The Hungry Trout Resort, known for its fine lodging and dining is also home to "The Hungry Trout Fly Shop". The shop provides everything for anglers : gear and accessories, fly fishing instruction, fly fishing guides, great advise on fishing and river conditions. Every staff member I encountered there obviously had a passion for the sport of fly fishing and they seemed to have a genuine interest in providing clients with all they needed, be them beginners or experts. Having fished the west branch of the Ausable river a number of times by myself and also on guided trips, I was looking for a new experience. The Hungry Trout Fly Shop had just what I needed : a float trip down the river. Basically, you and your guide each have a small inflatable craft that allows you to float down river from one fishing spot to the next. You simply step off your boat to fish a particular riffle, flat or pool and then get back on to go to the next spot of interest. Even in low water conditions, this proved to be easy, efficient and a whole lot of fun. My guide could not have been friendlier or more competent. You do need to be in good health for this though, there is some rowing involved and one needs to have decent coordination to stear this small craft properly. Ohter than that, it's just an enjoyable thing to do, an added value to your fishing experience. This was memorable.
