Wonderful day on the Manistee today:  gorgeous fall weather and great company.  Very few fish in the upper river, however, but John and his 91 year-old father-in-law Harold, managed to connect with some kings.  Our landing percentage wasn’t the best, but it didn’t matter to...

Seasons come; seasons go, and so it was with mixed feelings today that Captain Don Graham and I hit the Muskegon for one last smallie float.  We were sad to say "Good-bye" to the smallmouth bass that have given us and our clients such a...

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, ...

And so return we did, but first, of course, we had to see if the trout would play, and, indeed, they did.  Action was fast on streamers and before we knew it, it was anchor time.  We quickly located the anchor and...

Finally, finally, I was able to get back on the river! After competing in the annual northern Michigan, Deming/Kuieck "pasture pool" tour based at our cottage in Leland, I was thrilled to be back in Captain Don's boat on the Muskegon. With the...
