Why we love them

Steelhead are simply a fantastic adversary to chase with a fly. Particularly so with the two-handed rod and a swung fly. Yesterday as massive arctic front plowed through the Muskegon River region and at times had you guessing whether you actually were swinging your fly...

Just right

Everything was just right on the river today–good guys and cooperative steelhead! I couldn't have asked for it to have been better for the guys. The river has fallen to a near ideal level. Water temperatures remain right about 50 degrees which is still pretty...

Two years in a row John has found a way to put some chrome up for our featured image of the day. Let’s see if he can make it 3 for 3 tomorrow. Rivers droppng and no clouds are in sight—gonna have to earn it. Capt. Steven...
