Converted!

What a delight it was to host Brian, who was part of the Orvis group, for two days. New to fly fishing for steelhead, Brian was into a number of fish, trout and steelhead, and here posts a fresh run hen that he brought to...

Big Boy!

RiverQuest guide Captain Don Graham put his guys on steelhead throughout the day today with multiple hookups and fish brought to net with flies and  fly rods. Here, Gary hoists a hefty 14 lb. winter buck that garnered top honors for the day. Congratulations, Gary,...

The Best of Friends

Such a terrific time with former educational colleague Bob and his dear friend and bamboo rod maker Ron, both of whom have fished with me for years.  The guys wanted to fish for salmon, and although the run is winding down, the day proved action...

Buddies Three!

Spectacular day on the Muskegon River today with son Ryan and his two buddies, Ken and Brandon! With a glorious sunrise to greet us, the guys got into the king salmon big time with hookups throughout the day and good numbers of them finding their...
