For quite some time the Manistee river in MI has been on my list of places to fly fish. Well this summer I made up my mind this would be my fall trip to some place I have not fish. Hooked up with a great guide Gary Melzer and spent a couple of days fishing with him. Weather was not the best, windy temps went from chilly to hot. Hooked up one nice salmon, did not land it. Landed a couple of nice small steal heads. Hooked up one big steel, fuaght it for quite a while it put on a great show jumping and flashing in the sun but I did not land it. Browns were great landed the largest brown I have had the privilage to tangle with. I was a great trip it was worth the drive to MI!
