A Much Needed Fly Fishing Retreat...

Over the past 11 days Mike Schultz and I hosted 3 groups of anglers up to our Brook Trout Retreat for a little fly fishing R&R. The bugs were popping everyday, the guys were awesome, and the fishing was good! We look forward to seeing you all again in the near future! Here a a few of the photos, I think they will tell the story better than I can!   
The scenery was spectacular, as we walked the stream searching for a rise.
Everyone enjoyed the Michigan Micro Brew.

Beers, brats, and dogs met each group upon there arrival to the retreat. 

Wet waders, strung rods, and happy anglers = Nap Time!

A solid Brook Trout caught on a Stimulator during the Yellow Sally hatch.

We fished right up to dark, as the Rusty Spinners were everywhere, and each evening we enjoyed a nice fire and good stories to end the day!

The walk home after a good day, and we'll leave it at that!
