Guide service

Trophy Waters Fly Shop’s guides are licensed and insured and will take you down the river in safety inspected drift boats or Au Sable River long boats. Our service is ideal for both the novice and the long-time fisherman. Our guides love beginners and will be happy to provide patient instruction when needed.
