UPDATE - The dates that remain available to fly fish on this trip are Saturday, Sunday and Monday (June 23-25, 2018).
If someone can jump on this "Beaver Island Quickie", we’ll be flying over on Friday afternoon (June 22) and you could then fly back to Charlevoix on Monday afternoon (June 25) after coming off the water.
There would be NO LODGING COSTS as that has already been taken care of.
Email or call/text (803-917-2128) this weekend if you have any questions or want in.
So, this never happens. It's less than three weeks until the the annual return to Beaver Island, Michigan with Captain Kevin Morlock and Captain Steve Martinez of Indigo Guide Service and one of the crew had to bow out for an unforeseen reason this morning. Obviously we're disappointed and now in need of an angler short to spend a few days looking for oversized carp and smallmouth (northern pike too) on the island flats that are scattered in the middle of Lake Michigan.
I am looking for someone who can meet us in Charlevoix, Michigan on the afternoon of Friday, June 22nd to fly over to Beaver Island with the return set up for Friday, June 29nd after we get done fly fishing for the day.
The trip is set up for seven days of fly fishing but I am willing to break that up into a smaller trip if someone is interested part of the trip but can't swing all. There may be someone who wants the first half of the trip and another who wants the second half.

The price of the entire eight day trip should figure in somewhere south of $2,000 for seven days guided fly fishing, lodging, food, fishing license, tips and airfare to and from Beaver Island.
Here's some more photography persuasion...
Are you ready to toss flies at the largest carp and smallmouth of your life? Beaver Island is a place not to be missed if given the chance. The experience goes way beyond the fly fishing and has had me coming back now summer after summer for eight years.
Interested? Give me a call at 803-917-2128 or email at email@example.com with questions, hash out any details or to let me know that you're in.
