I had a great time on Wednesday and I always have a great time fishing with you. Your knowledge, experience and professionalism always inspires me to do better. You and Bob have been such major influences it makes me want get better, and learn more. Fly fishing and doing what I can to protect the amazing resources we have is my retirement focus. I am finally starting to understand what an amazing resource the PM is, I truly appreciate your guidance and friendship.
"I have fished with a few quality guides in many regions of North America. Jeff reads and understands the angling level of each individual that steps foot on his boat. This provides the ultimate experience for beginners to advanced anglers. Whether swinging flies for steelhead or trout, hopper fishing in the summer, indicator fishing or using shooting line for salmon. Jeff appreciates quality fish and a quality time on the river. I have spent many days on the river with Jeff and have yet to be disappointed. If you’re looking for a guided trip with your wife, girlfriend, mother, father, best friend or business associate. Jeff will handle and deal with the anglers with the utmost professionalism. Good Luck! And remember to bring your camera!"
"Jeff Hubbard & Outfitters North were introduced to me in 2009 by my friends Sam and Matt. I fish the PM with Jeff several times a year and can’t make a higher recommendation for a guide & fly fishing teacher. Jeff has guided some of the finest fly fishing moments in my life when I’ve been able to share my passion with my dad. Jeff’s patience with instruction and technique and his drive to put me on fish is unmatched. Recently Jeff introduced me to his passion of using Spey techniques to swing flies for steelhead……I can’t thank him, (and my fishing buds Sam and Matt) enough. I can’t imagine a better day fishing than to spend it on the PM, in any kind of weather with Jeff, my buds Sam and Matt, my father and Outfitters North."
"If you want to catch 'trophy' fish and a lot of them, Jeff is the ONLY choice. He knows the rivers he guides as no others. I have been guided by Jeff for the last 8 years for up to 5 trips per year during the King and Steely runs. On days when few others were 'hooking up' Jeff knew exactly where the fish were and in abundance!!. The 'fishing experience' Jeff provides is second to none and he works very hard to put you 'on the fish' because it truly matters to him that his clients have a great time.The thing I have been most impressed by is how hard he works. I have always thought he gets more excited that I do, when we hook into a 'big one'. Of course the 'hook up' is only part of it; he coaches you through the 'fight' and he knows no limits to doing all he can to 'net' that 'big one' to give you the photo op to 'wow' your friends back home. He is the consummate professional, who has the patience to work with the novice and the tact to help the 'crusty ol' timers'' (that would be me) learn how to up my 'landing ratio', which Jeff takes as much pleasure in as I do. So, if you want action and a lot of it, a guide that really cares about you having a great experience, loves what he does and helps you to become a better fly fisherman, then Jeff Hubbard is your ONLY choice. "
"The two weeks that I have fished with you for steelhead were the best two fishing experiences that I have enjoyed, with marvellous fishing, awesome fish and a top class guide, all of which made my journey from the U.K well worth the effort. Atlantic salmon are now seen as second best!"
"I've been fishing with Jeff for almost 17 years. Before I began fishing with Jeff, I was a seasoned veteran in the sport of getting skunked. The first time out with Jeff on the P.M. was a trip I will never forget. Jeff was honest with me and said, "Today is going to be sunny and it will be a tough day to catch fish." When the day was through I had put 7 steelies in the net, and had 7 or 8 more on. I learned more in one day, than I had learned in the three years before. Jeff has done a great job of sharing his knowledge with me about this sport, the rivers we fish, the flies he ties, and the fish we seek. It's obvious to me, Jeff knows his stuff. And his mouth watering lunch always hits the spot for me, while on the river. Jeff will always be my guide of choice. Thanks Jeff for a great time!"
"I have been fishing with Jeff Hubbard for over 10 years now and have always had productive and great times. Jeff’s expertise has a way of getting you on fish even on those days when everyone else is struggling. I use Jeff on trips where I bring my most important customers knowing that I can always be assured of a rewarding experience."
"Jeff is a Spiritual artisan at the Pere Marquette River. He knows every inch of PM River and all the best spots to find any fish species. Jeff is the best fishing guide I have ever hired."
"Great times, laughter, and knowledge of the quarry that is being hunted, is exactly what I received on my many float trips with Jeff. Whether we are after browns, salmon, or steelhead, he put me on fish. Thanks Jeff."
"Having fished with Jeff Hubbard for the last eight years, I can only say a big thank you from my business customers, fishing buddies and family who have all had wonderful days on the river. Jeff’s fishing skills, river knowledge and personal attention always make for a fun and successful day."
"I had the great fortune approximately 5 years ago to fish with Jeff." He is a “first class” guide and person. He has taught my wife Karen to cast a line, he has introduced the addiction of swinging flies for “Chrome Rockets” in the fall and he continues to refine and upgrade my techniques to become a better fisherman. Whether you are fishing for steelhead, salmon or dry fly fishing with hoppers you cannot go wrong. Thanks for the great times and looking forward to new memories made on the river."
"Regrettably I have to admit that I am a novice angler. I should have started decades ago when my grandfather wanted me to. It has been my pleasure to begin my fishing life with Jeff Hubbard of Outfitters North. My steep learning curve and enjoyment of this wonderful sport is without doubt the work of Jeff. His skill and expertise with equipment is always welcome and freely given and his keen knowledge of moving water with a glimpse into the minds of fish always adds to my experience. So whether we are "on" the fish or searching the holes where we think they should be, the day never fails to be a terrific learning experience with great camaraderie. Whatever the season, when you want to experience the beauty of Northern Michigan rivers and the thrill of a line going tight with a gifted river guide, I highly recommend you contact Jeff Hubbard of Outfitters North."
"Last Fall a friend and I traveled from Scotland to fish for steelheads with Jeff Hubbard. We were not disappointed. Not only did Jeff find fish and prove to be a first class river guide, he is also a great cook and companion. We had an exciting and varied week; something I would like very much to repeat."
