Grayling-trout opener destination

   Should you be in Grayling for the trout opener this weekend be sure and stop by the Old AuSable Fly Shop.
   It's located downtown exactly on the shores of the AuSable River. Friday beginning about 1p.m., food will be served until it runs out; usually quite late.
   This is a good way to kick off the new trout season, see old friends, browse the shop to see all that is new in the world of fly fishing and make a purchase or two.
   This time of the year, Grayling and environs are the location for many opening day celebrations that are annual events.
   Good friend John J.P. Long used to fondly call it a religious holiday. Long wrote the river guides for many of the rivers we all like to fish.
   His description may have been a stretch but to a lot of us, there isn't any other place we would want to be on the last Saturday in April.
   And like the Old AuSables annual celebration, we all like to get started a little early. See you in Grayling country.
