Spring Steelhead

Last Swing

After spending the weekend at the Fly Fishing Expo it was nice to enjoy a beautiful day on the river. The river rose considerably today and took on quite a bit of color—very good things should be in our near future.  I spent the day doing what...

Last Cast

One would think that the fish gods would shower some love on two guys who trekked to the Muskegon River to stay at our Muskegon River Lodge and fly fish with their four buddies and guides Jay, Don, and me.  Oh, the gods gave love...

Today Steve and I hosted Mike Kiley and his crew from 3M who were in town to spend some quality time with Action Fab's Jon Rudolph. Instead of doing business on the golf course, fishing was the event of the day. The guys all did...
