Just got back from 2 weeks on the Au Sable so thought I'd share some pics. Fishing was tough this year, caught some nice fish but really worked hard for them. Some days were 6 hours just for one decent fish. Mixed it up with lots of bass, pike and other species this year. I have tons of pics so I'll keep posting them here over  the next few days as I get them resized and uploaded.

Some pics from fish that bite back. Chased some pike on the fly in the evenings. Last pic is the tandem streamer they attacked hard, or whats left of it.

Looks like you had a good time.  Beautiful scenery and nice fish.  Who is the skinny guy in the pictures? ;)

In my opinion, any smallmouth bass on the fly is more than a "decent" fish. It is the pound for pound gamest fish in freshwater after all.

Yep agree, even a 12" one fights like a champ!

After close examination of the picture, it looks like Elvis is up the creek without a paddle. ^_^ Thanks for sharing the pictures- they are really great looking!

 

Big sexy???? :huh: Oh, c'mon.
