Our guest today is Mikey Hemkens.  Mikey grew up in Eureka, Missouri and started his fishing career at a very young age, 3.  With a quick start into the sport due to his older brother's tutorials, Mikey started fishing with the Fly-Fishing Team USA youth team while he was in high school and placed ninth in the World Championships in Portugal in 2008.  Mikey went onto DePauw University where he played football and graduated in 2011.  Mikey and I started working together in the summer of 2010 and seasonally have worked together since up until recently.  Mikey is one of the most sought-after trout fishing guides in the region and if you want to spend some time with Mikey on the water you better plan ahead.  Mikey guides year-round, anglers, hunters, and snowmobiling tours and has been doing so for over a decade, a very cool trifecta. Although I think Mikey just hung up the helmet, we will find out.   

Mikey has a captivating humorous personality that is infectious and wildly authentic, he is fun to be around, period.  I am lucky to call Mikey my neighbor now as he lives right down the road.  Mikey lives with his wife Jessica, his daughter Etta, the dogs Pinny & Izzie, cats Zoey and Millie and three horses and a mule. Without further adieu please welcome Mikey to the show!
