This is THE Great Lakes event to be at. The knowledge shared is incredible. If you fish the Muskegon River, you don't want to miss what Kevin has to say.

I have received a few PMs asking if I will bring NextCast lines.
The answer is YES!
I will have an assortment of lines available for test casting.
I plan to be at the park Thursday thru Sunday.
Look me up for the green line hook-up.

Just got home from the spey fest. Thanks to Great Lakes Fly Fishing Co. for another great program and the opportunity to show some of my bamboo rods. Thanks to all of those who stopped by the table to look at the rods or just to say Hi.

The programs were again outstanding.
