Walking stick-great addition for the wading arsenal

   GRAYLING-Turns out, despite colder then usual temperatures, we actually had a nice hendrickson hatch on the Manistee Friday.
   Several in our group caught and released trout on both dry flies and the go to bug, the muddler minnow. Saturday dawned quite cold, but warmed nicely throughout the day.
   Jim Rickard of Traverse City fame asked it anyone wanted to go with him to fish the North Branch. Thinking he was talking the AuSable I put my hand up. I've had hardly no experience on that part of the river.
   Turns out he meant the north branch of the Manistee. To go on an outing with Rickard is an adventure. Usually one becomes Rickarized-kind of initiated into fishing on a trip that always provide memories and conversation for later dates.
   Let's just say I sleep sound Saturday night. Oh, for that walking stick, read Wednesday's blog and I'll talk about along with the second rules according to Rickard.
