Fly Fishing for The Wild Michigan Brook Tourt

Groups audience 

Looking at the stretch of Michigan’s Jordan River I was wading, it was tough to believe it was teeming with wild brook trout.

The shallow, ultraclear flow wasn’t very wide. It was fully lit by the August sun, and there wasn’t a dark hidey-hole in sight

Downstream, my good friends Joe Demalderis and Brian Kozminski were enjoying the simplicity of the day too. We each carried a 3-weight outfit, a dozen dries, and a spool of 5X tippet. This was Kozminski’s turf, and while the Boyne City guide built his reputation on big browns, wild brook trout are his passion. Every few minutes, someone would hoot over a missed take or another beauty skating to hand. It was all very relaxing until noon.
