fishing guide
All Tackle Fisherman guide service is run and owned by myself, Chris Martin. I have been guiding anglers on the Big Manistee, Pine, Little Manistee and Pere Marquette rivers for nearly two decades. I specialize in light tackle and fly fishing for steelhead, salmon, trout, smallmouth bass and pike.  I am an independent outfitter not affiliated with any lodge or “shop,” I spent a good part of my earlier career working for one of the areas premier outfitters. I offer unparalleled customer service.  You will receive the upmost attention to your needs and wants as my client. As a customer you will not be treated like another payday for a large outfitter with multiple guides. It’s my goal to satisfy your needs and meet expectations. I love teaching kids. I am a father myself and love making and creating those memories.

I am honored and lucky to call the Manistee River in Northern Michigan my home and office.
