Today was a study in contrasts:  Jim and his host Jeff hooked up on Jeff's first cast with the buck sucking in a chartruese and nuke egg.  The fish were active, fresh, and hookups were no problem.  Jim, Jeff's former pastor and good friend, is...

Today was payback on the weather front for the blue skies of yesterday. Showers and steady rain accompanied Tim and Todd's day on the Muskegon. Todd was up from Atlanta and heard about Dad's success on the Manisee with Captain Don Graham, so...

Whew! A break in the rainy, windy weather! Two wonderful people! What more could a guide want? Just a most enjoyable day today with Jim and his wife, Mary, for whom he bought a RiverQuest gift certificate as a Christmas present....

Today marked the best Chinook fly fishing I've been privileged to experience as a guide. The Manistee is flat-out filled with Kings, and thanks to Captain Don's directions, we got into fresh fish eager to take the fly. I lost count of the...

Thought I would pass on a recommendation to those of you interested in learning how to Spey Cast. I enrolled in Great Lakes Fly Fishing Company's Spey Casting Class, organized by Great Lakes staffer and Spey caster, Bob Brindle. Each of us at...

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...

Absolutely superb atmospherics, great company, and willing steelhead!  Now that's a winning combination!  Joining me today were my friend Dick and his Pastor, Jerry.  Let's see:  we had turkeys, an osprey diving into the water to take a trout, waterfowl galore, and a mink.  What...
