Manny is the Guiding Manager at Grand River Outfitting & Fly Shop in Fergus, Ontario. He has been fly fishing and fly tying for over 30 years, starting at the age of 16 and never looking back.

Since retiring as a golf professional after 27 years, he still missed the urge to teach again. So, after being a part-time guide for a few years he took the plunge six years ago and became a full-time fly fishing guide in Southern Ontario. Manny specializes in fishing soft hackle wet flies and nymphs in small creeks and streams for brown trout, rainbow trout, and steelhead.

With the abundance of creeks and streams in southern Ontario having so much deadfall and overhanging bush, Manny saw that there was a need to teach his clients how to fish those difficult waters.

Manny offers walk and wade guided trips and, also intros for those just getting into fly fishing.
