Fall Steelhead

T-shirt Swing

Today was not your typical fall day for chasing steelhead! Hi skies and afternoon temperatures in the mid-70s sure created an unusual backdrop for swinging flies. I think that it will be a safe bet that we won't likely have another afternoon quite like this...

Not easy, but oh so awesome!

Any steelhead on the two-hander is super cool, but with the relatively warm 54 degree water these steelhead are a handful! Determination and hard work still remain key elements to success. Nothing has been easy this fall. Pictured is Matt with an excellent swung fly...

Worth the Effort

All smiles

Great finish to a very busy week! I could curse the prolific amount of leaves in the river today but honestly it's Friday and I'm a happy guy. Steelhead opportunities were good today, as it goes with October chrome, landing them is the real challenge!...

Silver endings

Wrapped up with the McKay group this afternoon and already look forward to their annual return next year! Fishing had its challenges over the past several days, but memories were made and pictures were taken. Speaking of pictures, Mark is pictured with two of his...

Massachusetts Meets Michigan

Last fall, Peter and his son Arioch, who live in Boston, fly fished with me for fall steelhead on the Muskegon River with good success. Arioch photographed my releasing his steelhead, and dad Peter enlarged and framed the pic which now hangs on his office...
