NIFTy Club Trip - Gates AuSable River Lodge

NIFTy member Chuck Bagdade wrote; Au Sable River in Grayling Michigan fly fishing for trout. Couldn't have spent 5 days better than I did. Glad to be a part of something magical, even if I am ,"the young kid with all the old farts" You all are tops in my book

NIFTy Club Trip - Merrill, WI

Great time shared among 5 fly fishing buddies from Northern Illinois Fly Tiers. We VRBO'd a 5 bedroom, 3 bath house on Wisconsin River in Merrill, WI to target Smallmouth Bass with fly fishing guides from http://www.greatnorthernflyfishing.com/. We fly fished a couple trout streams too.

Tightlines Fly Fishing Co. - Youtube Sensation!

Tight Lines Fly Fishing Company 
If you have visited an Outdoor or Fly Fishing show in the Midwest, surfed the web for fly gear or YouTube on how to cast a fly rod, tie a knot or fly - you more than likely came across Tightlines Fly Fishing Company. Tim Landwehr owns and operates Tightlines Fly Fishing Co. in DePere, Wisconsin. It is the largest fly fishing shop in Northeast Wisconsin. I have seen Tim at numerous shows and like everything he offers to the sport of fly fishing. I discovered Tightlines Fly Shop on YouTube back in 2006 and have been following them since. Since he started on YouTube, they have over 4,000,000 views and 18,000 subscribers!
