What a time it is to get on the open rivers and throw out two handed style. Well with the popularity growing fast it was no time before the swinging on top for them magical beast would occur. Behold the SKA-UGLER. Can be swung for steelhead, trout in general and could be popped on shore to attract Mr. Bass. Don’t delay I only tie a hand full at a time.  

Fishing Reports

North Shore: Rivers are doing very good. A lot of high water and muddy color, but the steelhead are being caught. Some Loopers are around as well. Pick and choose your rivers and spots carefully. Use egg patterns of various colors. Some stones are working on a few nice rivers.   
Bois Brule Wi. BLOWN OUT, but slow pockets and runs are producing nice steelhead.  
Up the Shore: Water is high, but fish are being caught in slow pockets and runs. Small nymphs!
