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...

Based on the calendar, The Spring run is "here". But in general, we are still waiting on the big pulse of chrome fish. Most of the rivers have plenty of steelhead, but mainly just the holdovers from the fall. We are banking on the upcoming rain this week, paired with the warm weather to draw in more fish from the lake. The forecast is absurdly warm, so that will only help things along.  Not to say there are no chrome fish around, there certainly are. But from what we've heard, most rivers are still lacking the big spring push everyone so...

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...

High cold dirty water continue to plague us this season. It's making things quite difficult, but some days have been really solid. Couple people we have talked to had some really good days last weekend. There are fish out there, but you really have to work for them. Not only are the fish pretty lethargic most days, but getting flies down to their level, and convincing them to eat has been a challenge in it's own right. Most people we talk to have said the same thing all across the state.  The past few days have been quite cold, with...
