We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Michigan, fishing the “Fab Five“. We also had a great time with family camping at Holland Beach and at Hartwick Pines State Campground. The “Trout Town” of Grayling was a treat from awesome fly shops like the Old Au Sable Fly Shop to great food at Spikes Keg O’Nails and Goodale Bakery.
Fishing the 4 TU Top 100 streams, theAu Sable, Manistee, Little Manistee and Pere Marquette as well as the Pine was a real treat. We caught (and released of course) dozens of little brookies and a handful of really nice sized browns. While we missed the “hex hatch”, we fished dries and twitched/stripped streamers to lure the fish to our nets.
Please enjoy this tribute to our time in “Pure Michigan”. We’re now rambling on to points West.
