As chronicled in "Fifty Places to Fly Fish Before You Die" you'll quickly appreciate the romance of the Au Sable.  Experience the Holy Waters, Masons Tract of the South Branch, Mio Trophy Water, and famous Hex Hatch.  In fact, it was the beauty of this region and quality of trout fishing that lead to the formation of the very first Trout Unlimited chapter - formed in 1959 by Au Sable river anglers.
