joe and mike 2011

I’ve known and worked with Mike for a number of years; he has become a knowledgeable, fine fly fisher.

A day on the stream with Mike would be a learning experience, and I’m sure a pleasurable one.

Michael Carl is an enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and skillful fly fisher. Michael has worked hard at improving his knowledge and skills in all areas of fly fishing and fly tying. He has attended our schools numerous times as well as other fly fishing workshops and seminars throughout the country. His enthusiasm, knowledge and experience has allowed him to become a talented instructor/guide in our schools. We highly recommend Michael as a fly fishing instructor/guide, and believe whether a beginner or experienced fly fisher, you can profit from spending time on the water with Michael.

Mike Carl has truly mastered the Harvey/Humphreys casting approach to fly fishing. Even more rarely, he has the gift of teaching others what he knows. I highly recommend Mike to anyone who would like to become a better fisherman.
