We launched to a river with minimal pressure. The rifle deer season has certainly taken the main focus of the outdoors demographic away from the river. We started out the morning with a couple of chunky browns and Taylor handled them perfectly. We worked our way down to some favoured water where I lost a steelie on my first pass through. The second pass produced a very handsome football brown that Taylor played perfectly to my awaiting hands.

Fighting fish from a boat with the float gear is far removed from wade fishing. A net is manditory and putting a hot Lake Michigan Steelhead into the net solo with the 13' rod is no small feat. Today was another rung higher on the ladder. It was nice to be able to properly position the Hyde, make the proper drift, and set up on a willing player.

With the Hyde we are restricted to the top of the bottom end but nonetheless still privy to magical waters.
As luck would have it we won some and lost some.
In retrospect any time spent floating this river is always a victory for the soul.
Good friends, constant laughs, God's Country and epic chrome.
