On The Way Back From Spey Nation.....

On the way back home from the Spey Nation III event, I got an invite from Rick Kustich to spend a few hours with him on the upper Niagara River near Grand Island, NY. Rick is a Scott Rod Pro and best known for his books and work in the steelhead arena. He is also a die-hard warm-water fly fisher and has a particular fondness for over-sized smallmouth bass and an obsession for chasing musky with a fly rod.

Here Rick shows a healthy Niagara bronzeback that ate one his favorite Deep Minnow colors- shad with red eyes. Fished behind a 300 gr. Steamer Express line, this pattern accounted for a number of large river fish this evening.
