An outdoor classroom in which you will learn how to read water and the environmental conditions as well as increase your knowledge of entomology to help you choose flies. Our location affords us with classroom names like the Pine, Manistee, Pere Marquette and Little Manistee--all places to help you learn fine tactics for taking Trout.
Spring really explodes in the forests of Northern Michigan and its going to be a good one this year. You will learn habitat, distinguishing characteristics and some fun ways to hunt for fish. We'll start you out by teaching you about the equipment and some simple knots. Our casting pond will give you a good space to learn some basic casting techniques, and from there we'll move on to some small bodies of water to cut our teeth on some panfish. Bluegills can actually teach you a lot about hooksetting, fish fighting and managing your line. They are the master, you are the student. Next on our list will be a visit to some secret spots where you'll begin moving up to rainbow trout in still water and then moving water environments. Be ready for some good food, some great fishing action and learning a lot about nature at the same time.
Salmon Fishing On the Fly:
They're big, they're scary and they are in our back yard! Learn how to find, cast to, fair hook and land these Pacific imports. If that sounds like a tall order, you are right! You will need patience, stamina, and tackle with backbone to go up against the biggest propellers to come upstream from Lake Michigan. We will make every attempt to get you to some of the lesser known areas to avoid ugly crowds and help you have a nice outdoor experience as well. Blindfolds are complimentary as we lead you to some "secret spots" for the thrill of a lifetime
Day 1: Friday evening arrival between 6-9 pm. Get acquainted and settled. Orientation for the rest of the weekend.
Day 2: After a hearty breakfast, we'll either start in our local pond for a little casting lesson. After lunch, we'll head to a nearby lake with a canoe or two for a little practice on panfish and Largemouth Bass. Keep that camera handy. After dinner, you are free to stroll around the Betsie here or simply relax around the fireplace.
Day 3: Ah, here's the final exam. After breakfast, we'll be stalking some Trout in the clear waters of the Note; we generally try not to kill fish during our workshops, so don't be dismayed at our letting them grow bigger for next time. That way you can catch 'em again.
