Steve Olufsen was born and raised in Rochester, NY and began his days on the waters of Lake Ontario. Steve picked up fly fishing, with his friend Paul Jacob during their many trips to local fishing spots. Living only ten minutes from streams with huge king salmon, steelhead, and brown trout only made his passion fly fishing grow even stronger.

Founding Reel Action Fly Fishing in 2001 with long time fishing partner Paul was a natural fit. As an owner/operator, Steve manages the sales and marketing for Reel Action. He enjoys marketing trips and travel destinations by using quality pictures and videos. 

Steve has been a NYS guide since 2000 and brings over 15 years of fly fishing experience. He has guided the streams and rivers of western New York for salmon, steelhead, rainbows and brown trout. Steve has traveled to Alaska fly fishing for salmon and rainbow trout, and the Bahamas to stalk bonefish on the flats.

He holds a degree in Environmental Science specializing in Biology and Geography. Steve has worked on fisheries projects including research on restoring yellow perch populations in Lake Michigan at the Great Lakes WATER Institute.
