Captain Michael mauri

One of the world’s outstanding fly casters, Michael was born and raised in Germany. He caught his first fish at age six in a small stream in Bavaria and, six years later, began concentrating on every facet of the sport of fly fishing. That included education as a technical engineer of aquaculture.

Since 1998, Michael has participated in international shows and conducted single- and double-hand casting workshops around the globe. As a professional fly-fisher, he has guided and taught throughout Europe, Canada, and the United States. Welcoming new challenges, he continuously hones his skills while - at the same time - coming up with new designs for his own products just as he has long done for equipment offered by leading firms in the fly-fishing industry.

Michael is an innovator in all aspects of fly fishing and he created his own unique casting method, the Effective Fly Casting Technique or EFCT. The secret of EFCT fly-casting is natural movement, which makes it easy to learn – whether a beginner, novice, or seasoned casting veteran. Don’t miss an opportunity at shows or otherwise to join one of the most respected instructors in fly fishing and casting including all aspects of single-handed and double-handed spey casting and overhead casting.

Michael offers, year around, guided trips and fly-casting lessons in Stuart, Florida where he and his wife Emily live with their daughter Emma. In addition to guiding, he consults as a design engineer for a leading producer of graphite and fiberglass fishing rods and designs and handcrafts his own brand of fly rods.

Emily mauri

Looking to lay down permanent roots in an area perfect for expanding her family’s business. Emily Mauri, husband Michael and daughter, Emma moved to Stuart, FL in 2016. Emily and her family have been working tirelessly to build up their thriving, year round, all-inclusive fly fishing service, Mauri Flyfishing, LLC.

In her little spare time, Emily became interested in urban farming. This led to a part time job at Ground Floor Farm where she discovered her newfound talent for cooking. As with every experience in life, Emily seamlessly incorporated her growing knowledge into providing a one of a kind trip for clients of Mauri Flyfishing.

The St. Lucie estuary, mere minutes from her family home, is the most diverse saltwater fishery in the United States.  Alarmed at the visible decline of marine life, she vowed to focus her energy into learning more about the state of her local waters. Instantly, she was drawn toward the energy and increasing momentum of the grassroots organization, In December 2017 she elected to put her myriad of personal projects aside in order to devote all of her free time to this worthy cause.

Through her unending efforts, Emily was honored to be given a national platform for her favorite cause by leading outdoor outfitter, Patagonia at several Fly Fishing Show’s across the nation. She is forever grateful to be given the opportunity to spread awareness for a cause so near to her home- and her heart.
