We’re proud to introduce our second Bluebird Ambassador, Mike Dawkins.
Mike has inspired me since we were in high school together in our hometown of Nashville, Tennessee. From an early age, he was always chasing the next great adventure from hiking through the Great Smoky Mountains, to fly fishing on the Caney Fork River, to leading snow skiing trips.

Today he spends his days as World Cast Anglers’ COO, one of the premier fly fishing companies in North America operating in eastern Idaho and Western Wyoming. And as part of his job, Mike is lucky enough to take clients fishing in some of the most beautiful and remote locations in the world. He shares his passion for the sport with others everyday—and inspires all of us to get outside!
What’s always impressed me about Mike is that when he is passionate about something he not only masters it, but he invests his time in protecting the environment around him. For example, he is currently a board member of the Teton Valley chapter of Trout Unlimited and the Jackson Hole Chapter of Ducks Unlimited.
When Mike isn’t casting a dry fly, he is hiking up the backcountry slopes as an avid telemark skier. His best friend is his black lab Tui, who can always be found on a boat watching Mike fish or retrieving waterfowl and upland birds.
Mike is already inspiring the Bluebird team to get out of the winery, throw on our waders, and get the line wet. We’re incredibly pleased to welcome Mike as our newest ambassador.
