We posted about Michigan Out of Doors hitting the Pere Marquette with Steve back on October 18th, 2013. I went back and found the video now that it has been posted online. Enjoy.

Michigan Out of Doors on Beaver Island

Monday, August 10th, 2015

This summer our very own Steve Martinez shot a show with Jordan Browne from Michigan Out of Doors. The show does a good job of showing what carp fishing on Beaver Island is like, with Steve doing a great job explaining just what is going on. I especially liked the shots of the clear water and very shallow fish.

Steve hit the lower river last week, just after the ice broke up. Possibly because they were one of the first boats through that stretch in months but they had an awesome day, landing many, many steelhead and a 31″ brown.

While Steve has landed many larger browns trolling in the big lake and on lures in the river, this is his personal best on a fly and better yet it came on a streamer.

Steve says the streamer was copied from a friend, Greg Senyo. The fly is called Artificial Intelligence and was in Green Goblin color. Steve says the Artificial Intelligence has become a favorite  steelhead streamer.

Steve wanted me to also pass along that he has fallen in love with the Cortland, Compact Switch saying, “It’s the only line I’ll use for swinging.”


Recap of 2012 Fly Tying Expo

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

Each year volunteers with the Great Lakes Council of the Federation of Fly Fishers work to put on a great show and this year was no exception.  Steve and I both brought cameras to the show and never took one shot, so thanks to Ian and Justin for the pics.  Sorry again Austin that you had to sleep in a bath tub.
