I was just giving a copy of a new book called “Rivers of Sand” by Josh Greenberg. And I can’t wait to start reading this. Pick up your copy at your Local Fly Shop. If your local fly shop doesn’t have it contact Josh Greenberg at Gates AuSable Lodge, he will send you a copy.
Looks to be a great book that will help the reader understand the unique techniques needed to fish the waters of Michigan. I look forward the read over the summer months. Thank you Josh for giving Michigan some national coverage. Some of the most alluring waters in America.

Cool blues on the cheek of this dry fly eating Michigan Brown Trout. Put down the streamer rods and broke out the Scott G2 once again to capture this resectable 16″+ Hendrickson sipper. Also every day more and more impressed with the SA GPX Sharkwave taper. Day in and day out putting it in new clients hand this line is amazing.
It’s May 8th and dry fly trout season has been off to a slower than normal start, but the limited days of dry fly fishing that I have in the Sharkwave Trout GPX has been in my boat and customers are loving it. With Hendrickson’s popping, image below was captured this week on the Pere Marquette, and Black Caddis just around the corner time to go #liveanddiebythebigdryfly
Three textures, three colors, one awesome line. The SharkWave is the world’s first triple-textured fly line. Available now in GPX, Ultimate Trout, and Saltwater tapers.

Thank you Erik Rambo for all your work. Very fun project to be a part of.
Had to get down and dirty on the Upper Manistee, with a slower than normal couple days of trout fishing. Had to bust out all the tricks. Have honestly not thrown the worm, the san juan worm, since my Colorado days some 15 years ago. Used to fish the worm on the Upper Colorado River on my days off.
Sometimes it is better to be lucky , had the camera at ready for some reason at the right time for this jumping brown trout. Love the spraying water effect. Feel free to click on the photo and you will go to my Smug Mug page as well, to see a larger size.
