Rondy:  Shad Two Hand Rods

Dates:  May 21, 2018  

Leader:  Jeff Hutchinson  415-506-6746

Number of anglers:  6

Description:  A day of Shad fishing on the Sacramento River with two hand rods only.  We will meet in Hamilton City at the Irving Finch boat launch.  Our guides will take us by Jet boats to a sandbar where we will wade out to fish.  Anglers will be expected to rotate positions when wading so that everyone can catch fish.  Boats will leave the ramp at noon and return us to the ramp at dusk/dark.  This is a day trip and most people are likely to drive home afterward (roughly a 2 hour drive time back to the Bay Area).  Our guides will provide flies, drinks, sun awnings, and an early dinner.  Their website is   

Suggested Gear:  Any spey rod with sink tips in various sink rates (intermediate, type 3, 6 & 8).  Six foot leaders of 10# or stronger Maxima.  The guides will have some shad flies (called "shad darts") if you need them. 

Cost:  The fee for this Rondy is $200.00.  

Other expenses will be lunch, parking fee (bring small bills), and guide gratuities.  

Cancellation Policy:  There are no refunds.  In the event that a member is, for any reason, unable to attend, he may resell his slot (rod) to another GGACC member (by first pulling from the waitlist if one exists).  It is the sole responsibility of the member to manage this transaction.  This is not the responsibility of the leader or club.
