Despite a rainy 2017, I'm seeing some of the best fishing this season in years, here in Illinois. The Big River's producing some excellent days with a nice range of healthy, hard fighting smallmouth.

Some dates for September and October are available. Email willwinans@bigriverfly.com to set up a trip or reserve a date for 2018.
