Even though it is winter, come inside and indulge your fly angling mind with a thought provoking journey and clinic into the mind of trout, salmon and steelhead behavior, tactics and 'cracking the code' for success!, all brought to you by proprietor Ethan Winchester of Boyne Outfitters and special guest Matthew Supinski.
