Earlier this month, I hosted a group of clients for three days of fishing and fun at the West Branch Angler—in Hancock, New York—which sits on one of the nicest looking and most productive stretches of the West Branch of the Delaware River. Our group opted to see a variety of the different fishing waters in the area, and over the three days spent time on the East Branch, the West Branch, and the main stem of the Delaware. To put it plainly, the fishing was outstanding. Most trout fisherman have never seen backing leave their reel, yet we saw backing every day of the trip. A big thanks goes out to the guides for our trip—John Miller, Gary Henderson, and Scott McClintock—without a doubt some of the fishiest dudes I have ever had the pleasure to share a boat with. I will let the photos tell the rest of the story, so check out the slideshow below.
