The Griz Bio

Hi. I am Mike "The Griz" Ritz. My love of fishing began when I was four years old fishing with my father in Montana. I have continued that tradition fishing with my son Charles since he was two years old.

I have a degree in biology. I did my first television show from Alaska in 1979. I started as a hunting guide in Montana at the age of sixteen. I have since been a fishing guide in Wyoming, Utah, Montana, Alaska and all over Mexico. I have hunted all over Africa and have fished in Brazil, Argentina, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Peru, all over Mexico and the US.

I have been in Mexico since 1985. I am currently an adviser to the Mexican Government. My television show, Adventures South of the Border is currently airing on MegaCable in Mexico, Wild TV in Canada and Azteca in the US. We just added shows in Argentina, Venezuela, Brazil, and Chile. I am also co-host on Fish Talk Radio and am a contributor to five magazine publications.

Oh yeah...We just signed to go world wide with the Travel Channel!
