    Default THE CABIN ON THE RIVER - Readers cast (Tom Deschaine) - Oct 24, 2011

    THE CABIN ON THE RIVER


    Back in 1984 a close friend of mine, by the name of Tim Corbin, invited me to go trout fishing at his cabin on the Au Sable River in Grayling, Michigan. I had already fished Michigan waters for over 20 years having fished for everything in the state accept for sturgeon and trout, so I decided to give it a try. Knowing nothing about trout fishing Tim suggested that I purchase a 'starter' outfit from L.L. Bean. So, for about $100 I got an outfit which included an 8', 5 wt., medium action rod with a reel, double taper floating line, a couple of leaders and the L.L. Bean Fly-Fishing Handbook, written by Dave Whitlock. How could I go wrong!
