ass of a smaller 4 pounder as well.
