Debacle on the Au Sable
The river is ours to share, the Mason Tract deeded to the state for all to enjoy for its beauty and serenity, we need to find common ground and not further the reputation of fly fishing as being an exclusive sport.

What is Conservation?
Although I understand the delicate balance of keeping the peace with the constituents of the state who should be purchasing licenses, the obvious fact is that we are no longer stocking these same rivers the way the DNR did back in the eighties. Yet, today we seem to treat them as a ‘put and take’ [ READ MORE... ]

Tree Trimming Party~
Our passion for rivers is one in the same, conservation of it's natural beauty is the reason we are on this river.

Steelhead Skies
Coffee in hand, steaming a steady plume in the air as I met my Guide for the day behind his house on the river. His boat was ready, somewhat crude, and definitely well conditioned.

Jupiter Rising~
We have reached the outer limit. The towers of technology apparently can't bounce a signal to me as we shove off into the dark onyx lake. This is what we live for. The depth and mysteries of this lake are as shrouded as our future. We are unplugged. Slicing across the lake and swinging bead-head [ READ MORE... ]

Doing my part for 'Conversation'.
A few beer cans, water bottles, the usual suspects. I really do have my eyes peeled for the elusive lost sandal or perhaps a cooler that was swirled away after a canoe took a flip. No such luck.
