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.

Going for trout and Mr. Steelhead showed up

Stripping streamers for trout and Mr. Steelhead wanted some.  A nice surprise for Wayne today as we fished the Pere Marquette.  Great job Wayne battling this guy on your trout gear.



Pic of the Day – San Juan Worm

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.

Bobber Down!

First Day with Scott Radian 907

Will do a little more talking about the Scott Radian 907 in the future , but just wanted to post a couple quick pics from a personal trout streamer day with Ed McCoy yesterday.  Was my first day with 907 and so glad I bought one, great rod for the Michigan trout scene.  Perfect with my 250 SA sink tip.

 Perfect streamer rod for Michigan trout streams.
