“Mean spirited individuals with $2,000 fly rods”

The battle to protect fly fishing ‘Holy Waters’ drags on in Michigan.

A group of fly fishermen is continuing their lengthy fight to try and prevent a fish hatchery along the Au Sable River from dramatically expanding its operation, which the anglers consider a serious threat to the health of this historic trout stream.

The battle had its start almost five years ago, when Dan Vogler received a permit to expand the more than 100-year-old state fish hatchery here, and send significantly more pollutants into the waterway, which is an officially designated Blue Ribbon Trout Stream.
