This summer i was invited on a float with Wilderness Adventures on the Middle Fork of the American River. They offer white water rafting trips on some of the best rivers around Northern California. This trip they wanted to explore some of the fishing opportunities in the MF canyon so they invited some fishing professionals including Ralph and Lisa Cutter, Cal Kellog the editor of the Fish Sniffer Magazine as well as myself and 8 other spin fisherman.Ralph and Lisa staying calm in the tunnel shoot rapid as guide Grady pulls the oars.

On day two i got a really nice brown. We were the last boat so 9 spin fisherman had just hit this water right before i floated through and got this girl on a size 2 jig head streamer i tied up.
Ralph enjoying a killer spread of great food. We were totally spoiled for two days.
