  1. We all were having such a nice time, nobody thought to pull out a camera! Thanks to everyone who came out.
  2. Looking forward to it. Remember, for members, pizza is on us!
  3. Jim Crowley will be the featured speaker. I’m not sure who the conservation speaker will be yet.
  4. All of the outdoor shows happen after the first of the year. This one, is earlier than all the others, so.......it’s The Early Show.
  5. Robert Thompson is an Emmy awarding winning producer currently living and working in Chicago, IL. A former Michigander, Thompson grew up in the north east part of the state as an avid fisherman and found his way to a fly rod in 2004. Fly fishing soon became an obsession and in 2009, he combined his background in film & television and his love for fly fishing to create fly fishing documentaries. His first film Night of the Hex was released in 2010, followed closely by Musky County in 2011, Heart of the Driftless in 2012, The River in 2014, Spey Daze in 2017 and latest release Summer Haze in 2019. All of his films are set in the Midwest and parts of four have been featured in the Fly Fishing Film Tour. Robert Thompson will talk about his experience filming around some of the best locations in the Midwest. Dennis Potter owner of Riverhouse Fly Co. has patterns in the Umpqua catalog. His tying theater will be at the show & he will demo his unique patterns.
  6. 8 of us made it to Tom Loo's Thai Garden for excellent food and friendly conversation.
  7. I’m so glad that even though the fishing was less than stellar, everyone had a good time and so many have already signed up for next years Road Trip already.
  8. The second week of the Road Trip proved to be the toughest week of fishing on the Menominee River that any of us have ever seen. I floated a section 50 miles north of the cabin, a flowage 30 miles north of the cabin with guide Mike Mladenik, and the 6 mile section that the cabin is on. It seems the entire river had just shut down. Everybody got something, and for the most part, the average size for most fish was 16-17 inches, but even with low numbers of fish, we all had a great time. Next year's trip is filling fast and we are already over 70% sold. If you want to get in on the 2020 Road Trip, don't wait too long to make your reservation. Chris Sharas go this one from my boat Mark Kasick has a nice one while wading Guide Mike Mladenik with Dick Gronlund hold a fat smallmouth.

  13. From the last two days. Fishing has been slow. The threat of rain this morning caused everyone to get a late start. High winds made life miserable for those floating. The rain never really happened in our area, so the river hasn’t come up and is still wadeable. Tomorrow, the weather should be great, we’ll see if the fishing improves.
