    Hi everyone. Heading back to Bozeman this week for my annual pilgrimage and wanting to get away from the usual suspects (G, M, and Y) I have the topo map out but it's honestly daunting with all the options. I tried smaller water last year with little success. Some of it was promising on the...

    I was lucky enough to be invited to Butte, by a buddy that I served with in the Navy, in mid July for some awesome trout fishing. I was able to hit up Rock Creek, Big Hole, Lake Agnes, and a few other undisclosed spots and absolutely loved it. I have a week off towards the end of October...

    Background. After guiding, working, and playing in the outdoors of the Rocky Mountain West and Alaska for many years, I consider myself fortunate to have never had a death in any of my guide trips or camps. We came close once with a guy who had a heart attack and fell off his horse. Statistics...

    Hey guys. I hope to be doing a road trip from Montana to the area around Riffle lake in May. This is more of a hang gliding than a fishing trip, but would love to fish some if the flying weather is not good. I will be camping and or staying near Morton or Glenoma. I see there is some flowing...

    Butte, Montana. If you’ve never spent time there this post won’t mean much. And to be fair, Butte has filed down it’s rough edges a bit in the past 20 years or so. St Paddy’s Day is still pretty crazy and the Berkley pit is still so toxic geese die from landing on it. It’s an old mining town...

    A client is selling their wonderful place on the Clark Fork, not too far from St. Regis. This would be an awesome fly fishing/outdoor recreation home for a guide or a family that loved the outdoors and trout fishing. Thought I would pass this along to you in case any of your guide friends were...

    Montana got a lot of snow around Christmas. It pretty much stayed cold so all that snow got packed down on many roads, parking lots, sidewalks etc. Right now it's raining on top of that ice. Lots of people taking headers. One guy was hanging on to his car (a small car) for support and it started...

    Due to fires in August, we postponed our trip until September 16th-22nd. Very unfortunate really because it was the peak of dry fly fishing and nice and toasty.Anyway, being the streamer junkie I am, I thought it would be good because the weather and water would both cool and maybe put them on...

    I have a business trip to the Dillon/Butte area next week and I am trying to arrange all the customer visits so that I can go fishing for half a day or so. I'll have very limited equipment with me: tenkara rod, lanyard with a few flies and hip boots. Have never been in the area so I was hoping...

After watching this video from Redington, I knew I had to go: Gig Harbor Flyshop is offering a group trip about the same time I...

He is lightly experienced in fly fishing and I got him a decent 6wt outfit from Cabelas, but want to send him with a box of bugs. Not sure how much fishing...
