70 degrees in Michigan! Can you believe it? Captain Don Graham and I sure could: the day started with a chill, but quickly warmed, so off came the jackets and waders. By late morning, Little Black Stone Flies started showing up—first...

The 2009 Michigan Fly Fishing Club's fly fishing show in Warren, Michigan, is now history, and what a great show it turned out to be! National speakers like Gary Borger, large numbers of manufacturers and retail shops, and, of course, outfitters like RiverQuest Charters...

Spring is in the air! Captain Don Graham hosted me on his boat for an afternoon of fly fishing for steelhead on the Muskegon today. Temps in the low thirties, but sunshine galore, which seemingly brought wildlife out for a sunbath. Turkeys...

Trick or Treat? That was the question for us on the Muskegon with the salmon run finished and the steelhead only starting their ascent up the river. Since my longtime client and friend Ben had invited one of his clients, Andy, who owns...

Great time on the Manistee with Oklahomans, Jack and Janice. As Steve noted below, today was our coldest day of the fall, with the temp in Big Rapids at 19 and on the Manistee surely in the low 20's, if not lower. Hence, the...

Ken brought his friend and customer, John, for a day of fly fishing for king salmon today.  Both guys were experienced:  Ken, an avid outdoorsman (who is off to the West for an elk hunt next week, lucky stiff!), fished with me in a downpour...

Overcast skies gave us opportunities all day as Paul and his guest Steve fished with me today. Steve is a confirmed Thunderstick tosser so he approached the entire fly fishing scene with curiosity, if not healthy skepticism. But jump in he did, quickly...

Fred and I hosted the Henneveld group today; I had Dan and his CAD and fabrication expert, Brett, in my boat. Anticipating a wet day with high winds, I was delighted with another superb Michigan October day. Both Fred and I concentrated...
