After breaking-off my first lunker Bluegill on a Missouri farm pond when I was ten, I have found myself all over the country, with fly rod in hand, trying to fool big fish in beautiful water. When I was 13, I got my first dose of Western fly fishing and have done everything in my power to keep myself in the thick of it. I’m now lucky enough to call both Missoula and Livingston, Montana home. Between breaking-off even more fish, and actually landing a few memorable ones, I ended up with a degree in Aquatic Biology from the University of Montana (which comes in second to Montana State for producing the most fishing guides).
In the time I have spent on the water, I have seen more remarkable things and met more amazing folks than I ever thought I would. I have been lucky enough to have Western Montana as my playground for most of my life. Whether it is the Bitterroot, Madison, Missouri, or Yellowstone, I have lasting memories on all of them.
My primary goal on a fishing trip is to share with my clients the beautiful chunk of heaven I’m fortunate to call home. I want to catch fish as badly as you do, but more importantly, I want teach you something about fishing you may have not learned else where. I’ve learned something new from eccentric Bahamian bone fishing guides and laid back Costa Rican Sailfish guides alike. I’d like to spread the love.
