Steelhead have started to move into the area tribs from Lake Michigan the last couple weeks, and I decided to give it a try.  I live a couple miles from Trail Creek so I drove down there after practice a couple days ago.  Fishing Trail Creek is like fishing a small mountain stream for little […]

A couple days ago, there was a really quiet calm morning.  There was virtually no wind and it was pretty warm.  So we went to a little lake with the fly rods.  We started off casting clousers over weedbeds for some bass or crappie for awhile. When that didn’t produce anything we moved in closer […]

Recently I took it upon myself to teach a couple of my neighbors how to fly fish.  They bought a fly rod a while ago and asked me to teach them how to cast.  It is really hard to teach people to do this stuff, especially when you aren’t in control of the rod and […]

I have tied up some foam frogs recently and over the winter and I couldn’t wait to try them out.
  I finally got an oppurtunity to today.  Last week my dad uncovered our pool, which I use as a test tank to see how flies look in the water.  So I got out my bass rod and tied […]

[3 May 2009 | Comments Off on First Time Out | ]

I finally got out to do some fishing today.  My dad, uncle, and I went to a local lake to see if the crappies were in yet.  I was fly fishing they were fishing with minnows.  I really didn’t have high expectations for catching anything I just wanted to get out.  I was caasting for […]
