Water levels are up and fishing will become slightly tougher. Be sure to take your time and check your footing.  Good luck and tight lines, fly anglers!
Rain over the U.P. lately, but the fish are still active. We had a good weekend with people catching fish. Don't spend too much time in one spot. Find those feeding fish and keep moving. It won't be long before it's tying season and a long, cold Winter. Get out there and tight lines, fly anglers!
Thankful for family, friends and football today... BUT we're always thankful for gorgeous, solid chrome! Tight lines and Happy Holidays fly anglers!
“Turkey. Stuffing. A fly fisherman craves not these things.” 

Have a safe, fun and full holiday weekend, fly anglers!

I'll be visiting family and watching the Lions game. But not before this...
Hard work pays off. Cold, wind, leaky waders won't stop us. I hope you all get out before our wonderful Winter sets in.  Happy Thanksgiving to all you fly anglers out there following us!  Stay safe. Be careful on the roads and in the water. Eat. Be happy and have a great time with your friends or loved ones. Tight lines (and waist bands).
A solid 7 pound buck. A pure, naturally reproducing fish. Always practice catch and release, guys and gals.
Wind, blizzard conditions, cold, frozen guides, frost bite, these things do not slow down the relentless fly fisherman.  

Another beautiful, Upper Peninsula day on the big river. 12 fish. 6 lake run browns, 6 steelhead in this last outing. An insane snow storm did not foil my day.  Mending was tough in the windstorm as well. Did any of you die-hards get out this weekend?  I hope so! It'll be Winter before you know it. Tight lines, fly anglers!
I can't think of a better season, than Fall fly fishing. The cool, Upper Peninsula air breathing in my nose. I enjoy the smell of Autumn and the sounds of swift moving water. Of course, landing large salmonids with clients and friends is unbeatable, too. 

Remember guys and gals, practice catch and release. Also, stay safe out there. Watch your water levels and don't travel alone.

Tight lines!
Welcome to Brown Town!  Thanks, Brodin Landing Nets!  Always there when we need them!
One year ago, I landed this gorgeous, perfect coaster. Every time I see this photo, I go right back to that moment.  Get out there and take advantage of this beautiful, Fall season folks!

Tight lines to all of you! Stay safe and enjoy the best season in God's country!
It was a wonderful weekend. Casting class on Saturday AM went extremely well. I met some wonderful people and had an amazing time. Had a cancelled client, so I got to spend a few hours in the water. Temps are dropping along with the high water levels. Please use caution and leave spawning fish be. 

If you see anyone snagging fish, keeping fouled fish, please contact your local DNR.  Every Fall season, I see many people from WI and MN snagging fish and keeping every, single one. Our DNR are spread thin, so they do not always catch these people. Now, just for the record not everyone from WI I see snags fish, but about 95% of them do. They use a VERY heavy mono on a fly reel and a thick fly rod.  Then, they use a large pencil shaped weight and one to two LARGE
I wanted to touch further on yesterday's post. Here is a correct way of fighting a larger fish. I realize this is not a large lake-run fish in the photo, but you get the idea.

A. The fish is almost directly perpendicular to the angler in the current. The line is coming down to the fish.

B. The rod tip is high and gives your rod the blunt of the work. If you look between B and A, there is no obstruction or water causing extra tension. I understand that you will not always have this easy of a battle. That's obvious. But, when you work towards this form, you will increase your success of landing these fish. You will be pleased with your outcome more often than not.

C. The angler is facing the fish. His hands are up. The rod is best at a good angle. It's not over-bent or too stressed. Here, the angler can move his hands toward the fish, if it decides to burst ahead. When you are in this stance and posture, the rod and the drag will do the rest. Also, note how the angler is facing the fish and keeping his line free from his feet and from catching on anything around him.

D. In a perfect world, you will want to net this fish here. Slightly downstream is the easiest place to land larger fish. Trying to bring a sizable salmonid AGAINST the current is often futile. These giant fish will use their weight and the current against you to free themselves. 

You also never want to try and horse any fish. By that, I mean, never try to use force too hard to bring him to your net. Take your time with constant pressure and slowly guide him to you, when possible.  When netting a fish (either alone or with a friend) SLOWLY bring the fish up in the water column. DO NOT jerk the rod upwards or pull the fish forcefully up. Slow and steady wins this race.
