Northern Michigan's Premier Fly Fishing Outfitter

Boyne Country & Michigan's Tip of the Mitt region offers over a thousand miles of top-quality trout water, countless acres of public lands, and endless expanses of freshwater lakes. An anglers paradise.

Such great access to amazing fisheries... but this is also the land of legends. Hemingway spent his summers up the road. Trout Unlimited was formed over on the Au Sable. The Adams Fly was tied & tested on nearby waters. We are at the heart of it all.

Guide Trips

Our Waters

  • Boyne River

    Relatively small for most of its length, however, do not let its small size fool you. There are some great angling opportunities in these waters.

  • Jordan River

    Michigan's First Natural River. Considered by many as the most scenic locale in Northern Michigan, the Jordan River Valley is a beautiful escape from the ordinary.

  • Upper Manistee

    The upper reaches of the Manistee River - or the Upper Manistee as most refer to it - is classic Michigan trout water in true form and arguably contains some of the best fly fishing opportunities in the Midwest.

  • Sturgeon River

    The fastest river in Michigan's lower peninsula. Cold and well oxygenated, the Sturgeon offers fantastic fishing opportunities along its northern route to Burt Lake.

  • Pigeon River

    A Michigan Natural River and the heart of 'The Big Wild' - Michigan's Pigeon River Country State Forest. A classic blue ribbon trout stream hidden from the noise of modern civilization.

  • Black River

    “This is the way forests were in the olden days. This is about the last good country there is left." Hemingway Country, through and through, and one of the finest brook trout streams east of the Mississippi.

  • Maple River

    Cold and sandy bottomed with a beautiful tannin stain and a healthy population of brook, brown and rainbow trout... the Maple is a classic Northern Michigan trout stream tucked away in northwest Michigan.
