Fly Fishing Caravan

Anyone heard of any fly fishing caravans? We love our 32' Itasca Sunrise, and fly fishing, not necessarily in that order. I've looked for any caravans that specialized in fly fishing, and none found so far. I'm thinking it would be a great way to travel to new fishing destinations. Any one want to start a new business?

J&SW...What region are you interested in doing this "caravan" ? I know my Uncle from NM had belonged to a fly-fishing club and it seemed that they did some trips like this. I can ask him if it is something they do all the time or if he knows of a group who puts these types of trips together in certain regions, if you like...but then again ...I don't know when his last trip out like that was either

Jim and Sandy,

Let us know if you find out anything. I'll be attending a fly fishing expo in Detroit next weekend and will look for anything that might work.

I haven't found a better way to spend time than knee deep in a river or stream casting a fly.

We'd most likely be in the West. We live in Santa Cruz, but will travel to wherever trout/steelhead/stripers reside.

I belong to our local fly fishing club, which is pretty big for our small community (about 250 members). We have scheduled Fish Outs all the time, and some of the members go to these in RVs. But, I've never seen an organized caravan, heading to multiple destinations over an extended time, like regular caravans do, but focusing on fishing. I think it would be a great way to go to new spots. The caravan organizers would pre-arrange for the RV parks to stay at, fly shops to use, equipment set-ups documented, local guides arranged ahead of time, etc.

You might try making a post asking members where their favorite place to fly fish is. After getting results, discuss with members of your current club and start your own caravan.

Float the Bitterroot in Montana

My best ever outdoor vacation was a 5 day, 4 night camping float down the Bitterroot, out of Missoula Montana, about 12 years back.

Beauty and awesome fishing. We hired 2 guides and a camp cook. Experts in biology (one Masters, one PhD, and they were full time guides!!)

(My first catch was a 25" brown trout. No BS.)

I'd contact some of the guides or outfitters out of that area to see what they might know of.

Jack,

That's the point, I don't want to do all the leg work. I want to go to new places, all set up ahead of time by an expert. I'm thinking it could be a good business, for someone young enough to want to do that kind of thing. I'm retired, for a good reason.

jackrobinryan,

We were in MT and WY last fall, and LOVED it. Mostly in the Bozeman, Three Forks, and Yellowstone area, Gallatin, Madison, Yellowstone, Hedgen Lake. Really, really good fishing, and great guides out of Troutfitters in Bozeman.

Back to the point - I'd really love a guided caravan trip to new areas, couple of days in each spot, guides arranged, RV park arranged, equipment set-ups sheets, etc.

Ok. You might review this web site: Sisters Adventures Events Detail

They look like they have alot of fun. However, you might have to pick a telephone up to call.
