'Twas a Chrome Christmas

          We got up to Glen Arbor in Northern Michigan (just north of Traverse City) for the holidays with my family. There are many small creeks and tribs off of Lake Michigan in this area, and you know what that means in late December.... STEEL! I've been fishing this area ever since I can remember and even started fly fishing on one of these streams. I've heard all of the rumors and even seen some pictures of steelhead coming into these off-the-grid creeks, but have never been there this time of year. So we chased some steel amongst the vacation activities.

Join us in Belize!

How would you like to experience world-class saltwater fly fishing, amazing accommodations on the ocean, breathtaking turquoise water, incredible guides and some of the friendliest people you would ever hope to meet?  Well...if it sounds like your kind of trip, then join my wife and I as we go back to Belize this coming September, 2016!

I have been fortunate to travel to many exotic locations to chase awesome fish and this trip was by far the finest saltwater adventure I have ever taken, and it was one of the cheapest! The US Dollar is a tremendous value in Central America so it was just the best of all worlds. I will post several blogs about the adventure and some photos. Please give us a call for details on this trip. From beginner angler to expert fly caster, it is a perfect location to relax, unwind, and fish! And by the way, its less than three hours from Atlanta, Georgia. Easy to get to, affordable, and as picturesque as we have ever seen.  See you in Belize!

Shags Run Hunting Pics

     I headed down to Shags today for my day off to hunt alone with Rye. We did pretty well. We killed  about 8 birds and missed a few more. My shooting was less than impressive today. Once the birds hit the wind on the ridges, the birds got moving fast. The Tennnessee Reds are always fast anyways.

    Billy has me hunting in style these days. he picked this toy up a few months ago. It has made a huge difference in transporting dogs and hunters around the farm.

It's Musky Time...

          Nick and I got out yesterday to chase some musky around. With the rain this area has had in the last little bit, the streams were off color and murky. We still went and had a blast.
