 Well Fall is here and in full swing... From the temp drop, leaves changing colors, and oh ya Kings, Coho, and Steelhead are in hot and heavy! With the lack of water across the state it's been tough trying to fight the low gin clear water.  The name of the game right now is huge attractor patterns or tiny subtle patterns to get bites, whether that be blob eggs to size 8 McFly foam eggs but for the most part the key is fishing lighter line such as 10 lb. to get bites more often.  The rigs my clients and myself...

Well happy Tuesday everyone, I hope everyone had a safe and happy fourth of July. With it now being almost the middle July we say goodbye to our big bug season of hatches, but don't be sad we now move into some fun mid day dry fly fishing... the famous terrestrial season is hot and heavy. So grab those hoppers and stimulators, head to the river find some thick nasty log jams and start casting! With the mid days being so bright from the sun those fish are tucked into the nasty thick jams and over hanging trees to give...

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...
