Hey, I know those two boys

As I have said many times before--If you the sporting world is to continue, you need to bring your kids! Joining me yesterday was my middle son Zach and his younger brother Bryce. This would be the first salmon trip for both boys. Knowing that...

Captain Steve has the report of the day with his having taken his two youngest sons fly fishing on the Muskegon.  Love those grandsons! My two guys, Dave and Tom, friends and colleagues from my past professional life, stressed that they weren't so interested in boating...

Fishing the Manistee river today with Dave and John, first thing this morning John hooked a large salmon that gave us a challenge trying to keep it out of the snags, the salmon won. That's what fishing is all about, the challenge to bring them...

The whole crew

Jeff Segard along with his children Zach, Jordan, and Grace joined me for an exceptional day on the river. Sunny skies and cooperative salmon made for an enjoyable day astream. Though we made many contributions to the snags everyone brought fish to hand. Many more...

For today's damp and windy adventure I was joined by Pat McGee and his brother Terry. This morning we decided we could get a better picture and released the first fish brought to hand, at lunch time that was beginning to look like a bad...
