Guest Spreaker - Mike Copithorne

Mike is from Off the Hook Fly Fishing, a California Fly Fishing Guide and International Travel Company based in the Napa Valley.

Mike grew up near the base of Mt Lassen in Northern California outside of Redding. He found himself drawn to fly fishing at the early age of 11. Over the years his love and obsession with fly fishing as well as the friendships it has brought have grown. This drive to fish has led him to travel the globe in search of new fly fishing targets.

He has been a professional athlete, worked in fly fishing retail, been published in fly fishing print, and traveled with friends and clients fly rod in hand over the last 22 years. “I have been truly blessed” he says in “many ways”. “I hope everyone feels this fortunate”. He aspires to be a man of faith, a good husband and father, and to share his love for fly fishing with others.

Mike is at home on the water whether it is on a coastal Steelhead river, in the jungle or a local farm pond in the Napa Valley. It was this love and enjoyment of fly fishing that led he and Carrie to partner up with life-long friend and fishing partner Dr. Ryan Hawks and his wife Kami in this joint venture called Off the Hook Fly Fishing llc. “Our hope is that in fishing with us memories will be etched, and friendships will be forged that will last a lifetime”
