301’s

Excellent streamer conditions continue on the Muskegon. Joining me today were two brand new fly fisherman–yes, day one they learned full-court press streamer tactics! The art of fly fishing rarely begins midway through the book, but with a mere 8 hours to learn to cast...

The Unknown

Streamer season is here and along with it, high dirty water—EL Perfecto! The fun of this time of year is the unknown! You just don't know what's going to grab! While we hunted our rivers large brown trout  unsuccessfully today we were rewarded with some...

Out with a bang

Great finish for the McKay group today! While the weather certainly didn't through us any favors, solid steelhead fishing made up for our short comings. Pictured is Bill with a beautiful hen steelhead he caught prior to lunch.  Capt. Steven Kuieck...
