After 10 days of having been barred from the river—first by extraordinarily high water and then by order of the Newaygo County Emergency Management Director—Captain Don and I were able to get on the water to check out the condition of the river and the...

What a pleasure to host a father/son team who give their personal time to recruit and train youngsters via a six year course of study with field and stream hands-on application in the joys of fly fishing.  The efforts of the Order of the Jungle...

The picture of Ron and Bob says it all:  these guys, two friends of mine, are a barrel of fun.  Ron the bamboo rod maker and Bob the golfer share an infectious enthusiasm for life and the out-of-doors, making a day with them on the...

Things were pretty esoteric in the boat today; Bill and Mike, both from the University of Missouri—Bill the statistician/geneticist and Mike, the research physicist—were guests of Ron Barch.  Conversational topics ranged from quantum physics to the statistic I used for my last degree.  Suffice it...
