Speaker Meeting – Niall McCarthy

December 9, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Niall first learned to fly fish on the Au Sable River with his dad when he was 10 years old. His dad spent his time untangling Niall’s tangles, while Niall thrashed the water with something that resembled a cast. During that trip they got lost on the South Branch, caught a few fish, watched an intoxicated canoeist jump off the Stephan bridge, and most importantly, Niall was imprinted with the joy of fly fishing.
Between that trip and now, Niall has fished from the Kispiox River to the flats of the Bahamas and many places in between. His favorite way to fish is to swing flies for Steelhead in Michigan, and he never passes up an opportunity to fish for carp in the crystal clear waters of Grand Traverse Bay. Watching Smallmouth demolish divers and poppers is the ultimate way for Niall to spend his summer days. When he really wants to be humbled, he’ll throw gigantic Musky flies until his arm falls off. The Hendricks hatch on the Au Sable in May is always memorable.
After spending four years learning the fly fishing business from the ground up, Niall felt confident to run his own shop but better in every way…cue Motor City Anglers, founded in 2019. Niall is proud to have given countless anglers instruction for single hand casting and spey casting. These anglers  range from total greenhorns to some pretty good casters. Niall is delighted every time he watches an angler’s casting progress.
Please join Niall at our upcoming speaker meeting, meet him if you haven’t visited the Motor City Angers Fly Shop, and learn something new about the Hendricks.
