Jon has fly fished around the world including Argentina, Belize, Alaska, and New Zealand. Some of his favorite fishing spots outside of Michigan include: stripers in Maine, Dorado in Argentina, 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 that elusive 6 pound smallmouth bass of your dreams, while also improving their fishing skill level. Jon Ray truly loves to teach the art of angling.
