Home: Oka, Quebec
Boat: KingFisher 2025 Flex Sport

I'm from Oka, QC, on the shore of the Ottawa River and the St. Lawrence Seaway—both my favorite playgrounds. I also fish New York state and Ontario. I consider myself a multi-species professional angler, specializing in musky. The past seven years with Team Rapala has given me the opportunity to grow not only my fishing skills but also my marketing skills to help my sponsors. I look forward to a long relationship with KingFisher—the toughest aluminum brand in the game. I can't wait to be ice free again because that's where you'll find me until the last day of the season, trophy fishing. We'll see you at the shows. Drop by to say hello.

Capt. Andy Martin

Home: Brookings, Oregon
Boat: 2825 Coastal Express

I'm Andy Martin, a full-time river guide and saltwater fishing captain. As long as I can remember, fishing has been my passion. I grew up fishing the Chetco, Rogue and Smith rivers, and had my first drift boat long before I was old enough to drive a car.

I'm fortunate to have one of the greatest jobs in the world. I have the opportunity to take people fishing almost every day, and I work hard to make sure my customers have the ultimate fishing experience. The rivers I fish in Southern Oregon and Northern California, as well as the coastal waters of Alaska, are among the most scenic areas of the world, and have some of the best fishing anywhere. I provide the best equipment including a KingFisher 2825 Coastal Express, and make sure you have an easy-going trip with the best possible chance at catching fish.

Aside from putting you on fish, my goal is to make sure you have an enjoyable time on the water. I'm friendly, more than willing to pass on information about the rivers and fish, and give a full effort in making your trip one you will always remember. There are a lot of choices when it comes to fishing guides in Southern Oregon, Northern California and Alaska but you'll never be disappointed with us. Visit us at www.wildriversfishing.com.

Boat: KingFisher 2025 Falcon

Danny has been an avid angler since his early child hood. Danny grew up in a small quaint community in the Similkameen Valley of Princeton BC. His family's farm is nestled against the Similkameen River. This is where Danny and his older brother Spencer adopted the passion for fishing.

Danny has lived in all parts of British Columbia which included Cranbrook, Kamloops, Abbotsford, Merritt, Penticton and Kelowna. He is now settled down in West Kelowna with his beautiful wife Marina who shares his passion of fishing.

Danny is very active within multiple fish and wildlife conservation groups within the BC community. He loves to share his love and passion for fishing with others. Sharing his discoveries, adventures and tips on the water with fellow Anglers is just as equal of a passion of his as fishing. Danny encourages all Anglers to share the sport of fishing with the younger generation so they too can have those special moments in life fishing with their fathers, brothers and all loved ones.
