A Blast from the Past to Fly Fish

A Blast from the Past to Fly Fish

It’s been a decade or so since Kevin was in my boat, but today, there he was ready to fly fish! He and I go back some 38 years to when, as a freshman at Jenison High School, he was a student in my ninth grade English class. We got along great then, as we have every time he has come to fly fish with me. So, then, it was no surprise that today was no exception to the rule as he and his guest Randy were served a Chamber of Commerce brochure kind of day: temps in the 70’s, virtually no wind, cloudless skies, eagles soaring overhead, and steelhead to fly fish—some of which were bright and full of fight.

Here Kevin (The guy with the cowboy hat!) and Randy pose fresh run female steelhead, both of which had just begun to spawn. There must be something about May, though, that lures fishermen away from the river because, as in past years, relatively few (for a bluebird Saturday) fishermen were on the river to fly fish. Pretty puzzling because plenty of steelhead are there.  Fine with us, though; it proved a quiet, productive fly fish, and flat-out gorgeous day on Michigan’s Muskegon River.

Congratulations, Kevin and Randy, on boating these great gamefish on the long rods and flies. You guys were a delight, and I sincerely hope we can do it again in the future.
