Parting gift

Winter is upon us. Our first Winter Storm Warning is in effect and with it I think it's time to embrace "winter steelhead season". December has proven to be our best month for swinging flies for a second year in a row. And with Peter's...

First MI Swing

Peter, director of Eastern Orvis ELOG joined me today for his first of two days swinging Michigan steelhead. While Peter has been privileged to swing flies in many areas across the country, today was his first in our mitten. Thankfully our Muskegon River didn't disappoint,...

Busy

Favorable conditions brought out a pretty good numbers of anglers on river today. Not a real big surprise, but certainly more than most days. Fishing waters less traveled was key today. As well as lengthening out the leaders as the falls again. Pictured is Phil with...

My Turn

I love guiding—it's the best job on the planet! Dispite having a big list of things to accomplish around the lodge and in the office today, I just simply couldn't resist the urge to swing up some chrome of my own. One fish was the...

Great day Great guy

A 20 degree morning on the Muskegon River gave us some seriously red cheeks for the first few hours of our day. The water temperature is dropping and conditions are moving towards a more predictable normal. All-in-all it was a good day on the swing. Pictured...

40 degree swing

The crazy weather continues. 70 degrees Friday afternoon and 32 degrees and heavy snow showers Saturday afternoon! Simply crazy to have a 40 degree swing in 24 hours. Pictured is Dr. Whetzel with RQ guide Jay Allen with a nice steelhead off his two-hander before...

One of those days

Last day with the MRO crew—today was a memorable one for sure! Couldn't be happier for them! Now if the big bucks would just show my son and I a favor or two! Pictured is Scott with dime bright hen with RQ guide Dave this afternoon. Capt....

Congrats!

Low-clear water continues to test the tenacity of our clients. Covering plenty of water and making good use of every swing has been the ticket. Not a lot of words needed toward Rich and his truly awesome steelhead on his two-hander from today...
