First off, we hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this chaotic time. It's a very unnerving situation, with so much uncertainty ahead of us. We wish you all the best going forward, and hope everything returns to normalcy soon.  We've been getting out a fair amount, and the fishing has been good. We're going to keep it brief this time. Trout have been great. Steelhead have been fun, but certainly dwindling. Nymphing has been the best, streamers have been fantastic. Swinging for steelhead also good. Warmwater bite is turning on. Dry flies are going strong. Lots of options...

Well, things have really escalated here in Michigan. Over the past 24 hours, the government has issued a statewide lock-down, instructing people to stay at home as much as possible. As far as we can tell, you are STILL ALLOWED to go fishing. But be smart about it, don't share a boat with a buddy, and try not to stop at gas stations along the way (if you can help it). There is nothing wrong with driving to the river, and spending some time outdoors. Again, be smart about it, and take this ordeal seriously. The only way we're going...

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...

Happy New Year! Thanks for all the support last year!  Fishing has been pretty good lately, up until we got absolutely blasted with rain a few nights ago. Grand Rapids received over 2.5 inches of rain very quickly. Most of the rivers in West Michigan right now are still quite high from that storm system, but are receding and should be in better shape soon.  Looks like the month of January is going to be warmer than average. Always nice having a mild winter, since it makes steelhead fishing so much easier. Hopefully we don't have a repeat of last...

Merry Fishmas to all!  Steelhead fishing has been pretty darn good with the little warm up over the weekend. Water was about perfect, with a slight stain and a nice level. Fish were active and playful.  Mainly on bright clown eggs and hex flies.  Trout bite was good too. Stoneflies and caddis were working fine.  The rest of this week looks to be pretty chilly, but by the weekend it should warm up, and stay that way for the rest of next week. Should be good for some Christmas angling! Not much else to add on the steelhead front. Fish...
