Mike Dawkins, Partner/Guide
Mike grew up in Nashville, TN developing a passion for fly-fishing and hunting at a very young age. While attending Miami University, Mike created and implemented a fly-fishing program for the university’s Outdoor Education Center that included clinics, workshops, and trips for students and faculty members that is now listed as a Miami University accredited class. Upon graduation, Mike moved to Jackson Hole, WY and started his career with the Orvis Company, where he was named Orvis “Fishing Manager of the Year” for 2006. Mike has been featured on Trout TV and Seasons on the Fly and the Orvis Fly Fishing Blog (Mouse-Eating Monster of the Rividavia, Trout Bum XIV, Peacock Bass and More, Homegrown Tenkara, and Wyoming is for “Cutthroat” Lovers). He is a proud advisory board member for Casting 4 a Cure, a non-profit group that helps fund research and development for treatment and finding the potential cure for Rhett Syndrome. As a Teton Valley resident, he is active volunteer for the Teton Valley Foundation. When not fishing the local area rivers, Mike can be found swinging flies for Steelhead or chasing upland birds and sitting in a duck blind with his black Labrador retriever, Tui.
