Christmas 2013 on the Pere Marquette.

Hey guys, long time no write! Did a couple of days on the river back on the twenty first and twenty second of November and then took off for a little over a week to visit an old Army buddy, been living vicariously thru friends for the most part since my return last week…

Tim’s first ever Steelhead on November 21st was a great one!

My birthday was the 22nd so a few of us went to Barski the night of the 21st for an early celebration. Good times were had by all…

Thanks for dinner guys!

Had some other shots at nice fish, then eventually got this one to hand avoiding the birthday skunk on the 22nd!

Combined my birthday dinner with an early Thanksgiving and had a blast with family and friends that night.

She is getting so big!

Went down for a little over a week and had a great time with my old buddy in his neck of the woods for some hunting therapy, but conditions were not optimal and the deer did not move anything like last year. Did wind up with some freezer meat and passed on one smaller buck while down there. Meet some great new friends and I’m looking forward to next year’s adventure…

Some of my views.

Got back late on Wednesday night last week, spent Thursday recovering from vacation and then hit the water with John and James on Friday. John set the bar high hitting one on the swing at our second stop, but not much action for us after that. Probably should have fished more, but the beer, elk steaks and company were to good!

See the Steelhead photos in John’s report! Sorry about the picture quality, only had my phone with a bad cover...

Other than that I’ve been busy trying to organize some things I’ve been putting off for some time and making progress, but no fishing to speak of. We have lots of opening for guide trips right now (Both full and half days!) and the fishing is good. Give us a call, it’s a great time to be on the water…

Also and FYI! We are still looking for a couple of bodies to join us in Argentina, we had a group that had to cancel for Argentina in January and we now have up to 4 spots open for this trip of a lifetime! (Could possibly add two to that number, but would need to know soon!) At the moment it is Just John and I along with two of our better friends/clients going and we are not canceling the trip. Plan to do it very much like last year and have a blast, hope that we can add a couple more to the mix… See below for some of the details. (We still have plenty of room in our first week of August in Alaska as well.)

Happy Holidays from all of us at BBT!

Tight lines all,

Don’t forget to stop in Barski’s for some off the hook chow and say hi to my buddy Steve for me when in the greater Baldwin area!

Our guides and the Motel still have some prime openings and the shop is full of inventory, so please stop by or give us a call. We are happy to answer any questions, provide updated river reports and help you with reservations.
