Mike Schultz (known as “Schultzy” to most) is the Owner of Schultz Outfitters Fly Shop & Guide Service specializing in Southeastern Michigan angling, instruction, and destination travel.
Born and raised in the Great State of Michigan, Schultzy has enjoyed the outdoors his entire life. After graduating from Eastern Michigan University with a Bachelor of Business Administration, he started guiding and working in the fly-fishing industry full-time.
Logging countless hours on the water each year, Schultzy has developed a vast knowledge of Midwestern waters and beyond. The bulk of his guiding and angling takes place on his home waters of Southeastern Michigan; The Huron, Flint, Shiawassee, Raisin & Kalamazoo Rivers offer world class warm-water fishing. His angling travels have taken him from Alaska to Patagonia and many places in between.
Over the years with the help of the Huron River Watershed Council, he founded the Huron River Single Fly as well as the Huckin for the Huron. Both are annual fundraiser that takes place on his home waters of the Huron River; Michigan’s Blue Ribbon Smallmouth stream. In the spring of 2014 Schultzy was honored with the HRWC Partner of the Year award.
Schultzy is a member of the Simms Fishing and YETI Ambassador programs, and is a member of the Scientific Anglers, Costa Del Mar and Regal Pro Staff. His signature fly patterns are available through the ORVIS Company.
He currently resides in Dexter, Michigan on the banks of The Huron River with his wife, Allie and son Tanner.
