Wow what a way to start a week... Michigan never fails to surprise us at the shop, from 60 degrees to 30 degrees with snow really makes us feel spring will never come. BUT it looks like this coming weekend is going to be a hot one in the 70s, it can only seem like the trout fishing and the tail end of the steelhead will be awesome this weekend. All trout anglers get ready whether you fish streamers, dry flies, or nymphs the fish are going to be chowing down this weekend. After being out on the water all...

Rain, Rain, Go Away! After some heavy rain and melt off in the last couple weeks that has put a big damper on fishing in Michigan but didn't ruin it. With water and flows finally on the come down it has really improved the fishing across the state. Steelhead fishing is getting very good in the last couple days, with more fish actively eating and working up the river system. Hot flies for steelhead have been bigger egg flies, such as rag eggs and nuke eggs. Do not shy away from tying up some bigger and brighter egg flies than you...

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.

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...

But from what we've heard, most rivers are still lacking the big spring push everyone so...
