Michigan is one of the best states in the nation for flyfishing, and Jon Osborn’s all-new Flyfisher’s Guide to Michigan details the outstanding fishing opportunities like no other guidebook on the market. The author covers the hot spots and lesser known fisheries with personal experiences, historical overviews, effective techniques for both warmwater and coldwater species and resident and anadromous species, stocking data, appropriate gear and flies, access points, nearby fly shops, approximate float times and much more. Photographer Hunter Brumels provides the visuals that paint the full picture of the fishing in this incredible state. With bonus coverage of nearby watering holes, anglers will have everything they need for many memorable days. From mainstays like the Au Sable, Pere Marquette, Muskegon and Manistee rivers to hidden gems like the Rabbit and Red Cedar rivers, Osborn has put in the river-time so that you can get down to business. Many more forks and tributaries are covered, including trout, steelhead, salmon, bass and pike fisheries.
This book comes standard with Wilderness Adventures Press’ precise and detailed full-color maps, with GPS coordinates for all access points, boat ramps, and parking areas, along with access roads, public land and more. As Lefty once said: “If someone can’t find locations from these maps – they need to stay home.” Whether you’re a veteran fly angler or new to the sport, get an edge with this all-new guidebook.

A close-knit circle of artists, educators, rod-makers, guides, and writers rank among his closest pals. No one is more grateful or amazed by all this than he is.
