What’s Gained and Lost by Privatizing River Access?

As Grey Reef's largest (by far) private access holder for over 20 years we commend Christine's approach. Many huge benefits to private access for our guests. It comes with drawbacks as well.

In the West, where the water is for fighting and the whiskey is for drinking, we take a look at what's gained and lost by privatizing river access

Nymphing for Trout | North Platte River Wyoming

Still very relevant 15 years later and indicative of our approach and philosophy still today. NPL founder and my mentor Bret Van Rensselaer along with his father Art Van Rensselaer, owner of the Ugly Bug and TRFS, passed the torch to two of the NPL guides in 2007. Co-Owner Trent Tatum wearing an Ugly Bug Fly Shop logo because North Platte Lodge and Ugly Bug were associated up until the sale of the Ugly Bug to the Martins in the mid 2000s. The Reef Fly Shop was a satellite shop originally called The Ugly Bug. Little history for a beautiful Friday.

As Women's History Month comes to a close today, we'd like to give a shout out to the strong, adventurous women out there–we all have at least one that comes to mind. May we know them, may we raise them, and may all girls grow up to be them.

Nala our now 3-year-old Female Husky has now been missing for one year from the Arnold, NE area since 2/9/18. She is Grey/Black, Blue Eyes and a White face. We believe someone passing through the Nebraska area may have picked her up and without tags or collar was unable to contact us. If you have seen her or know someone who might have her, PLEASE help us bring her home. We are offering a $2000 reward for her safe return. Thank You! 402-214-4737
Thanks for another great trip!
Saw this nice hat in The Drake mag...seemed familiar....
I just carved this Brown Trout pendant in bone, available now, $130.00 includes mailing from here in New Zealand! Pay by Paypal, my account listed under my email address: [email protected] See my many fish species carvings at louiethefish.com and on my pages!
Always a great trip! Thanks Eric Anderson for your patience with my daughter’s first trip. We always catch fish and have a great time!
The lodge is lovely. The guide service is The Bomb. It is truly full service, and the fishing is simply stupid awesome.
