Spring Steelhead

Starting 24

The Heneveld Group joined Ryan and I today for their annual spring steelhead trip. It’s hard to believe we’re starting our 24th year of fly fishing together, it honestly seems like just yesterday!  The memories and laughs we’ve shared over the years are truly the...

High Skies & Wind

It was a beautiful spring day here in Michigan. Definately too nice for the likes of our steelhead. Thankfully the broad size of Muskegon River gives a layer of comfort to our steelhead even on the brightest of days. Pictured is Pat with a heavy...

“Come Fish with Us” II

The second and final day of the hosted Orvis event featured a much more manageable amount of angler pressure despite the wonderful weather. Everyone again was able to pose a few steelhead for the camera. A big “thanks” to Orvis Grand Rapids & Orvis Royal...

Converted!

What a delight it was to host Brian, who was part of the Orvis group, for two days. New to fly fishing for steelhead, Brian was into a number of fish, trout and steelhead, and here posts a fresh run hen that he brought to...

“Come Fish with Us”

”Come fish with us” Orvis hosted trip got underway today with temperatures in the 60’s and a very busy river. I honestly can’t blame anyone who took to the river today, nice weather & steelhead fishing don’t often go hand in hand. Changing conditions has...

RiverQuest guide Captain Don Graham put his guys on steelhead throughout the day today with multiple hookups and fish brought to net with flies and  fly rods. Here, Gary hoists a hefty 14 lb. winter buck that garnered top honors for the day. Congratulations, Gary,...

A Different Kind of Chrome

For years, Devin Boetsma, owner of Schut's Body Shop in Hudsonville, Michigan has repaired, renewed, and—in the case of the 1972 Corvette that I bought new in '72—restored our family's vehicles. I remember his urging me to have the Corvette's bumpers replated with "show chrome,"...

Trade offs–back from the South

It’s been several years since Jim relocated to south Florida from the Detroit, Michigan. Sure, “fun in the sun” is the name of the game in the south, but steelhead aren’t available there and despite all the warm weather fly fishing opportunities Florida has, it’s...

Showing Dad How!

Longtime fly fisherman, Chuck, and his son, Matt, who is new to working the long rod, prevailed over a heavy river flow (5,100 cfs) and frigid 36.5 degree water temperature to secure some steelhead love on Michigan's Muskegon River today. A quick study, Matt learned...
