Our guide service can control many aspects of the fishing trip: clean watercraft, expert knowledge of the rivers and fish, respectful attitudes, and the best gear obtainable. Two things that cannot be controlled, however, are fish bite and weather. Understand our guide philosophy before booking a trip.
Elk Body Hair
This is true premium elk hair soft tanned natural material. Many uses such as the famous elk hair caddis. Soft tanned and very clean.
Emu feathers make a very buggy addition for streamers, nymph legs, collars, hex flies, and stone flies.
Estaz materials used to wind like wet fly hackle. Very popular material for egg flies as well.
Great for low-light conditions. It glows!

Unfortunately, we cannot control the weather or the fish bite.
Early Kings and Salmon Snake Tube Flies by Gary Melzer
Typically when we think of salmon fishing, we're looking into September, but some of the best and most exciting times can be in mid to late August. If you do fish for salmon on the river this time of year, you have to realize it is very unpredictable, that is to say that they may or may not be there. One day you may see a large pod of fish and the next, very few.
Easy Ice Dub Alevin by Jim Haeck
Jim Haeck stopped in the fly shop to tell me how great Ice Dub is for tying alevin patterns, a steelhead favorite in the spring. We decided to put together a step-by-step pattern so that you can tie them at home.

Big fish take precedence during the fall in northern Michigan, but don't forget about trout fishing.
