Just Perfect – Steelhead Fly Rodding

What a great time Steelhead fly rodding today on Michigan’s Muskegon River with my friend and pastor, Greg VanderMeer of Fair Haven Church in Hudsonville. Greg is an outdoorsman through and through and has contracted the fly fishing bug, big time.  Glad I am that he has the bug because I love the guy with my having grown spiritually from his preaching, counsel, and friendship. Not only that, he’s a riot to have in the boat!  So, no surprise that I was delighted to host him and get him into steelhead fly rodding all day long, plus be able to fish myself, which at this time of year, I rarely get a chance to do.

With only a light breeze and temps popping the 70 degree mark, Greg and I just soaked it all in: the tremendous fishing; the beauty and fight of these great game fish; the forest coming alive; caddis and black stoneflies emerging; and, of course, the sun; that glorious sun, which erased memories of last week’s weather debacle of rain, ice, and snow.

As for the steelhead run, the numbers of new fish in the river showing up over the last couple of days is very encouraging. Hence, we’re hooking more bright fish than in weeks past. Flows remain unusually high for this time of year due, in part, to repairs underway to the upstream dam.  The fish love it, though, and we’re managing to connect with them at a very good clip.

Thanks for a most memorable day, Greg. I loved every minute of it, which I can attest was simply perfect!
