A recent business trip found me in Traverse City, Michigan with several inches of snow on the ground and a few minutes to kill before my flight back to the Lone Star State.  A co-worker suggested I drive a few miles down the road to check out a bit of fly tying history.   Mayfield, Michigan has a post office, convenience store, and is the birthplace of the Adam's fly.  The very same Adam's fly that has been in my fly box (and I am guessing yours as well) since the first time I attempted fly fis...

Red Wings Draft Lottery Payout: Jackpot or Jack Squat

After all, this is the most important draft in a generation. The Red Wings will pick four times in the first 36 selections, including a lottery pick where they’ll pick no lower than eighth. That top-eight pick will have a legitimate shot to play with the Red Wings next season as the team rebuilds. Detroit’s likeliest approach would be to take the be...
