SJRVFF Welcomes Captain Jon Ray

Captain Jon Ray has been fly fishing for the past 23 years and has guided fly anglers in  Michigan with Hawkins Outfitters for the past 12 years. Jon’s first love is chasing trout, steelhead, small-mouth bass and muskie with streamers. Jon guides anglers with single or two-handed rods with a variety of techniques. He is an expert angler, employing his skills of observation to fly fishing and thinking “out of the box”, creating new, innovative methods to catch fish.

The Upper & Lower Manistee, Pere Marquette, and many unknown and unspoken locations in northern Michigan are among Jon Ray’s favorite spots.

Jon Ray 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 or large wary brown trout of their dreams. His love for photography can be viewed at Mangled Fly, as he tries to capture the many memories that the river provides.
