A Day to Remember!

Former Jenison Public High School student of mine, Kevin Shrock, with his son-in-law, Ian, pose the first of numerous steelhead they hooked and brought to hand today. Occasionally, fly fishing for steelhead on Michigan's Muskegon River can be so good that the customers take a...

First Cast a Charm!

Dear friend, former colleague, and now retired Jenison Pubic Schools superintendent, Tom TenBrink, launched one cast and met this Muskegon River buck. Of course, I had to tease him about his magnifying it’s size by nearly having it kiss my camera phone! Steelhead are coursing the...

The last time Jake and I fished together was in 2018. We and four families spent a couple weeks taking in all that Yellowstone Park could offer by RV. The lasting memories we share fly fishing Slough Creek are nothing short of comical as we...
