- Couple new reports the past few days on the Manistee River and both Ed McCoy and myself had a chance to get out. Water is still not that clean, so making fishing still a little more difficult than we like, but some nice fish are around.
- 2016 Winter Project is to expand the Fly Patterns Page, so far have added the Triple Double and Mad Pup. Look for this page to grow over the winter, as Ed McCoy, Russ Maddin, Chuck, and myself sit down and tie patterns that we can share.
- Speaking of new Patterns the Flash Monkey is coming soon to Mangled Flies VOD page. The Flash Monkey is a Russ Maddin pattern that has been a work in progress for the past 2 years. This pattern has caught all the major predators pike, trout, salmon, and steelhead.
