The release of Skagit Master II is letting the world in on a secret that Leland has known for years: when it comes to steelheading experience, knowledge, and technique, Scott Howell is a resource without peer. We think he might just be the fishiest man alive.
For almost four decades, Scott has been fishing
the steelhead waters of the Pacific Rim, and for over 20 years, he’s
been guiding them professionally. He was one of the handful of Pacific
Northwest anglers to pick up two-handed rods in the late 1980s, and was
an integral part of the period of casting and line-design innovation known as the "Skagit Revolution."
He was also part of the first batch of American guides to fish the
unexplored steelhead rivers of Russia's Kamchatka peninsula. His wealth of experience and scope of expertise are difficult to fathom.
