The Northeast Michigan Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative could not be as successful as it is without the dedicated support from all of our partners, including schools, government agencies, non profits, and businesses. They are the people that make these projects happen! Click the link below to see a list of all the partners involved in NEMI GLSI.

Tying Flies


On October 29th, A. J. Stibitz visited our Environmental Science class to show us how to tie different flies. Students learned about the various fish in the area while making different fishing lures.  In honor of the Caddisfly larva that we find in Oxbow Creek, students learned how to make young Caddisfly lures. Once the Caddisfly pupa emerges from its case and waits on the surface of the water for its wings to dry, it is vulnerable to fish attacks.  As you can see, our flies are realistic enough to fool the smartest fish.
