Fished a northern Michigan stream tuesday, conditions are very demanding, low, clear water, and sunshine added up to tough fishing. I managed a couple of nice browns given the conditions, I only take quick photos in the net, I really dont care about how big they are unless I get into something in the mid 20's. I was fishing a sparkle minnow pattern from the folks at flyfishfood. I might also add there were alot of people on the river and on the hiking trail that paralells the river. Thats good that folks enjoy the fall beauty.

Nice work Mike!!! Here and on that beautiful brookie in your other story. Good for you for getting out! On nice October days the fishing can be amazing - they know winter is coming and they are putting on the feed bag right now! Really pretty brownies you caught there. Geez, I can't wait to see what you catch next! Thanks for sharing.


P.S. Stories with pics coming from a fishing trip and a work trip, just gotta put them together.
No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...
