Captains Steve, Dave, Don, and I just returned from the Midwest Fly Fishing Expo, held this weekend, in Warren, Michigan.  The largest fly fishing show in which RiverQuest and the Muskegon River Lodge participates, it is also our final show of the 2011 season.  Steve...

Captains Steve, Don, and I just returned from a most enjoyable and productive trade show, the Chicago Outdoor Expo in Woodstock, Illinois.  Organized and operated by the Woodstock Rotary Club as a charity fund raiser, the event is in its third year with 2011 by...

Captain Don Graham and I continue to snoop on the progress of the 2011 steelhead run with some first-hand investigation; the way we figure, someone has to do it...

Friendship is one of God's richest gifts so to get back on the river with buddy and fellow RiverQuest guide Don Graham and enjoy our friendship made for a wonderful day of fly fishing on Big MO.  With the promise of high 30's temps and...

Another most enjoyable day with father/son team, Ray and Kevin.  A chilly 31 degrees as we pushed off from the Muskegon River Lodge, the day dawned bright with wisps of fog rising from the river.  Apparently, the steelhead decided to sleep in because the early...

Chrome anyone?  With October slipping away and November creeping up on us, yes, it's whitetails time, but on the river, it's all about silver steelhead, now present in the Muskegon in good numbers.  Kevin, up from his home in Kentucky, and his dad, Ray, joined...
