Guaranteed to catch a steelhead on the fly?


Now it's possible.  Just got this note from good friend and incredible Olympic Peninsula Steelhead Guide, Jim Kerr. 

My good friend and fellow fishing guide Sam Kennedy has been very sick with cancer for some time, and despite good health insurance it has predictably put his family on the ropes financially.  There is a benefit dinner for him here in Forks on the 7th and lots of guides including myself have offered to donate trips for auction. I have decided instead of donating a trip I will be donating a fly caught steelhead, no matter how many trips it takes, whether or not you have ever cast a fly rod before, post your bid on the blog and if you are the highest bidder I will take you fishing until you hook and land a fresh run adult steelhead.

The details are simple, book the day you want, if you don’t land a steelhead, we will book another day and so on.  If there are two of you well then, we will have to get you each one.

You can bid on the trip on my blog, Raincoastguides.com or by phone and I will post your bid, or you can bid in person on the night of the 7th in forks

Having fished with Jim before, accomplishing this first time out is very doable.

This is an awesome offer, and if I lived on that coast, I'd bid in a heart beat.

I agree, if I lived closer I would bid on this in a second!

You are a good man!!! I hope the bids come in high.
