With a cardiologist and a mortgage broker in my boat today, I figured I had every base covered.   If I hyperventilated over errant casts or a Big Bertha lost or needed a 30 year fixed mortgage to assuage any angst I might have accumulated...

First Muskegon River smallmouth bass trip of the year today with bud and fellow RiverQuest guide Don Graham.  Lots of fun, though, the bite started off tough.  The water was significantly off-color from recent rain, and the river was choc-full of minnows—literally thousands of them.  ...

Great evening of dry fly fishing today with friend and client Jeff and his guest Mark!  Both guys are dry fly neophytes, but with trout rising to cinnamon caddis for well over two hours, the guys eagerly ventured into the world of dry fly fishing, ...

Captain Don Graham and I spent a delightful day stripping streamers and literally boating more trout than we could count. Most were plants of this year, to be sure, but many ran 8-10" in size. Toss in some carry-over trout from last...

Captain Don and I came prepared today for whatever the MO would give us:  C&D rods and indicator/fat line rods for steelhead; sinktips and weight forward floating lines for trout.  Turns out, most of the extra tackle stayed in the case:  we fished steelhead all...

With less steelhead in love every day, we were indeed fortunate to find a couple a young ladies attended by numerous admirers. Ron Barch, bamboo rod builder extrordinaire, and his friend and former educational colleague of mine, Dr. Bob Oster, joined me for a...
