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...

What an experience!  Our nine day foray into the Alaskan bush was extraordinary—fly fishing so spectacular that one needs to live it first-hand to understand and appreciate.  We fished silver salmon (Coho) so fresh from the sea the sea lice on them still had tails,...

This afternoon, I had the pleasure of hosting Mary and her son Joe for an instructional fly fishing float trip.  Mary has successfully fished C & D and switch rod-laden fat lines with indicators with me and wished to grow her fly fishing skills.  I...
