Very knowledgeable and the use of science and principles of physics in the use of a fly rod gives you the tools to truly understand the why behind what is being taught so you can correct your casting in the right place instead of putting band aids on the problem. Just like golf - get to the right instructor and you will be able to improve with and without them!

The best fly fishing experience. I have been going out with Mac a number of times over a year and a half. This is simply the best fly fishing experience you will have. Great fishing but much more. Always learning with Mac, always- on casting, reading water, choosing flies, presentation, setting and more. One of the best days you will have on the water.

This is the fourth time we have gone out with with Mac over the last few years with my two oldest boys. First time in the snow. He is a gifted teacher and exceptionally patient with children. He knows where to find fish. When the bite is off he spends time teaching technique and how to crack the code. The best.
