The man behind the curtain. Mike is the guy that builds this amazing website, takes the photos (Winston Pro Photographer) and creates all of the marketing media graphics used by the Silver Bow Fly Shop. He has a keen eye for detail and a talent for design. Choosing to build things from the ground up, Mike takes pride in knowing that all of his designs are original and that consumers viewing his work can appreciate the simplicity and functionality. In addition to the website and media for the shop, Mike is also our Account Manager and Store Manager. When we have technical issues, Mike is the man and gets it fixed no matter how complex the issue is.
When not slaving away at the shop, Mike enjoys fishing adventures locally, or abroad with his brother Sean. Having developed an addiction to saltwater angling since 2010, Mike has gone on numerous Bahamas bonefish, Mexico tarpon trips, and the Jardines de la Reina region of Cuba. In addition, his travels include hosting a group in 2017 to Tsimane Lodge Bolivia for golden dorado and 2020 back to Jardines de la Reina Cuba with Bo Brand and guests.
