Au Sable River Guide Service is on the banks of the famed Au Sable River, through the “Holy Waters”, Mio & below, the South & North Branch of the Au Sable, and the Upper Manistee rivers. I offer full & half-day guided float trips and personal instruction lessons for casting, presentation, and technique.

As the owner of Au Sable River Guide Service, I am a certified USCG Captain. I am an experienced fly fisher and instructor. I enjoy guiding all experience levels of fly fishers, from first timers to experienced fly fishers. I also enjoy introducing women anglers and youth anglers to this wonderful sport. I support Trout Unlimited and am a past State Chairperson of Michigan Trout Unlimited.

Please give me a call or contact me by email and I’ll answer any of your questions regarding a wonderful guided float or instruction.
