Great time on the Manistee today with Paul.  Again, wonderful high 60's weather, a great run of Chinook salmon, and hookups throughout the day.  Some steelhead are beginning to show up; I Spey cast to one that porpoised as early arriving steelhead are wont to...

Major Chamber of Commerce day on the Manistee today; I doubt whether I'll encounter a more perfect combination of weather, plentiful salmon, and happy fishermen.  Daybreak in light fog was a nearly holy moment. Mark treated his father-in-law, Steve, an avid fisherman and hunter, to a...

September?  Must be time to fly fish some Chinook, and so it was on the Manistee today for daughter Julie, son Ryan, and Ryan's best buddy Ken.  What a great time we had together:  perfect low 70's early fall day, clear water, fresh run Kings,...

Just goes to show, one doesn't need to boat a basket of bass to experience a most enjoyable day.  Guests Darryl from Chicago and Rich from Bonita Springs, Florida were new to fly fishing, but the bass decided to go on strike.  Fortunately, about the...

"Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated." No, neither fellow RiverQuest guide and best fishing bud, Don Graham, or I have read our obituaries as Mark Twain found himself doing one day in the New York Journal,ˆbut those of you who might have thought the...

One of the great joys of guiding is making life-long friends. So it is for me with Mary and Jim.  They're way more than clients, and as they grow their fly fishing skills, it's a joy to see them enjoy our sport all the more....
