Some pics from the past 2 weeks. Trip had ups & downs with tons...TONS of rain, and the worst part was the lower unit of my motor locking up on me on the 2nd day of the trip. You have no idea how hard it is to row a 1000lb boat against a 2.5mph current 1/2 mile until you have to do it by yourself one night So only had the boat for two days of fishing on this trip. Was bummed about that because I was gonna have Bryon come up to fish with me as well as my buddy Mark but that wasn't in the cards this year. Good thing is I have been fishing the Au Sable for over 40 yrs now so I at least know where to go for spots wading in to get nice fish with the two handed spey rod which makes longer casts from thick bankside wading easier to still get fish on the fly. Just took a lot more hours of work to get them though. Lots more pics to come later still.
First one is the big fish of the trip, a 20" smallie.
Lots more pics to come as I get a chance.
