The Guide - Chad

I have been fishing the Au Sable, Manistee and some other rivers since I was a boy. I enjoy taking people out to experience fly fishing at its best. Northern Michigan is full of some of the best trout streams and rivers. My goal is for you to have a great time and of course catch some fish. I have done a lot of volunteer work with vets and kids. It does not matter if you are a beginner or an experienced fly fisherman,  I will show you some awesome scenery and a great time fly fishing. Call to book your trip today:

Our Trips

For all trips you will need to make sure you have appropriate clothing for the weather and glasses for eye protection. I provide flies but you may bring your favorites also. There is never a guarentee that we will catch fish but I will do my best to make sure your trip is enjoyable and memorable.

For our driftboat trips we will be fishing out of a new stealthcraft driftboat. I will bring the rod & reels for you to use along with the flies to match current hatches.

We also use a raft for exploring skinnier waters and getting spots without launches. It is very stable and comfortable to use and yes you can stand up in it.

We also offer Ausable Riverboat trips for those who want to explore the North Branch of the Ausable. I only take one fisherman in the riverboat.

I require a $100 non refundable deposit to secure your date. If something comes up where you cannot make it I will work with you on picking a new date.
