Jay Anglin started guiding anglers on the creeks and rivers of Michiana in 1996. Eventually founding his company Anglin Outdoors, Jay now guides anglers and hunters 12 months a year. He learned how to fly fish on the streams of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula as a boy and within a year he was tying all of his own flies for future excursions. A Northern Indiana native, Jay honed his fly fishing skills on his hometowns namesake, the Wabash River and its tributaries. Eventually his family relocated to Lake Tippecanoe where fishing was much more convenient.
Jay graduated from Wawasee High School in Syracuse and possesses a biology degree from Northern Michigan University in Marquette (which may be a small miracle in of itself as the relentless distraction of trout, grouse and skiing – among other things – disrupted every waking hour).
He now resides in LaPorte, Indiana with his wife Angie, their five children and two Labradors. He writes a weekly outdoor column and is a sports photographer for the LaPorte Herald Argus.
