What started as a way to mock their relative poverty became an important annual event for a generation of Pere Marquette fly fishers at this classic club. “Member Carl Graef, a former Texan who lives in Mount Pleasant, said he likes the weekend tradition because he ‘absolutely lives to fly-fish.’ ‘This is my way of communing with God,’ he said. ‘This is the most beautiful place I know of. It is so far removed from the stresses of my everyday work life. You look down on this river and these trees, and they call to you.'” David V. Graham in the Flint Journal.
