Glen Blackwood and his shop in Rockford are outstanding (Great Lakes Fly Fishing Company - Great Lakes Fly Fishing Co.
). It is a beautiful time of the year to fish in Michigan.
Wow, there's a blast from the past. Glen opened that shop in Rockford must be going on 20 years now! Is it still right of the interstate at 10 Mile Rd was it? I used to watch his T.V. show in Michigan.
I'm actually heading back next week to visit my folks, I don't know if I'll have much time to fish, but I think I'll pack a rod and my vest just in case. I might be venture up North to take my wife to Sleeping Bear and the Boardman isn't too far...
