I had the distinct pleasure of hosting a totally fun husband/wife team today. Mary and Jim were celebrating their 20th anniversary on the river fly fishing. Now that's an enlightened celebration! No boring recycling of the same anniversary restaurant for dinner. ...

Fred, Dave, and I hosted the team from Family Christian Bookstores and Blackstone Financial for an abbreviated midday float for Chinook salmon. The guys flew in from New York, Ohio, and Georgia so we started later in the day. I had Dave, David,...

Gotta love those father/son float trips!  Today, my good friend and long time client, Brian, treated his Dad, Gary, to day of fly fishing for Chinook salmon on the Manistee River.  Gary had never fly fished before, but did did a great job in learning...

Great time with a couple of instructional float trips. On Tuesday, I hosted my good friend and colleague Dave from Indiana, and on Wednesday, Charlie and Josh, who were part of a son, father, grandfather float with Steve and me. We started...

Great to be back on the water after a couple of weeks at the family cottage up North. With the river some 1500+ cfs higher than normal, air temperature 10-15 degrees cooler than normal, and "breezy" (a weather people term!) conditions the last two...

Per Steve's post of today, the day did start out cold—both in temperature and the bite. Ben and his guest Tim threw white, olive, and yellow streamers—all to no avail. The only fly the trout wanted at all was the "Trick-or-Treat" fly Steve...
