Missoula, Montana

I have been avidly fly fishing for 30 years and grew up with a backyard trout stream in rural Pennsylvania. After traveling to Montana at a young age I became obsessed with the idea of guiding in the West. I now live that dream in Montana, guiding over 120 days a year on the rivers of Missoula. The pursuit of a trout rising for a dry fly was soon overtaken by the sight of a giant bull red exploding for a fly and a new passion was born for me. I now spend my fall and winter guiding fly fishing trips for red fish in Louisiana. Fly fishing has always captivated me because it can never truly be mastered. Partaking in the excitement of someone else catching a fish is now the ultimate reward for me.
