My name is Tommy Lynch, I am a Fly Fishing Guide living near Baldwin Michigan where I guide full time on several different streams, but primarily on the Pere Marquette River where I have done so for over 20 years while fly fishing almost 30 years. The FishWhisperer was a nick name given to me by an old girlfriend back in college, (who in fact was very much into horses), in response to my fishing addictions that would never be satisfied as it would seem. Cheesy? Yeah, but I went on to use it as a screen name on a fishing report website called The Steelhead Site where I used to frequent since college before naming my new website here the same.
At the ripe old age of seven I started fishing the Pere Marquette with my father, fishing spawn bags and hardware in the lower sections of the river before I could even fill a pair of waders; it wasn’t until 1985 when I would introduced to a fly rod and the gentle art, this at the age of eleven. From that point it was just something that fit for me, like the river does within its banks. Never have I found something as gratifying as a Trout on the end of a Fly Line my whole life, though seldom have I looked being satisfied with what is. Having fished Western rivers, guided Alaska, frequented Ontario’s Streams, and even tangoed with a Tarpon or two in the Caymans & Keys; never have I found a place so diverse and inviting as I have in my home state on The Pere Marquette River right here in North Western Michigan.
