Uncle and nephew pair in my boat today; Pat brought his nephew Mark for a day of steelhead fly fishing. Mark had his chance—actually two of them on the same drift. Chrome on; chrome off.  Strip in—wham! Another one.  He's on—he's off! Mark continued undaunted,...

Chamber of Commerce day on the Muskegon; no marketing maven could have created a more perfect, peaceful day on the water.  Salmon cooperated as did a steelhead, chrome bright, that burnt line, leaped, and was gone.  Scott was new to fly fishing, but within less...
