Esox Lucius Picture and Video

As we move from summer into fall this is one of the prime bite periods for the Esox Lucius, other wise known as Pike.  River Pike become active as water temps start to drop in the late summer, and really feed aggressively on baitfish patterns.  Especially top water flies, with baitfish profiles.  Here is a Northern Pike we found this week. Also below is an impressive video by Austin Green.  It’s 25 mins long, but well worth the watch.  If you don’t follow Austin on the social feeds, I would suggest finding him and watching his work, he does some amazing things with the lens.

Man vs Bugs

So guiding here in Northern Michigan we have our share of bugs.  Especially bugs that like to bite.  But this short video showing some of the bugs (especially the ones that bite), the boys encountered on their South America journey.  I’m not sure I’m Man enough to handle.

Not a Fly-Fishing Video

This isn’t a fly fishing video but has some great lessons about life and shares some of my simple beliefs about fishing.  Plus shows off one of my favorite fish.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Turtle and Eagle Food

Just a few miles from my house in Northern Michigan their is an eagle cam.  I had never thought of turtle being a food source for Eagles.  But when you have the pressure of feeding 2 kids, I guess you feed them what you can find.  Turtle ends up escaping the nest, but had to be a long ways to find ground.

Not sure I’m man enough for the skin eating parasite .  But some amazing footage.
