Michael McAuliffe

Michael began fly fishing at the age of ten with his father on the Famed Battenkill River in NY and VT. He Fly Fishes for a huge array of warm/cold freshwater, and saltwater species including Steelhead, Carp, False Albacore, Striped Bass, Weakfish, Blue Fish, Walleye, Pike, Shad, Bass and Trout. Michael guides a few days a week for Trout in NJ.

Michael is the Director of Marketing (Web/Print/Social Media), Pro Staff Director, and a Product designer for REGAL VISE. He is also the instructor for the REGAL Fly Tying School. Michael favors well tied simple guide style flies. If he cannot tye it in five minutes, it is not getting tied.

Michael divides his time equally between his family, Fly Fishing/Guiding/Tying, and commercial design/web work. Somehow he still finds time to fish occasionally and tell you that you need to clean up your drift.
