Lake Erie Steelhead

Despite the typical but finicky water conditions our staff, guides and clients have been able to satisfy their urge for hooking into to numerous Erie Steelhead through the December and the first part of January. Its been a pretty mild Winter so far and this has kept a significant amount of slush and ice off the local tribs. We are already replenishing our Steelhead flies and gearing up for a busy Spring on the water. If you think you’d like to take a guided trip for these incredible fish don’t hesitate, Spring tends to fill up quick, especially when we get hints of warm weather. Keep a look out for our Early Spring Seminars and get togethers at the shop. We’ll be sharing techniques and patterns to help you increase you success on these awesome waters.

Thanks for the Christmas Email

Thanks for the Christmas e-mail.

I wanted to let you know the fishing at the Dix is still awesome. The water remains low while they still repair/upgrade a generator. Nick Regering and I went up last Tuesday December 27. The trout were crushing red and cream colored nymphs - 70+ fish between the two of us - my best day ever.

What's In Your Bag?

In My Duck Blind Bag

The two most important things in my blind bag are my duck calls and shells. I also like to carry a lightweight headlamp that allows me to keep both hands free for paddling or running the outboard motor. I usually carry a spare light or batteries. Some other things that can be found in there are a head net for face concealment, an extra pair of gloves in case the first pair get wet (which they usually do) and a small first aid kit. Depending on how long I am going to stay out, there will be some nourishment for during the hunt in the bag. If I am only going to be out for the morning, I usually pack a granola bar and a bottle of water. Ear plugs and shooting glasses are a must and usually tucked in a side pocket with my calls. Lastly, if there is room, I usually bring along my digital camera to capture some pictures in the field like the one below.

What's In Your Bag?

In My Upland Bag

Most of what I carry in my upland bag is useful for my dog. I have my electronic collar, along with beeper attached, and their plugs for recharging back at the cabin. A 30 foot lead, to use when I do not want the dog to run off before I am ready to hit the fields, I just tie him to the trailer hitch. I have a couple of brushes to get those nasty burs out of his hair, a pair of forceps to pull out any thorns or porcupine quills, and some eye drops to wash out his eyes. For my self, I carry extra gloves, ear plugs, and my shooting glasses. To care for my gun I keep a gun bore, choke tubes, and a cleaning rag. In my side pockets I have my bird sheers, extra knifes and a first aid kit for both the dog and humans. I have a couple of small tools in the back of the bag to use as needed. When going on a short trip, and if I have room, I will carry some shells in the bag as well. Those are just some tips for what is in my bag, after some time in the field you’ll find what works in yours.
