LOTFO Highlighted Ambassador- Mike “Dog” Rice

Mike  Rice is a New England Native, who has lead lives as a  former cop, Chuck Norris stunt double, commercial fly tyer,  surf fisherman & die hard Chicago Bears fan.  Referred to by his friends as “Dog” , He  is as unique as his flies that are tied.  Each material for each fly is hand selected up to 3 times, to insure that you get a quality fly.

Mike specializes in North-East & South-East Saltwater flies: Striped Bass, Bluefish, Bluefin Tuna, Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Mahi Mahi, Cobia, Shark & Bonefish. Cap Cod and Marthas Vineyard are his home waters, so you might see  “Dog” bombing out 60ft casts with a laundry basket tied to his waste, make sure you stop and say hello….. 

Feel free to visit Mike’s site at Mud Dog Flies to learn more about him and purchase his flies. Visit the about section of LOTFO to view more of the LOTFO Ambassadors or our destinations.

Cinco Rios Lodge is located near the quaint South American city of Coyhaique, Chile. which is about a 3hr flight south from Santiago. The main lodge is located on the banks of the Rio Simpson. Which is the home of Southern Chile’s most pristine trout water. From experienced guides who grew up in the valley to US born and Chilean trained guides this lodge will be sure to exceed your needs, for the novice and veteran anglers alike.
