Opening Day-it's all about traditions here in the Upper Peninsula. This a day of the fishing calendar I clear the slate every year to enjoy the surrounding of this great place I call home. As an angler it isn't about catching fish to me, it's about spending time with friends & relaxing. If we make it astream that's wonderful, if not-who cares. Many people in this day of age are always in a rush, it's not worth even going fishing if you are in a hurry to get out. Trout fishing, especially here in the North Woods is all about kicking back and soaking in the environs. This weekends heritage in the U.P. runs so strong that words really cannot explain it, since Trout have been here anglers have celebrated this holy day. Trout only live in the most beautiful places on Earth, these are the places I like to spend my time.
