Captain Austin Adduci is the Owner and Head Guide of Grab Your Fly Charters, a fishing guide service located in the Chicagoland area specializing in warm and cold water fishing opportunities of the Kankakee River, Dupage River, and the tributaries of Lake Michigan.

Austin grew up in the South Suburbs of Chicago with a passion for fishing his whole life. Austin picked up his first fly rod at the age of 15 and never looked back. For him fly fishing is the most gratifying way to catch fish even though it’s not the only way.

Austin began guiding in 2009 out of his Maverick Flats boat for Carp and Smallmouth on the South end of Lake Michigan. Things have changed over time, he now runs either a Stealthcraft driftboat or a jet sled on a local river on a day to day basis.

Captain Bill Katzenberger has been on the water his whole life. His passion for fishing started at a young age and has only grown stronger as the years progressed. He has fly fished saltwater to freshwater, Mexico to Canada, and everywhere in between. His obsession for fishing on the fly is endless. Bill's love for smallmouth fishing started, right at home, on the Kankakee River. As his love for the sport developed, he looked for an opportunity to share his passion with others. He now guides out of a Stealthcraft drift boat, on rivers he once waded as a kid.
