AuSable day trip.

I spent my Saturday on the Au Sable river in Mio MI and had a great time and caught some nice fish. I generally don't fish the Au Sable, not for any good reason but I have my spots that I frequent and know the holes and the runs and that keeps me content. The urging of a friend finally won over my stubbornness and off we went.
Started off strong and was hitting good fish on Isonychia nymphs, but the day changed as they usually do and I had to switch up my game plan. Round two winner was the classic Prince Nymph tied under a small midge. Between the awesome fishing and the meeting of new friends and having some good conversations with my old friend the day was hands down my best trip in awhile.
It is just another example of letting go of your comfort zone and watching the world open up before you.
Here are a few pictures from my trip, and don't laugh, the sun was in my eyes..
