Happy Thanksgiving

Great finish to a shorty holiday week with the Martin Family. Jonathan and his three sons joined us for a quick steelhead trip before their family celebrates Thanksgiving together. Fishing continues to be tough and every steelhead seems to be well earned. A decent rain...

Blue Bird day

Peter and his son Peter joined me for their annual Spey fall steelhead trip on the Muskegon River. It couldn’t have possibly been a more beautiful day on the river. Sunny skies and mid 50’s made it very nice. Blue Bird weather is definitely not...
