We return to the Hood Canal in late summer to pedal miles of primo terrain to reveal hidden fishing spots and explore world-class waters. Under the tutelage of your guides, you’ll get to know to the essential gear for the bike-fishing fanatic and nerd out on the ins-and-outs of hauling your travel fishing kit
Meet your guides and the group at Swift Industries & Swift Adventure Co. in Seattle, WA. From there we’ll pile in the SACo. adventure wagon and point southwest toward the finest roads and rivers the Hood Canal has to offer. Once we’re on the river, you’ll be guided through the fundamentals of fly fishing from the art of reading water down to getting a knack for casting.
Each evening will find us at a new camp where we’ll relax together with delicious open-air meals and good times around a roaring fire to wrap up the day.
