After a hiatus of several years, the Blue Angels were once again shaking the windows of downtown merchants and wowing the crowds last weekend in Traverse City, Michigan. Their show was a hit and drew a crowd of what experts estimate was nearly 500,000! Here a just a few shots that Jackie Andres took while we enjoyed the traditional "Pig Roast" at the Apache Trout Grill during the show. Thanks to Jackie for the photos and to Mike Connors and Sheila Connors for a great day.
The Hex (hexagenia limbata) hatch is in full swing right now and is occurring on most northern Michigan rivers including the Boardman, Upper Manistee, and others nearby. Large brown trout are the target for most anglers as the hatch intensifies. Ben Brown and Thane Herbert scored a couple of 20+ inch brutes last night. Good going guys!
Here are a couple of the five brown trout in excess of 20 inches that Dan Miller caught with guide, Craig Feibing this week on the Upper Manistee River during the fabled "Hex" hatch. Big flies... big trout... big fun!
THE HEX HATCH IS ON! Hexagenia limbata #4 are finally emerging in the Upper Manistee and Boardman Rivers. Emergences and spinnerfalls are occurring from 10p-midnight, so don't forget your flashlight. These emergences will occur in areas where silt beds where these burrowing nymphs are found.
