Caleb Runyan

Member since May 2016 Portland, United States
Background
I started fishing When I was a young kid. The first thing I learned to do was fly fish then as I grew older I learned more and more techniques. Now I use my knowledge to teach others how to have a great time on the water. I love to help people catch there first Salmon or steelhead. Nothing is more rewarding than that. The opportunity of catching the fish of a lifetime every time a new fish is on the line has me coming back for more and always will.
Techniques
I love to fish for salmon and steelhead with whatever they will bite. Fishing gear bait or fly fishing are the main ways I fish. It just depends on when where and what is working best.
