Dad and I took a long weekend to kick off the upland season with trip to northern Michigan for grouse. We flushed grouse and woodcock every day and even though we all got some shots, we finished the trip empty handed. I can say I probably learned more about grouse hunting this trip than ever before.

While I was in Montana, my group did a lot of nymph fishing which gave us the opportunity to fish many different rods. The guides and I all came equipped with specialty nymphing rods. These rods are generally 9'6" or longer. 10' and 11' are standard for this type of fishing. Most of my group had never used these longer rods before, but by the end of trip they were true believers.

Nick and I got out to Brookville a couple nights ago and camped. We fished all throughout the night, slept for a couple hours, and fished the morning. The water was low-- 2.7 ft. Weather was rainy and cold, but the fish came out. I set a new record for myself and hooked into a true beast. It was a 27 inch brown trout that had crazy girth. It made it even more cool that it was at midnight.

Got out today and fished a fairly local river that is said to hold a very healthy population of musky. Didn't catch any musky, but the water looked like their perfect habitat. This also gave us a chance to get the drift boat out before we head up to the Au Sable in a few weeks and fish trout.
