river marine outfitters is a fly fishing business in Manistee
Welcome to River Marine Outfitters
A fishing guide is a person who is not tied to his own agenda, but a person whose purpose is to give you the best fishing experience possible.
River Marine Outfitters is the most raccoon-eyed, fish seeing, boat rowing, fly casting, gore-tex wearing, fish netting guide you’ll ever find.
“This institution is an equal opportunity provider and is operated under special use permit with the Huron Manistee National Forests.”
I have launched River Marine Outfitters, a small independent Fly Fishing outfitter based here in Manistee, with the goal of providing the best possible guide service in NW Michigan.
By doing this, I am able to utilize my affiliations with The Northern Angler fly shop in Traverse City, Michigan while simultaneously, maintaining my freedom to implement my own program. What does this mean to you? Simply put everything. First of all, the days of hidden costs associated with a day on the river are gone, everything but your fishing license is included: flies, tippets, leaders, lunches, transportation, and gear everything. You will not be given a fly bill, you will not pay for rental gear, you will not pay for shuttles, and you will only pay for the guide day. That is it. End of story.
