Trout Fishing Update -  Winter Trout... It's not for the weak minded let me tell you, whether its frozen hands, frozen feet, or just your whole body is frozen it takes a certain person with the right amount of passion to do it. With all those things there are a few people who love it, and myself along with my client Jim are those crazy people standing in the river in a snowstorm chasing trout. We had a slow morning working side pockets Euro Nymphing very slow water and inside seams which got us a couple smaller trout nothing to write...

So Michigan did Michigan things again over the last 2 weeks... From 20 inches of snow and -10 degrees, to rain and highs in the 50s. But here at the shop we aren't complaining because we needed the water bad. With all the melt off and rain, every river across the state got a much needed bump in flows. The fish have been loving it as well which makes catching fish a little easier with some color and higher water level opening up some secondary fishing lies which have been too low to fish for a while. The bump in flows...

Steelhead / Brown Trout Fishing Report  Steelhead around Grand Rapids has been a little slower due to water levels being very low in almost all of our rivers. We have found a few fish around Grand Rapids in the tribs, for the most part it's been an all nymph bite. Size 8-12 nymphs have been getting the only bites of the day, the flies we have been using in my boat are (Hex nymphs, Krilla, and Stoneflies). Yesterday we had fish take on size 10 Stones. As you travel further north the fishing has been a little better, with the...

Well where did all the snow go? In true Michigan style it went from 2 feet of snow to 40 and raining, which isn't the worst thing in the world due to the low water levels across the state. I was up north all weekend poking around steelhead rivers swinging and indy fishing with no great luck, it was tough all weekend with the blue bird skies paired with 50 degree temps, it wasn't the best idea I have ever had. I will say the fish are there, with good bumps happening every so often along with 2 steelhead just unhooking...

We are in the midst of a pandemic! The Midwest Fly Fishing Expo in Warren this weekend has been cancelled, and the same goes for the Ultimate Sport Show in GR next week. For now, both shops will remain open. It seems to us that fly tying and fishing are fairly legitimate forms of social distancing. Please keep your local shop in mind in the coming weeks. Remember that most of our inventory is on our website and we SHIP FOR FREE. If you cant find it on our website and would like it shipped to your house, give us a...
