Captain Dan is known for his fly fishing expertise and ability to navigate challenging river stretches, providing an educational experience for anglers at any level.

Captain Daniel Nealy, who owns and operates the service, grew up in Southern Michigan with a love for freshwater fishing. His passion for river fishing developed while studying at Central Michigan University, where he particularly enjoyed fishing for Smallmouth Bass on the Chippewa River. A trip to the Pere Marquette River introduced him to Steelhead fishing, resulting in a day of catching Steelhead and a trophy Brown Trout. This experience hooked him on fishing in Michigan rivers. Daniel now lives in Alma with his wife Aleisha, their three dogs—Berkley, Caddis, and Stella—and two cats, Orvis and River. Besides running his guide service, he is also involved in youth basketball tournaments and officiating in the winter.

Fishing trips offered by Dan Nealy’s Fishing Buddies Guide Service include options for targeting Bass, Pike, and Trout, with trip durations of 4 ½, 6, and 7 hours.

For Salmon or Steelhead, river fishing for Salmon is available from mid-September to the end of October, and Steelhead fishing runs from mid-October to early May.

The boat used is a 16-foot Hyde Drift boat, which can accommodate up to two people, ensuring a personal fishing experience. Whether you’re looking to fish for Bass, Trout, Pike, Salmon, or Steelhead, Dan Nealy’s Fishing Buddies Guide Service offers trips that cater to your needs.
