Captain Jon Ray has been fly-fishing since the age of 15 and has guided fly anglers in Michigan and Colorado for the last decade. Jon's first love is chasing large resident trout with streamers & dry flies. The Upper & Lower Manistee, Muskegon and the Pere Marquette are among his favorite rivers.
Jon has fly fished around the world including Alaska, and New Zealand. Some of his favorite fishing spots outside of Michigan include: stripers in Maine, trout in Montana, and snook in Florida. He brings all this experience to your fishing day with an enthusiasm that is contagious. Jon is totally focused on helping his clients land that trophy chrome steelhead, large wary brown trout or dominate male salmon of your dreams, while also improving their fishing skill level.
Jon is an Orvis-endorsed guide who is continually pushing the state-of-the-art in fly fishing with new techniques, tactics, and strategies to enhance the fishing experience.
