Fished with Matt Dunn of Fishbeer.com and JL Waters in Bloomingotn, Indiana
Indigo guide Steve Martinez and I had the pleasure of fishing with Matt Dunn form the Fishbeer.com fly fishing blog. I had meet Matt some time ago and had invited him to come up and fish whenever. Matt came up over the weekend for some fall steelheading. We fished Thursday through Sunday and had a great time, though Matt was not able to land a steelhead in the three days. Sunday was a total blank, not a fish touched by anyone. Friday and Saturday Matt was able to make contact with several steelhead but again, non ended up in the net. For all three days Matt swung and stripped large "Kelly Galloup" style streamers, most of these were in the four inch plus range. These large streamers may lead to a poor hook-up ratio, my landing ratio seems better when I stay in the three inch range for steelhead streamers.
Matt also manages the fly shop at JL Waters in Bloomington, Indiana. If you get down to Bloomington stop in and check out the shop and say hi to Matt.
Matt’s latest post on Fishbeer.com "the size of the moon" is about his Michigan steelhead trip… you can get his side of the story…
