In this Week’s Video of the Week, we jump into the mitten state with Rick Mikesell and Ivan Orsic of Trouts Fly Fishing as they explore some warm water rivers in search of the elusive 20-inch smallmouth. With the help of Midwest fly fishing legend Mike Schultz (aka Schultzy) the boys learn how to properly trout set on a topwater bite, the different ecosystems surrounding these warm water rivers, and discuss just how old a 20-inch smallmouth could be. So sit down and enjoy as the boy’s huck poppers against log jams and game-changers under trees in search of some monster Michigan small jaws.

Trouts Fly Fishing is a premier fly shop based out of Denver and the second shop based in Frisco. From guided trips to instructional videos to repairs they’ve got you covered!
