Right place Right time

River conditions on the Muskegon River remain ideal for fall steelhead fishing. Two-handed swung fly fly fishing tactics couldn't possibly be more favored under our current river conditions. One problem–for what ever reason our steelhead are in a strange state of flux. Perhaps its the...

Enough Wind Already!

Windy weather created very difficult conditions with the two-handers today. I'm really not sure many more leaves could have possibly fit in the river at any one given point. The good news is the winds are subsiding and a more reasonable day on the river is instore tomorrow,...

Firsts

First time fishing with Katie Ferner—Orvis Royal Oak fly fishing manager. Swinging flies was something new to Katie with the two-hander. After a lengthy explanation of the technique and the likelyhood of a calculated day under high skies, Katie proceeded to land her first two...
