Heck, I almost forgot to post this at all this year and had it not been for a few “regulars” that always take full advantage of it, the announcement might have been missed this year!!! In short, have you, or anyone you know, been contemplating a new rod, reel, waders, fly line, jacket, etc. or even just want to purchase some flies, lures, terminal tackle or tippet throughout the year at a substantial discount?

As is our tradition we are still offering our “Holiday Special” of 20% Off Gift Certificates from Thanksgiving until December 24th, 2021. (These certificates are redeemable for shop merchandise and lodging, but not applicable for guide trips.) This is our way of saying thank you and, hopefully making it a bit easier for you to spend with us rather than a big box store or on-line for items we carry! (Or can order for you.)

We do phone orders if you can’t stop in and these certificates along with any other merchandise can be mailed directly to your home, business or elsewhere! Shop hours are 9am to 5pm Wednesday to Monday, closed on Tuesday right now and our phone number is: (231) 745-3529 (Please call back or leave a message if we are unable to answer. With only one employee in the shop at a time now it can be difficult to always answer immediately.)

Never got around to that river report this week, but I’ve got trips the next two days and I WILL post a new report on Monday or Tuesday… Merry Christmas everyone and a huge thank you for your support!



  1. Just thinking… do you really want to know the secret to saving these beautiful fish? Eliminate the “Grip n’ Grin”, and ” Keep em’ Wet!!!! 🙂
