We provide fly-fishing and upland bird hunting guide services in Michigan.

Trout (Brown, Brook and Rainbow), Steelhead, King and Coho Salmon, Smallmouth Bass, Pike and Carp are on our hit list. If it can be caught on a fly, we are on it!

Wild Michigan Ruffed Grouse and Woodcock are also a big part of who we are and what we do. Our bird dogs are simply the best, ask our list of growing clients. We will on request fish and hunt in the same day (we call it cast and blast). Be prepared for some sore muscles in this scenario!

What we provide

All guide fishing we provide a very nice shore lunch, watercraft if on a float trip, leaders and tippets, all flies, transportation to and from the water, and pick up and drop off at your lodging. Oh yes, we provide constructive instruction in a professional manner.

Proper clothing, including rain protection. We will inform you if waders are required on your trip. Michigan fishing license or Michigan small game license if hunting.
