The past year has been a whirlwind, in a good way. Many trips, new clients, old friends and more places to fish with even more exciting venues for 2017. A few trips have been multiple client days on the river and True North Trout is ready to accommodate parties of 4 for double trips with the addition of Randy Monchilov.
Randy has lived in Gaylord for the past 17 years, has guided since ’02 and previously owned a tackle shop in Saginaw- “Tackle Land”. Randy has two great children, Mason, 16 and Morgan, 13. They like to spend their time on nearby lakes in the Gaylord area and are very active in school sports. Randy has fished many of the rivers we call ‘home-water’ in the northern portion of the Mitten, especially the Au Sable where he has a cabin on the North Branch which will be utilized for beginner casting and fly fishing lessons. Randy has had the opportunity to own and row many drift boats in his career, from Hydes to Clacka’s and most recently a RO, but chose to get an Adipose FLOW. In eye catching Montana Big Sky Blue, you will find it hard not to notice another Adipose floating down the upper Manistee River. Randy likes to fish for anything that swims but his passion is for trout. He used to compete in BASS tournaments but felt it no longer provided the challenge that rivers and trout offer. Simply put- “There is nothing more exciting than watching a trout sip your dry fly.”
We are looking forward to many trips this year and have already started to book some prime dates in 2017. Say ‘Hello’ to Randy when you see him at the Midwest Expo and welcome him to True North Trout team and the Adipose Family.
