"Not only does northern Michigan offer amazing access to miles of pristine blue-ribbon trout streams, but this is also the land of legends," said Ethan Winchester, Boyne Outfitters manager and head guide. "Hemingway spent his summers just up the road; Trout Unlimited was formed a few miles over on the Ausable River and Leonard Halladay created the Adams Fly down on the Boardman River. We are at the heart of it all."
Lodging guests at Boyne Mountain can also enjoy an introduction to fly fishing with complimentary instruction on Friday and Saturday evenings from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. during the summer. The fishing pond at Boyne Mountain is stocked annually with trout and all equipment is provided. Guests can learn to cast, tie knots, which fly to use, best places to fish and the history of the sport and fishing in northern Michigan. For reservations, call 231-549-6064.
Boyne Outfitters' summer hours of operation are Sunday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. For more information about Boyne Outfitters, please visit www.boyneoutfitters.com or call 231-549-6064.
