Father and Sons-in-Law Adventure Steelhead Trip
Having been the successful bidder for the Harmony House fly fishing steelhead trip yours truly made available, Bill rounded up his two sons-in-law for a steelhead trip on the Muskegon River for a family guys bonding adventure. I love doing these steelhead trip because I feel that in some small way, I’m helping family members grow ever closer to one another. So it appeared today; the guys had a flat-out riot with one another and with me. Even better they were into steelhead all day, though, as is sometimes the case, “The big ones got away.”
The spring spawning run on the Muskegon is well underway. Although none of us likes getting soaked with rain, the fact is that we need it to raise the river flow and to bring more steelhead upriver. Looks as if the weatherman is about to give us what we need (and maybe more) in the days to come. Stay tuned.
Here, Bill poses a youngster that gave him way more of a tussle than he or we thought it could dish out given its modest size. Just goes to show that fish, too, apparently have temperaments; some fight, to be sure, but others like this guy, just won’t quit.
Thanks guys for a most delightful day of fishing and conversation. I truly hope we can toss lines together again someday in the future on another steelhead trip.
