Alex Lafkas has been a fly-fishing guide in Northern Michigan since 2000 and has been fly-fishing the Au Sable and Manistee Rivers for over 20 years. Alex began commercial tying in 1994 for Gates AuSable Lodge in Gryaling, MI. He has learned from the best anglers and guides on these rivers. He is extremely passionate about fly-fishing, guiding, and fly-tying. Alex’s college years took him to Montana where he spent days and nights fishing the Yellowstone, Beaverhead, Madison, and many other great rivers. There is no off season for Alex; he takes advantage of the extended seasons on both the Au Sable and Manistee Rivers.
