Mid July in Ohio has many anglers heading for greener pastures so to speak.  Alaska, Montana, and Canada have anglers traveling the continent in search of angling memories.  Closer to the home front PA trout fishing has been good and local bass fishing has been just ok but should get very good now that the rains have subsided and the heat is upon us. In the meantime i hope your summer has been a good one and remember to support your local fly shop.  Also a few pics below for the slow times at the office.

One of the original and still one of the best shop employees Danny Frank from US school and Chagrin with a giant CO. Brown.

Brett poses with a nice Baby Tarpon from our March 2014 hosted trip destination.  He also managed both permit and bonefish the same day giving him a coveted grand slam. 

We have been doing some recon for future angling destinations recently, one of which is the UP of Michigan.  The fishing was great but maybe not as good as the spectacular sunsets.
On the local front white bass have been hounding shiners along the lake shore making for some fast and furious fly rod action in the evenings.
If you like brook trout fishing you owe it to yourself to give the UP of Michigan a try.

CRO hosted trips include the bahamas in December and Pesca Maya in March 2014.  For more info call Pete at the shop 440 247 7110.  

Buster brown from a July float trip over the border in PA.  Plenty of water should make for good terrestrial(ants, beetles, etc) in July.

Rain, Rain, and more Rain usually means good fall river conditions. 

Justin has been harassing the striped bass on the New England flats of late and is anxiously waiting the arrival of albacore and bonito.

Fabian has been honing his skills in Alaska this summer which will make him even deadlier on the steelhead rivers this Fall.
