Picture of the Day – 15″ brown on a dry fly

Ed McCoy and I ventured down the Manistee River yesterday throwing around one of the standard early season dry flies the Medium Brown Stone (video link) .  Ed and I drummed up some nice fish on the boon dog, and then setup and zapped some smaller fish eating Hendrickson spinners.  Here is a picture of Ed holding a nice 15″ brown that could not let the stimulator go by.  Used a 15mm Canon Fish Eye lens for this photo.  Some of the most overlooked dry fly fishing of the season is early May.  No crowds and plenty of chances at decent trout.

    I just wanted to let you know that you have a great blog here. I grew up around Onekama, and have fished all of these waters on numerous occasions with my father and brother. It is awesome to see someone out on that water doing what they love to do. Very cool.

    I cannot wait to come home and get back on those rivers and warm little lakes.

    Thank you.
