Book Review on Reeling in Russia (Thumbs Up!)

In the summer of 1996, award-winning journalist Fen Montaigne embarked on a hundred-day, seven-thousand-mile journey across Russia. Traveling with his fly rod, he began his trek in northwestern Russia on the Solovetsky Islands, a remote archipelago that was the birthplace of Stalin's gulag. He ended half a world away as he fished for steelhead trout on the Kamchatka Peninsula, on the shores of the Pacific. 

His tales of visiting these far-flung rivers are memorable, and at heart, Reeling in Russia is far more than a story of an angling journey. It is a humorous and moving account of his adventures in the madhouse that is Russia today, and a striking portrait that highlights the humanity and tribulations of its people.

In the end, the reader is left with the memory of haunted northern landscapes, of vivid sunsets over distant rivers, of the crumbling remains of pre-Revolutionary estates, and a cast of dogged Russians struggling to build a life amid the rubble of the Communist regime.

Summer Skamania!

This video is dedicated to our beloved Summer Skamania's. Too bad the Run sucked this year for me. Oh well, the Fall is almost here and I can't wait. This is a short little Video with the one and only Matt Supinski. He is one of my Steelhead Heros, by the way read his book Steelhead Dreams.

“Hydropower Reform Can Save Rivers”

Castapalooza this weekend! Are you going?

Snagging Salmon

A message from Bryan Burroughs, Ph.D. Executive Director of Michigan Trout Unlimited…

I just received information about an upcoming meeting of concern and interest to Michigan anglers. Apparently, legislator Ray Franz is hosting a “Town Hall” meeting on September 9th at 4pm at the Norman Township hall in Wellston (on Seaman Rd., just south of m55), to explore the option of legislation to ALLOW SN...AGGING AGAIN. I heard that the focus of the meeting was supposed to generally be about “regulations and fishing on the Big Manistee”.

Apparently, his office has recently got some complaints about “over enforcement of the Tippy area”. However, a notice that went out today from his office about the meeting had it described as a meeting about allowing snagging again. I encourage you and anyone you know, to attend the meeting and voice your opinions and concerns about snagging and the regulations on the Big Manistee.

I hope everyone had a great time this past Holiday weekend. I know I sure did. We landed 17 Salmon this past weekend. My family and I will be eating good that's for sure.

I have to run to work but when I have time I will post some photos from this weekends trip. The sad part is we all have to go back to work today, right?

Try to make it a great day!


A truly amazing Teacher!

Everyone should watch this video. The next time you think about complaining about your life, someone or something? Or you think you have it bad, then think of this video. We all have a lot to be thankful for. I thank God everyday for my family, life and all he has given me.

Fish On!
