Orvis 101 Free Fly-Fishing Day July 2 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm | Free

Orvis and TU have teamed up with dealers to offer FREE instruction for everyone. Mason-Griffith Founders TU volunteers (guides themselves) and MGFTU board member and Gates Lodge lead instructor Mark Hendricks are here to make fly fishing fun and accessible. No wading or waders required. This is the easiest way to get started. Please bring appropriate clothing, as well as anything you might want to drink or snack on. Bugspray and sunglasses are recommended. Class limit is 15. Class is free.



There’s something special about hooking a big trout on a dry fly after dark. There must be, judging by the number of people that desire it, dream about it, and otherwise shed all normalcy to achieve it. I’ve wondered if it would be the same in the day. I guess it would, but it would be less unique. There are plenty of places in the world to catch big fish on dry flies during the day, though many require — at least for us — a plane ride. The after dark Michigan hatches are special because they do happen in the dark, and the additional barrier somehow strengthens the sensation of the ultimate, midnight connection.

Does the after dark fishing really happen in the dark?

It's not pitch dark, there is moonlight but no artificial lights. Just you, nature and the other anglers.

Last time I tried fishing in the dark I had to pull a treble hook out of my hand with a pair of pliers.

Comins residents, visitors parade their patriotism



COMINS — Comins was filled with floats, fire trucks, flying candy and smiling faces July 4 as residents and visitors gathered to celebrate Independence Day.

It really is a simple way to live and probably a great place to raise a family. But you have got to crack up at the naiveté.

I'm not sure it's all naivete', I think there may be some of that but I also think there's a degree of "this is my life and I'm going to enjoy it the best I can". It's probably a better way to live than to go through life bitter at what you don't have.

Airport fly-in landing in Mio July 9



MIO — The Oscoda County Dennis Kauffman Memorial Airport Fly-In is slated to bring pilots, planes and pancakes to the Mio airport July 9 from 7:30-11 a.m.

Airport Manager David Kauffman said attendance at the event is always weather-dependent, but there are typically a number of pilots on scene. He said the most ever on scene for the event was around 15 airplanes.

The public is welcome to visit the airport to chat with the pilots and check out their planes. Kauffman said the pilots are usually open to answering questions from visitors with an interest in aviation.

More big Events for July 9th weekend.

Heritage Days going western in third year

COMINS TWP. — Heritage Days is expected to grow in its third year, according to fair board President Sandy Handrich, who said there will be no shortage of activities during the free two-day event.

Heritage Days is slated to be held at the Oscoda County Fairgrounds July 8-9. This year’s theme is “Heritage Days Western Style.”

The festivities kick off July 8 at noon. The first day will include a quilt sale, silent auction, goat milking, sheep shearing, Lego competition, kids games at 1 p.m., story time at 2 p.m., horse rides, a barbecue pork meal at 5 p.m. and a draft horse pull at 7 p.m.

And for the first time, a Cowboy and Cowgirl Challenge is also on the docket.

“It’s kind of like a glorified trail course set up, and there are some prizes for that,” Handrich said, noting there is no cost to participate.

To register, call Handrich at 734-788-3254.

July 9 is slated to feature a pancake breakfast at 8 a.m.; cowboy church at 9 a.m.; logging equipment on display from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; a bike rodeo at 1 p.m.; story time at 2 p.m.; a clinic to teach kids what horse judges are looking for during competitions at 4 p.m.; and free wagon rides all day. The work from the Lego competition will also be on display.

The day’s big-ticket attraction is slated to begin at 1 p.m. when the Hiser Brothers host a logging competition. It will cost $5 to enter each competition, which will include pole climbing, ax throwing and chainsaw contests. For more information or to register, call Dave Gardulski at 989-848-2581.

The bike rodeo is being hosted by the sheriff department.

Motorcycle enduros coming to Fairview this weekend



FAIRVIEW — Riders from across the Great Lakes region will descend upon Fairview this weekend for the Single-Track Off-Road Events’ Baby Bear and Grizzly enduros July 9-10.

The event kicks off Saturday with the Baby Bear Family Enduro.

“It’s very family-oriented — for the kids as well as adults that aren’t hardcore, go-fast-in-the-woods type riders,” organizer Rick Handrich said. “We have riders from 4-year-olds up to 60-plus class. Our event takes place on private property, where we have trails in the woods or fields that the motorcycles will ride.”

Riders will traverse the course established at Joel Yoder’s farm, located at 1829 N. Weaver Rd. in Fairview.

“It’s a timed event, more like a rally where you try to average a certain mile per hour over X amount of miles,” Handrich said. “As you’re riding through the trail, there are secret checkpoints along the way where you’ll come up to on your motorcycle and you’re scored based on if you’re going too fast — not averaging 12 mph — or under that. You receive penalty points if you’re going too fast or too slow. At the end of the event, you turn in a score card, and the winner is determined by who has the least amount of penalty points.”

And some Mio Fireworks shots....

How're the horse flies this summer, Loose? Some of the worst I've ever experienced in Mio.

I like Mio. I almost always have their lemonade in my cupboard in the summer. Usually one other flavor to mix things up, like orange tangerine.

Haven't see one. I had about 40 people here at one time or another over the weekend for kind of a rolling family reunion and we ate every meal outside, it was a glorious weekend for weather. If we get them I think it'll be later in the summer, but we literally didn't even have any mosquitoes.

Warm but not humid days and nice cool evenings for campfires and sleeping. Last guest left about 10am, I've sort of been enjoying the peace again. Cooking and cleaning up behind that many people gets to be a chore on about day 3 even if you have help.

check with LooseGoose - I think he's the chair of the Mio Chamber of Commerce and they meet weekly at the phone booth adjacent to the water tower. He'll likely have more info on this couple.

A common refrain around the shop: I wish the hex would just end so I could go do other things. Like…go pop bugs out at Wakeley, go hit tricos on the North Branch (and the mainstream!), go throw foam, go smallmouth fishing, go creekin’, go gurgling, go fish the beadhead, go hit the evening olive spinners, go…

it’s a beauty unique to July. It’s a time when even the mighty hex, an often single-minded pursuit, is reduced to being just another fun thing to go do. My own plans for the week ahead include fishing with my kids on the South Branch for brook trout, heading to the big lake for smallmouth and or carp, fishing tricos with my dad, and a few annual attractor-fishing floats with friends. In July, there is little sitting and waiting. You don’t “hold a spot” in July. You just head off toward whatever it is what you want to do.

Last night my dad and I stumbled into a big empty river and a bunch of hex. It was surreal, awesome, and fun. Adventures were had. A bat landed on my hand (a first) and I dropped the boat pole. Dad caught his biggest Au Sable trout to date. I carelessly broke one off. We’d hoped for this, but hadn’t planned for it. We had good fishing with Isos on the way down the river. The rest was quite simply a July gift. In June, there’s so much expectation around, you can’t give it away. In July, expectation is like gold.

The beauty of choose

So much like your "angry meme" in other threads you won't be letting go of your "old meme" in this thread? As I've said elsewhere, you're a one trick pony that for years. What amazes me is that some intellectual midgets find that funny. Carry on and enjoy stalking my posts, it's creepy but I'm assuming you're a harmless little twit in person.

According to you we're all angry. You're the island of tranquility in a sea of anger. Or you're a fruitcake. I vote for option #2.

You think you know so much and the reality is that you know very little.

Hell, it's big time!

And area attraction featured earlier in this thread made the Free Press today.


Up North, a town fabricated from junk honors John Wayne

LEWISTON — It was high noon. The sun shone hot. The whiskey was flowing.

“Come on in!” hollered Spike Cooper, standing behind the bar of his saloon, Spike’s Tavern, located in Coopers Ville USA, a town that doesn’t really exist.

Inside the small, wood-plank saloon were two couples who’d sought this place out, made their way down the town’s main street, walked into the saloon and were suddenly chasing unforeseen shots of Fireball whiskey with cans of beer offered by Cooper, the town’s 71-year-old mayor and sole resident.

MIO, Michigan - Area Woman Gets First Look at Cutting-Edge Technology

In what can only be described as a historic day in Mio, area woman Edith Clapsaddle, 93, single-handedly brought her hometown into a post 1980's era as she displayed a hand held cellular device at a local gathering place. Edith had recently visited her great, great, great granddaughter in Sarasota, Florida when she returned with what appeared to be a remote control device for a television. All eyes were on her as she rolled into the Nip-N-Sip in her mechanical chair with what we later found out was a telephone. In a display that many will remember for their remaining days and weeks, Edith actually called her great, great, great granddaughter to show her friends how the device worked.

Edith will be available to answer questions about her telephone tomorrow between 4:00 - 5:00 AM at the Mio Cut-N-Curl. The telephone will be available for use during this time, if you would like a demonstration.

Roosting the competition

COMINS TWP. — The roar of four-strokes and bittersweet scent of two-strokes filled the air as dirt bike riders from across the Great Lakes region took part in the Single-Track Off-Road Events’ Baby Bear Family Enduro in Fairview July 9.

The action will intensify July 10 with the roughly 60-mile Grizzly Bear Enduro, sanctioned by the American Motorcyclist Association District 14 Series. The event is for riders 16 and older. Participants must be registered with AMA District 14, which can be done on scene. The entry fee is $50 at the site, which is Joel Yoder’s farm, located at 1829 N. Weaver Rd. in Fairview.
