The wind layed down and we finally cleared the leaves and debris from the river! This alone made for a very enjoyable day of swing flies on the Muskegon. The steelhead certainly took notice and provided first-time two-handers–Matt and Garrit a whale of a first time! I think they do believe me when I told them that tomorrow could be different and to count their blessings, but who knows, I’d be happy if they were spoiled again! Pictured above is Matt with his first, and Garrit lower, with one after lunch.
