Spring Steelhead

TGIF!

Wow, great day to be alive! A little better than 70 degrees this afternoon under blue bird skies–certainly not steelhead weather, but c'mon how could anyone complain about being on the river on a day like today! The high-water express is over and clear water...

End of the Rainbow

There it was as Chuck, Mike, and I motored up the Muskegon River this morning: a double rainbow—a portent, we hoped, of rich things to come. And come they did. No pot of gold but plenty of silver that bent fly rods all day long. ...

Spring gifted Ron, Bob, and me with some soft breezes, high skies, and warm—oh, so wonderfully warm—sunshine.  With temps popping 60, tiny mayflies and brown stone flies took flight, their wings fluttering, reflecting in the sunlight.  Steelhead, both winter fish and bright, newly run bullets,...
