He has been at this for some time now and has learned many tricks and tactics for catching muskie with the fly rod.

Free time!

I had some down time at the shop recently, so I ran out behind the shop with a bugger and managed to get a few small ones. They had some really great colors.

Did some guide trips  end of last week and into the weekend. The weather didn't want to cooperate but the fish sure did. Moved two of the biggest fish I have seen in trout streams in WI. Here's a few photos.

Fishing has been pretty good lately on area streams. Warm sunny days have the caddis moving and fish are on them. White buggers presented downstream is taking fish also. Stop by or call the shop if you want to book a guided day of fishing.

Had a few guys out on Monday of this week. The day started off a little chilly but the fish were still willing to eat. With water temps still being so cold fish weren't moving a big distance to eat and were usually sitting in the slower tailouts of riffles. By the afternoon midges were everywhere but we only saw 1 fish rise! Most of these fish ate the pink squirrel and a couple ate a green copper john pattern.

Most of the fish have been subsurface with nymph patterns pink squirrels, scuds, etc....Small buggers with a across and down presentations have taken plenty of fish lately. No real monsters yet but some nice fish have come to hand.

Badger Spring Opener

Yesterday was the Badger fly fishers Spring Opener. On The Creek had a booth and had lots of fimiliar faces and plenty of new faces stop by and say hi. It is always a good day when you get plenty of like minded folks together to talk all things fishing. The best of the day for me is reconnecting with guys I haven't seen in a while and sharing some good laughs over the adventures and misadventures of the pass seasons. Thanks to all who stopped by and we will see you On The Creek soon enough.
