Smallmouth Pioneers on the Menominee River with Tim Landwehr
Play • 1 hr 7 min

Our destination is De Pere, Wisconsin, and the Menominee River with Tim Landwehr of Tight Lines Fly Fishing Co.  In case you didn’t know, the warm water game is exploding, and the Menominee River in Northern Wisconsin may just be the best smallmouth bass fishery you’ve never heard of.  Unless of course, you’re from Wisconsin, where it’s pretty much legendary.  Tim and his crew have pioneered western-style, drift boat fly-fishing turning a relatively unknown wilderness river into a top Smallmouth destination.  Tim shares some great stories of fishing with the likes of Lefty Kreh and Dave Whitlock, the evolution of the smallmouth game, and his fight to save the Menominee from a highly toxic sulfide mine.   

Tim has been featured on ESPN Outdoors, OLN, Outdoor adventures, and even a Meateaters Das Boat episode.  He’s a frequent speaker at clubs and events and has hosted the Midwest Sportsman TV show.   And, he’s the Co-Author of the best-selling book called, Smallmouth: Modern Fly Fishing Methods, Tactics, and Techniques.

With Host, Steve Haigh
