Rick Kustich is a fly fishing author, photographer and instructor. In January 2013 he released Advanced Fly Fishing for Great Lakes Steelhead which is his fifth fly fishing title. Rick’s work has appeared in numerous national and regional publications. He has also spent time as a guide, fly shop owner and fly fishing book publisher.
Rick began fly fishing over forty years ago on the lakes and streams of upstate New York. He has since traveled extensively to experience the finest fly fishing throughout North America and beyond but continues to find that some of the best fishing often exists in your own backyard. Rick spends a significant amount of time each year on the water and has developed a special passion for trout, musky and steelhead fishing in the Great Lakes and Northwest.
“Airflo’s wide range of lines provide me with the tools to meet the challenge of pursuing a variety of species. I go into each day with the confidence of having the upper hand in both casting and fly presentation. And Airflo line designs continually keep pace with the demands to explore fly fishing’s outer limits.” – RK
