From one small business to all our small business partners, thank you for your support of SLP and the Outdoor Community! Support your local outfitters and shops. These shops employ, educate, and make our outdoor pursuits more possible. Think about this…sure amazon can get you super cheap gear quickly, but will they know “what they're biting on today?”. Check out the link in our bio for a Sight Line Provisions retailer near you.

Happy Thanksgiving to yinz and yerz! 

Feeling very grateful this Thanksgiving for family, friends and all of you who have believed in me and given me the opportunity to guide you. I’m humbled by our adventures and the lifelong friendships that have come from them. Additional thanks to the mentors in the Pittsburgh Fly Fishing community who have been nothing but generous and forthcoming with help whenever I’ve needed it. 

Special shout-out to bluequillangler for the opportunity to guide full time this past summer. Hope the entire team has a great Thanksgiving and I’m looking forward to returning in the spring! 

I leave you with a quote from Loren Eiseley: 

“If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water.”

The second half of our 2022 Season is officially completed.  Easily our most challenging year to complete due to complicated travel schedules and constantly changing international regulations. 

Over 65% of our 2022 Guests paid for their trips in 2019, pre-pandemic, and yet they held on until the timing was right to come to the Amazon. 

It was well worth the wait, Guests have never been happier with our experience. We typically run a 50% Guest return rate, but based on post-trip conversations we are anticipating a much higher return average in 2023 and 2024. Many of our weeks are already spoken for, even though our official calendar isn't posted yet.

We could not have accomplished this without our phenomenal Guide team,  mothership Crew, Manaus team, support boat team, and logistics team. Thank you to all who have continued to work with us, and to our wonderful Hosts and Guests who continue fish with us and bring their friends.
