Moved to Michigan in 1997, fortunately to an apartment right on the Huron River in Ann Arbor. I did my formative fly fishing on that lovely, unassuming water and also gained my undying affinity for smallmouth bass, which are numerous and sometimes large there. I soon made my way to a few little trout streams and learned more lessons. My fly fishing mentor-buddy eventually took me on my first trip to the Au Sable River, and that sealed the deal forever.
Fished like a maniac on the loose during my first five years here -- bought a new Blazer in 2000 and put 30K on the odometer the first year, mostly fishing miles. My kids were born in '01, and since then I have fished like a more sane man, but with no less enthusiasm. Taught myself to tie flies and build rods along the way, out of economic necessity at first, then out of love for the craft.
It's been fun and I wouldn't have had it any other way. I hope I get to keep doing it for a long time.
