Mikey Wier started fly-fishing at age 7, and the sport has been a big part of his life ever sense. Mikey was born in New Zealand, and moved to the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains at age 2. He spent much of his childhood chasing around bass and trout in the Hwy 88 region. Mikey joined the Delta fly fishers at age 9 and began tying flies. He further developed his skills over the years and now prides himself on trying to fish with only flies that he has tied.
Mikey moved to Lake Tahoe 10 years ago and has been snowboarding in the winters and working in the fly fishing industry in the summers, for the past 10 years. He started out as a shop employee with the Tahoe Fly Fishing Outfitters and has been a full time guide in the Tahoe area for the past 8 seasons. Mikey most frequently guides the Carson Rivers, Pleasant Valley, the Walker Rivers, The Truckee and Little Truckee, and the high country lakes.
In addition to guiding, Mikey also started and runs Burl Productions. They do FISH EYE Fly Fishing Video Magazine and have worked on several other projects such as The Trout Bum Diaries. Burl Productions is the first fishing oriented production company to bring non-instructional, hard core fishing entertainment based videos to the market. Burl Productions still prides itself on producing the most exciting videos available today.
