Username: flyfishwestmichigan City: Grand Rapids State: Michigan "Jeff Bacon started fly fishing in 1974, when he and his father Ron went west to visit dad's college buddy in southwest Montana. It was on the banks of the Big Hole River that his first Grayling was caught, knots learned and skills began to develop that would serve him well in the years ahead. Through high school, college and beyond, the draw of the river never lost its appeal, in fact..it grew stronger.
After many years of retail life, Jeff decided to take a "break" from the traditional work life, which was retail owner/operator.......that was over 12 years ago ! Jeff now guides on many West Michigan river, including the Muskegon , Pere Marquette , Manistee , White , Rogue , Grand and Flat rivers for cold and warm water species of fish.
An FFF Certified Casting Instructor, he has taught hundreds of anglers various tactics and techniques used to chase warm and coldwater species of fish. From the delicate presentation of a # 18 BWO, to roll casting a nymph rig or stripping rodent size streamer patterns on 8 weight rods. All of these great techniques have been tried, are true and can be taught.
From individual instruction to group outings, most any request can be accommodated, please call or email for more details.
