Overview

Mike Kruise was born and raised in Longmont, CO where he lives today with his wife Vickie, and owns Laughing Grizzly Fly Shop.  Mike learned hunt and fly fish from his father, but perfected his fly fishing skills with his friend Scott Bley as they cut their teeth on the Big Thompson, Poudre, and St. Vrain.
