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...

Steelhead have been very good, with more fish trickling in each week. Still waiting on the big push of chrome, and it will be here soon enough. Plenty of fish around to keep us busy though, and it will remain that way for a while. Fish have been taken on stoneflies, hex, and simple caddis flies. Small pale eggs have been good too.    Trout have been steady, with plenty of solid ones mixed in. Such amazing fish! The weather looks really nice for the next week, with a couple days in the 40s. The herd should be arriving very...

The steelhead are really showing up in big numbers now. In certain areas they have started to spawn, and as more fish come inland, the spawn will really start to ramp up in the next few weeks. Our favorite time to target the steelhead is when they are staging. The prespawn season is just beginning, and goes until the first week of March or so. Seems to be a little earlier this year, but this prespawn window is very fun. There are lots of chrome fish around, and they aren't quite up on the gravel spawning yet. All the buckets...
