Fall Steelhead

High skies

High skies and dropping water made for some tough fly fishing on the Muskegon River for  steelhead today. Perseverance and determination are always key on days like these. Pictured is Mark under the guidance of RQ guide Ryan Randolph with Marks first steelhead. Congrats! Capt. Steven...

Redemption

Heart break this morning as our first fall steelhead of the season for my boat fell short of the net. It was really a comedy of errors as both clients lines managed to tangle into each other. As I was trying to untangle and ultimately...

Fall colors

Good finish

Good finish to a great week of swinging flies for fall steelhead on the Muskegon River. Greg and his son Jordan joined me today and while the grab this morning was anything but stellar, thankfully  we quickly made up for it this afternoon. Pictured is...
