Mike Christensen was born, raised and educated (kindergarten through bachelors degree) in Rexburg, Idaho. He was introduced to the fly fishing religion at 11-years-old by his father. Mike feels that like any denomination, fly fishing is best understood by a fellow sufferer. While Mike’s formal learning came by way of East Idaho public schools and BYU-Idaho, his practical education was earned on the Henry’s Fork, South Fork, and Teton River. Often, he would show up to his college classes still in his waders and felt soles.
In 2007 Mike married the love of his then 22 year life, Megan, who was just 18 at the time. She has learned to tolerate Mike’s fervor for fishing and even enjoys a fishing trip with him occasionally. Mike and Megan adore their two kids.
Mike started guiding for Three Rivers Ranch in 2014 and at this point it appears they are gonna keep him around.
