M.A. (Mack) Martin Jr.

Atlanta Fly Fishing School partner and instructor Mack Martin learned to fly cast with a custom bamboo fly rod given to him at the age of nine by his uncle, while working summers at his shoe store in Windsor, Vermont. The mailman, Win Kenyon, who delivered mail to the store was the Vermont Fly Casting Champion from 1950 to 1955 and taught Mack how to fly cast. This started his interest in fly fishing and later became a life long hobby. Mack has fished from the Bahamas throughout the United States to Alaska and has floated many of the rivers in Alaska and has lead numerous trips to Kodiak Island. He has also fished throughout the NWT of Canada and holds two world records. He is the past president and past education director of the Upper Chattahoochee Chapter of Trout Unlimited and the past  Chairman of the Georgia Council of Trout Unlimited. Mack has also served as the National Leadership Council representative for the Georgia Council of Trout Unlimited from 2014 to 2019.
