After retiring from 40 years of teaching high school and university science, I've spent the past decade teaching FF skills, and guiding clients throughout Northern CA, Utah, SW Montana, Idaho, and Oregon. Of approximately 155 beginners I've had during that time, 4 have developed the skills and interest that permitted them to actually attend FF guide school to become a licensed guide. An unsolicited comment from one client: "I learned more in 4 hours with you than in 5 days with other guides. I believe in helping my clients not just catch fish, but learn the appropriate types of rigging, how to read the water, and the "3 P's" (preparation, position, and presentation) that will enable them to be successful no matter where they go or who they're with.
We've mastered the methods which should be used for catching very huge steelhead, salmon, shad, and trout on very light tackle. Either fishing out of the jet-powered and custom-built FishRite or the quiet and smooth drift boats, we'll give you satisfying fishing and a truly enjoyable time. As veteran and award-winning outdoor writer, Peter Ottesen wrote about Captain Dave Mierkey: "The tackle looked more suitable for catching a steelhead than a really huge salmon that is packed with enthusiasm. As soon as you catch a salmon, that is the time that the test of skill commences."
I go the extra mile for my customers to make sure they have a safe and rewarding experience on the water. At the end of the day your catch will be cleaned and bagged for you to take home. I enjoy the pressure of having to perform for my clients each and every day and showing them a good time on the water.
