2008 is now gone and I am ready for 2009!
I know this is a little late but with all the support with orders, this had to take a back burner to making you all the tackle that you guys have been ordering.
It shows that many of you are proud to spend your money on hardware that is made right here in the Northwest instead of the Midwest and that makes a big difference to this family owned and operated business. Over the last year I was able to have a couple of adventures and for those who like fish pictures, here are a few from 2008.
10 minute two rod limit on tasty Columbia Springers
Some of Team Snack Shack putting some Chrome in the Freezer with Team Hook Up!
Hot Summer Chrome from the Columbia
I had a great time on the water with TTJLN, Metal Slinger , Tail Out Swingin,
K16 and many more of you guys.
Look for part 2

I love the North Umpqua! I think I left my heart there on my last trip!
Good Friend Dean Finnerty of Five Rivers Guide Service is the Man on the North!
True Native summer Steelhead that smash small spinners!
Lee Freeman of SSS Guide service put me onto so many Columbia Fish this year. He is a great product tester and is a pleasure to Fish with. A definite member of Team R&B!
I got the ok from the “big boss” of team Snack Shack to make a lot more trips in 2009 and I got a new digital camera to make next years post even better!

Great post Rob! I have to get a disk from you with all the pics and videos from that trip with the girls! We will have to get them back out there this summer for sure.

So I guess I'll throw in a few shots from a couple days this past year... These are from Fall Coho'n on E.C. and Winter Sewer Troot smashin on the lower Clack, before the new year...These are all Osmosis/Arctic tag-teams. The Coho were smashed on drifted eggs, The "fish-only" shots was a sidedrift on the Willy, and the "other" Steel shots are drifted coon dogs.

Sidedrifting Coons... And sea lice, and bait to boot!

Bank smashing brats with Coo-nanners...This was probably a traveling pair...Seriously. We both have had the idea. We have done it before with Coho, but, me personally...I have never banked a Steel hen, and a buck one after the other, within 10 minutes...I dunno. Little minis though huh? Fun fightin 'em on light bass gear though!

Killer photos, Rob thats a nice collection for the year! I could thrown some up but IM sure they have all been seen already : )
There was a coho I let go in EC last fall that I could say would have been the best photo fish of the year but my camera was not out that day due to rain....
