Sheesh!  What a cooker!  Temps in the 90's and no breeze!  Without question, one of the warmest days I've ever had on the river.  No matter, though, Ross and Doug, went to work with the sink tips and streamers, and the trout cooperated with frequent...

Introducing people to fly fishing is one of the real joys of guiding, and doing so with the fat lines is all the better. Saturday afternoon and evening I had the privilege of teaching Kevin, our Riverquest website developer and manager, and his girlfriend...

Can't come close to Captain Steve's last post (Congratulations, Steve!), but any time I can spend time on the river with best friend and Riverquest guide, Captain Don Graham, it's an opportunity I'll snatch every time! So, off to the Muskegon we went for...

As a guide, one is impressed by any number of things from clients:  character, knowledge, skill level, passion for the outdoors, love of our fly fishing sport to mention a few.  But today, I was impressed by a young man named David, a fifth grader,...

The question of the day, "Will the river be running too high and dirty [for good fly fishing]?"  I assured Pat that yesterday the river was up but clear.  So, much to my chagrin, there the MO was this morning—Nestle's Quik!  No matter, Pat and...

Two architects, Craig and Darrel, joined me for what proved to be an excellent day of fly fishing for steelhead. Although we didn't land all we hooked, the guys put enough in the boat to make it a memorable day. Neither had fly fished...
