Great time on the Manistee with Oklahomans, Jack and Janice. As Steve noted below, today was our coldest day of the fall, with the temp in Big Rapids at 19 and on the Manistee surely in the low 20's, if not lower. Hence, the...

Ken brought his friend and customer, John, for a day of fly fishing for king salmon today.  Both guys were experienced:  Ken, an avid outdoorsman (who is off to the West for an elk hunt next week, lucky stiff!), fished with me in a downpour...

Overcast skies gave us opportunities all day as Paul and his guest Steve fished with me today. Steve is a confirmed Thunderstick tosser so he approached the entire fly fishing scene with curiosity, if not healthy skepticism. But jump in he did, quickly...

Fred and I hosted the Henneveld group today; I had Dan and his CAD and fabrication expert, Brett, in my boat. Anticipating a wet day with high winds, I was delighted with another superb Michigan October day. Both Fred and I concentrated...

Another gorgeous day on the Muskegon! Mark brought his good friend John, who, while an experienced steelhead and salmon river fisherman, was new to the fly rod. After a morning of "C & D," which netted some fish, we switched to indicator fishing...

Great times on the Muskegon! My daughter Julie had long ago put in a request for me to take her; her fellow nursing student, Laura; and urban church startup friend, Chad. So off we went—guide and three young people for whom fly fishing...

I had the distinct pleasure of hosting a totally fun husband/wife team today. Mary and Jim were celebrating their 20th anniversary on the river fly fishing. Now that's an enlightened celebration! No boring recycling of the same anniversary restaurant for dinner. ...

Fred, Dave, and I hosted the team from Family Christian Bookstores and Blackstone Financial for an abbreviated midday float for Chinook salmon. The guys flew in from New York, Ohio, and Georgia so we started later in the day. I had Dave, David,...

As I've noted in the past, family trips—and especially those with three generations—are the best. Today was no exception with my hosting grandfather Arlan who brought his son, Doug, and six year old grandson, Grant. Arlan was the successful bidder for the float...
