BOOK A TRIP!

Mike Exl is the store manager and an owner of Moving Water Outfitters in Zionsville, IN. He also runs his own guide service in the area as well.

Mike was born and raised in Northwest Indiana. He was introduced to fishing very early on, thanks to his father and brother. He started fly fishing at a very young age, and it quickly became his only method of fishing. While attending Purdue University, he began to work and guide part time for the local fly shop. Upon graduating from Purdue in 2009, Mike went on to working full time for the fly shop.

Mike has been very fortunate to have traveled to many places around the world to fish. He has spent time in Alaska, British Columbia, Chile, Bahamas, Mexico, and all over the United States. When not heading to more exotic locations, Mike can be found traveling the Midwest. He specializes in smallmouth and carp, but loves fishing for Great Lakes steelhead with a two-handed rod.

He currently resides in central Indiana with his wife, Rachel and daughter Violet.
