Absolutely wonderful day on the Mighty MO with Charlie and his nine year-old daughter Katie.  With mid-twenties temperature and a breeze to boot along with ice under foot greeting us at the start of the day, though, I found myself wondering how long Katie would...

Call it what you will—rationalization, delusion, or flat-out craziness—but the fact is, for those of us either choosing to remain the “frozen chosen” here in the North or having been relegated to that unenviable state, a great book encountered on a winter’s eve is a...

Last fall, during a steelhead float with Dr. Kevin, one of my out-of-town clients, the conversation turned to writing and specifically, outdoor writing.  Kevin, whose neurological medicine-based book will be published internationally early in 2011, enjoys sporting literature, as do I.  When Kevin learned I...

No, RiverQuest guides haven't taken a long nap; it's Mother Nature throwing us some pretty challenging conditions:  sub-freezing temps, high wind, and very low river flows.  What's a guide to do?  Exercise Plan B—in this case a whitetail deer hunt to southern Illinois with Sugar...

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...

Calling all ladies! To the fairer sex, why sit at home and let your guy have all the fun?  For Jim and Mary, it's just the opposite:  he's the hunter; she's the gung-ho fisherman.  Mary and Jim have C&D'd with me in the past so today...

Avid fishermen, John and Johnnie, joined me today because they found themselves wondering what all this fly fishing stuff is about.  Referred by long-time client Kevin, John and Johnnie spent the entire day alternating fishing one 11' 3" switch rod with indicator.  Both guys caught...

Father and son team, Peter and Arioc, from Boston hopped in my boat Monday for some salmon action on the fly rod.  Both had fished the Muskegon previously via C & D, but neither had used the switch rods with indicators and fat lines.  So,...

Jim and Chris from Chicago joined me for a day of fly fishing for Chinook salmon today.  Although fewer fish were in evidence compared with earlier in the week and despite the fact that we spent much of our day searching and searching for fish,...
