August 9, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

“Trout were rising, splashing, slurping, and sipping on bugs that were hatching and spinning to the water on a lovely July evening in northern Michigan. In the cold, rushing water of the Au Sable River, brook trout were even slamming that green Grasshopper fly, tipped in red, which was wafting their way courtesy of my lime-green fly line.” Lynn Henning takes his son fishing with guide Sam Surre in a cedar canoe.
