Muskegon River - Nov. 8, 2012

Gary w/ a zero to sixty slam
Gary picked up a spey rod for the first time today and was quick to get in the rhythm.  After a bit of practice he was laying out nice casts.  A bit into the day and this buck gave his fly some big attitude.  One of the strikes that you don't have to ask if you got hit.  By the time he said "there's a fish" there was about 100 yards of line off the reel.  Nice job Gary.

Muskegon River - Nov. 7, 2012

David w/ his first fall steelhead on the swing!
Had  a great time on the river w/ John and David.  While fishing has been tough for steelhead the two pushed through and after a few tugs connected with a zinger.  David managed to keep his composure and put it in the net.  After lunch we put down the spey rods and fished for trout the remainder of the day.  Caught no real monsters but did catch quite a few trout.  What a great fall day.
