November is the perfect time for catch and release of Atlantic Salmon up to 30 lbs. on the Shetucket. We are now videoing with underwater

cameras as well as topwater the casting, hooking and bringing-to-hand of your catch. Watch your

rafting trip with unique underwater action as the fish of a 1,000 casts is brought to net long after the experience! A free copy of every video for every client(all rights reserved) along with Gourmet Fare and Desserts...

Catch your Holiday Salmon and use our recipe(s) for perfect preparation and presentation. Purchase our Wood Presentation Boxed Schetucket Special(s) for Noodle and Fly Rod for the unique Holiday Gift for that Special someone after your Raft Trip.

This weeks trips saw three Atlantic Salmon from

11-19.6 lbs, three from 7-9 lbs. Dark bushy Streamers, Flourescent Chartruese Cleos and Pink Spinners were the ticket. Slow and deep presentations were rewarded with fast action

if we were paying attention to the bite. Seven fish were either lost or couldn't be turned.

Water levels were up and River Rafting was the only way to stalk the big ones. Our 16 foot Cataraft with swivel seats allowed fishing from every angle On-the-Drift. A bald Eagle and three Ospreys were observed fishing with us. We now carry pepper spray in case we run into a Black Bear- tracks were seen this Fall. My research and experience with Black and Brown Bear in Alberta, Canada and Kenai, Alaska, respectively,

makes every client safe and sound on all trips-no worries!.
