9 Year Old…. Hands Of Steel!

9 year old CJ with his first ever steelhead

Here’s 9-year-old CJ with Dad celebrating in style with his first ever steelhead.  A 29″ Muskegon River silver bullet taken with a fly rod!  If you could have only seen the cast CJ made to hook this fish!  Not to mention the fight.  CJ handled it flawlessly navigating this outstanding chrome hen out of several logjams.  I believe we have a new “Man of Steel” among us my friends.  Outstanding job CJ!  Welcome to the steelhead club!

The spring run is coming around nicely.  Fresh chrome has entered the river system.  Well needed rain in the forecast will push the steelhead in overdrive.

Special thanks to Matt Supinski, owner of the Gray Drake Lodge for hosting todays trip.
