High skies

High skies and dropping water made for some tough fly fishing on the Muskegon River for  steelhead today. Perseverance and determination are always key on days like these. Pictured is Mark under the guidance of RQ guide Ryan Randolph with Marks first steelhead. Congrats! Capt. Steven...
