Michigan native and current New York State resident Brian Kelly has been chasing salmon and steelhead throughout the Great Lakes, Pacific Northwest and Alaska for more than 20 years. A die hard egg junkie, Kelly is always testing new egg curing techniques and colors during his travels. His current digs are in the heart of the chrome rich waters of Lake’s Erie’s Steelhead Alley, where the never ending task of finding the perfect egg takes place each fall, winter and spring. Annual jaunts to Alaska provide a unique testing ground for mixing Great Lakes and Pacific Northwest tactics on the Coho, Kings and native rainbows that reside on the last frontier.
Kelly is a free lance outdoor writer whose works can be found in such publications as Great Lakes Angler, Outdoor Life, Lake Ontario Outdoors and many others.
