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 immerses himself in the outdoors. 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 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. These Rivers offer world class warm-water fishing. His angling travels have taken him from Patagonia to Russia 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 fundraisers that takes place on his home waters of the Huron River, Michigan’s Blue Ribbon Smallmouth stream. During the spring of 2014 Schultzy was honored with the HRWC Partner of the Year award.
Schultzy is a member of the Simms Fishing Products ELITE and YETI Ambassador programs, and is a member of the Scientific Anglers, Costa Del Mar, Clackacraft, and Regal Pro Staff. His signature fly patterns are available through Fulling Mills.
He currently resides in Dexter, Michigan on the banks of The Huron River with his wife, Allie and sons, Tanner and Dylan.
