Come Join Us For “The Great Escape”

We are escaping from the awful winter weather and the cabin fever!  Be sure to join us on tomorrow, Saturday, March 5, 2011.  You can come as early as 9:00 a.m. as the coffee pot will be on and we might just have some donuts.  Events of the day are as follows:

10:00 a.m. – Michigan Steelhead Fishing Presentation – John Gouker, guide and instructor for Schnmidt Outfitters

11:00 a.m. – To the river for demonstration on spey and switch rod casting – John Gouker and Jim Haeck.  Anyone wanting to try their hand at this will get a chance

Noon – Hot dogs, chips and water or soft drinks will be available at the shop.

1:00 p.m. – More switch and spey rod opportunity for anyone who didn’t get to try their hand at it earlier. 

Rest of the afternoon the Michigan guys will tie some of their steelhead flies, a few other tyers will be in the shop.

Casting pointers for anyone who wants.

Hourly drawings – must be present when your number is called

Special drawings – Full day guided steelehead trip and one nights stay at Schmidt Outfitters for two.  1/2 day guided trip for two on Taneycomo.  Do not need to be present to win these drawings….just make certain you get you name in the bucket!!!

Extra discounts on sale items as well as other special sale prices just for the day.  Our way of saying “Thank You!” for your business.

Lots of wading time for the past week and, looking at the projection for tomorrow, it will be a full day of wadeable water again tomorrow.  Can’t say a whole lot about the weather.  Last I heard, we might get some rain showers or even snow showers in the morning, but it is supposed to clear off and get into the upper 40s or possibly the low 50s.  Pretty good weather for this time of year, but certainly not as nice as we have been having it….70s?  March!?  Luck us! 

Jan - 3/3/11

On the water yesterday with Jan and Mike from Oklahoma.  Had a pretty good day….not fast and furious, but as Jim “Ugly” says….fished steady all day.  It did fish pretty steady and we caught some nice fish.  Almost all of them were caught on the primrose & pearl midge during the bright part of the day, and then the copper dun midge once some clouds started moving in.  Jan brought two 17-1/2 inch rainbows to the boat and, unfortunately, lost her biggest one of the day.  We all just kept saying what a beautiful day it was, great weather and fishing!
