We use great gear from great companies on our adventures.  


Abel Reels

Abel is celebrating over 25 years of making the highest quality and best looking reels in the sport.  I've paired my favorite Abel's with my favorite rods - stunning combinations this year.

Baker Trailers

The Baker family has been building high quality custom fishing boat trailers for over 20 years.  Their trailers are so highly regarded that at least 75% of the boat owners I know use their products.  Call them at 541-998-4589.

Burkheimer Rods

Kerry makes some of the best rods in the business and it's what I use personally for Steelhead and Trout.  The 7 wt Switch Rod is my favorite.  

Caddis Fly Shop

This is THE fly shop in Oregon for the latest in fly fishing equipment.  Caddis Fly Blog and Steelhead on the 4th of July 

David Ellis Canvas

Dave makes authentic outdoor canvas products - Cowboy Bedrolls, Range Tents, and Rain Fly's… I use them all.   Rogue River W & S - 2012

Dr. Squatch

Manly handmade soaps, organic colognes, and hand curated cigar gift boxes.  The Squatch has you covered and smellin like the great outdoors.  Scents are indigenous to the USA and and so is the soap.


Premium sports sunglasses that pop-out from a very small size.  This is a perfect example of great innovation.  For the outdoorsman and sports enthusiast - they are essential.


Kokatat is the number one river safety brand out there in the white water.  Most of the crew I run with use their Personal Flotation Devices (PFD's) - whether we are on Class 1 Rapids or Class IV.  I used their Guide Jacket (PFD) on the Colorado River and it literally saved my life… twice. 

Mountain Khakis

Inside us all exists an adventurous soul - a wild heart that is called from nature to live authentic lives. For many outdoor enthusiasts pure freedom and rugged adventure has become a way of life. Mountain Khakis were developed for this lifestyle.

Pendleton Blankets

A great Oregon company that makes fantastic wool blankets, wool shirts, and lots of awesome National Park Gear.  Check out their National Park series of blankets - awesome!!  Pendleton National Park Gear 


Anything Patagonia makes, I love!!  They're a HUGE part of every adventure we take… from the Grand Canyon to the Rogue Wild & Scenic.

Sawyer Oars

Absolutely the BEST oars on the river.  Made in Oregon. For drift boats, rafts, kayaks, canoes & anything in-between…. (great for tent poles too).  Sawyers in the Canyon

Salmon Steelhead Journal

For great articles and information about NW Salmon and Steelhead… Check it out. Ten Treacherous Rivers

Strongback Chairs

On our river adventures, we use Strongback Chairs.  Great lumbar support - comfortable and easy to get up and out of…. they are always innovating the next greatest chair.


Therm-a-Rest is at the forefront of comfort innovation and quality, with a commitment to building what they make, with their own hands, whenever possible.  Love everything they make.

West Coast Action Photo's

Lilly and the crew hang out on the rock below Marten's on the McKenzie all day long and shoot incredible pics of our guest coming through.  Order your pics at their website.

Phantom Fire Pans & Oar Tethers

These guys make some GREAT river products.  I've used their pans and tethers from the Upper McKenzie to the Wild & Scenic Rogue and all the way down to the Grand Canyon.
