Paul and I tried to temp chrome today, but the only one that wanted to play busted off.  No matter, Paul was quite contented to battle salmon after salmon as consolation prizes.  A walleye and big lake salmon guy, Paul took to casting  indicators on...

South Africa meets Florida meets Michigan.  Tony from South Africa and Josh from Tampa, Florida, both of whom are business associates, spent the day with me chasing chrome with fat lines and indicators on switch rods.  True to form, the majority of the steelhead won...

Once again, Harold retains the RiverQuest "Most Veteran Client" award!  Moreover, at 92  years of age, Harold's honors are likely safe for some time to come.  I can only hope that not only do I live as long and as well as Harold, but that...

You know it's going to be a great day when your client (in this case, friend) presents you with a jar of her "Mary's Berries," a jam so renowned  that securing a container is little short of a major coup!  Mary and Jim celebrated their...

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...

Ron and Bob, neighbors and best friends, joined me for a day on the Muskgon fly fishing for Kings.  Although fishing was more challenging today than yesterday, the guys hooked fish throughout the day.  Once again, chartreuse caddis and steelhead orange/chartreuse nuke eggs were our...

One would be hard pressed to script a more perfect day of fall Chinook fly fishing: spectacular weather, freshly arrived happy Kings,  zip fishing pressure, and great company.  Dave and Tom, long time colleagues in my past professional life and good friends forever, hooked any...

Absolutely gorgeous fall day on the Manistee with brother-in-law Jack and his grandson, Keenan!  Excellent water flow with salmon on or near gravel in very large numbers.  Jack and Keenan are new to fly fishing, but both caught on quickly to the cast and line...

Childhood buddies, Ryan and Ken, were my special guests today on the Manistee.  Ryan, my youngest son, has all too little time to fish and hunt due to long hours in the fabrication shop with his welding career, and Ken, having recently returned from a...

Absolute killer day on the Manistee with clients and good friends, husband and wife Jim and Mary!  We've said it before:  this is the best run of chinook (and coho) salmon we've had in years:  excellent numbers and mean weights around 18 lbs. Top fish...
