Straight on and Strive for Tone

Yesterday, on one last guides'-day-out before our fall salmon and steelhead bookings beckon, fellow RiverQuest guide Don Graham and I heeded the musicians’ mantra and gave the Muskegon River’s smallmouth our best shot.  Smallie fly fishing has been terrific lately so we set out with...
