Friday 6-17 Red Fox ventured up to Mio, to fish the Au Sable on a bright, 85 degree day. First stop was with Bruce at the Au Sable Anglers Fly Shop. Bruce provided us with wisdom, bugs, and spotting of the car/trailer at Commins Creek take out.
Fishing buddies today were Sam and Conner, both very eager to bring their very first trout to the net. Pressure was high to make this a successful adventure.
Fishing was very slow (non existent) for the first few hours. Pressure to succeed was building… As soon as the sun was off of the water, Conner got us going with a nice 13″ brown. From that point till dark, it was all smiles and laughter with both Sam and Conner boating many more.
It is a great time to be on the water. We had a collection of different hatches, starting with Blue Wings, then Isos and Yellow Stones. It got to the point were all you needed was the right size fly and drag free drift. June is Awesome to be on Fly Fisher.
Sam and Conner are hooked. We are already planning the next adventure.
Thanks to Bruce at Au Sable Angler, for setting us off in the right direction. brucesausableangler.com
