couldn't resist, made my way to the the upper manistee for an afternoon session in the extended season area. gorgeous. shared the whole with one other angler. not much happening yet, but enough to hold your interest. a few fat hendrickson duns, the odd caddis, and a sprinkle of baetis spinners. finaly managed a good looking brown of medium length. the 3wt felt as a feather after a season of heavier gear.
i'm sure the scene there is much differant today being the regular season opener state wide. not to worry though, the madness will be short lived & the trout will be that much the wiser....... SG
