It's all in the "intent" and while there are downright "Snaggers" out there, we don't condone Snagging and it is strictly enforced by the DEC officers. Do you know a "Snagger"???? Personally I think we're all
Snaggers in one way or another. Have fun with the hoodies....that's what their meant for and be sure to email us your Snagger shots....so we can put you in our Snagger album!!!!

About the Owner, Dawn A. Rucando|
Hello everyone! I'm Dawn Rucando and I'm the owner of Yankee Fly & Tackle Shop as well as www.FishTheSalmonRiver.com, Snagger--->, and "Salmon the Other Pink Meat" T-shirts. YFT has been around since 1982 and was started by Richard Mainolfi who was from CT. He loved to fish the Salmon River and bought the building which is one of the oldest buildings in downtown Pulaski New York (est. 1860's). He "retired" in 2001 and I bought the business in 2002. The lodge was opened in 2004 and the Premier Guide Service in 2005. I book trips for several local guides in the area and prefer to book full time guides first vs. guides who have full time jobs and only work the weekends. You can say I"m an "advocate" for full time guides as I too am a guide myself and I know how difficult it can be to make a living at just guiding alone. It is a great job and to make people happy and teach them how to catch that fish, well, it's very rewarding to say the least. There are several guides in the area and while some are local and many are not, choosing the right guide can be difficult and a crap shoot! The Salmon River NY is a serious river that has serious salmon, steelhead, brown trout, rainbow trout, etc. Our river has trophy fish that are measured in pounds, not inches ALL year long and if you want to mark it off your "Bucket List", Call or Email me! "Here Fishy Fishy"......315-489-6115.

We Have Salmon River NY Drift Boat Guides|
Guide #1 Has experience on the Salmon River since the early 90's and expert knowledge in fly fishing. He fishes ALL methods and has a drift boat that seats 2 adults comfortably or 1 adult and 2 small children. He's booked first on my list and great with children!Guide #2 Has a great temperament all around. Considered the "Nice Guide" and has his own drift boat. He ICE fishes in the winter months to feed his family and is in high demand in the Spring & Fall for our PEAK fishing seasons. He LOVES to turkey hunt in the month of May and will ask that I do not book him in the mornings because he's callin' Mr. Tom until noon.
Guide #3 Is more about getting fish for his customers. He can catch them and always has a Plan B and even a Plan C. He's got a big ego and doesn't want to let his customers down and would DIE if the other guides on the river heard he got skunked! New Guides as well as Experienced Guides are always keeping tabs on this guide....even going as far as seeing where he parks his drift boat trailer & truck. They pretty much follow what he does but never admit it!
Guide #4 Prefers the older crowd and is retired from his city job. He gets along better with spey fishermen who have traveled the World. He prefers not to be booked with children because he says he's not a "babysitter" and enjoys the company of gentlemen fly & spey anglers. This guide is excellent at casting and picking out just the right fly when Mother Nature throws a curve ball. This guide does not have a drift boat and prefers to get to the river early and be away from the public fishing areas. He's got a good sense of humor too.
January & Feb= ICE Fishing or weekend WINTER steelhead trips.
March & April = PRIME SPRING Steelhead Season (Browns & Rainbows too)
Advance Rates Start at $399
and covers up to 2 anglers. If you're a single angler, the rate is still
$399 for an advance booking.
Please always call to see if there have been any changes or
cancellations as we have several guides to choose from. (315) 489-6115 Depending on the guide, we may be able
to squeeze you in last minute if the guide is willing to extend his time on the
water. All efforts to secure you a guide will require a non-refundable
deposit of $100 at the time of your call. Please be prepared, thank you.

is a reminder that we do not allow smoking in our building. It's a known
fact that smoking causes fires. Anyone caught smoking in our building will
be kicked out with no refunds! This fire happened December 30, 2009 across
the street from us at the FishOn! Motel and "Sportfishing Complex" where it
states on the lighted sign, $20 per person. A man
died. The rumors were that it was an electric heater but that's
not the truth. The truth is that because the rooms are so CHEAP, the owner
can't afford to heat them and the renter did use an electric heater however he
caused the fire by falling asleep with a cigarette. This is why there are
big bold signs on the front doors of all the rooms saying, "NO SMOKING".
So, we remind you here at Yankee Fly Wife Approved Lodge that there is no
smoking in our building. You can smoke outside around the side of the
building and not in front where other guests will be bothered. Thank you
for understanding. I might also add that I was a smoker of 20 years and
quit in 2007. I"m not sure why I did all those years as it's a terrible habit
and addiction. Nothing good comes from it. While I understand all about
smoking, I just now prefer that smokers do their smoking somewhere else where I
can't breath it in or my non-smoking lodging guests.

Patrick's Day falls on March 17, 2012 next weekend and the steelhead fishing on
the Salmon River in Pulaski, NY 13142 continues to thrive due to the one limit
per angler regulation the NYS DEC has imposed. Each angler can CATCH as
many Salmon River New York Steelhead as they want but they may only keep one
each day. Our guide service teaches anglers how to properly handle the
steelhead so they (and others) can catch and release that same steelhead over
and over again. This St. Patrick's Day we challenge

official, SPRING Steelhead Season is here! We had record breaking
temperatures yesterday in the mid 60's! Many anglers took advantage of the
nice weather and called in sick! Speaking of the "weather", you just never
know what it's going to be like around Pulaski NY since conditions can change
within twenty four hours. A local guide said to me, "If you're waitn' on
