General Interest
 Join us for a beautiful day of fly fishing on the Clark Fork, Bitterroot, Blackfoot, or Missouri River.  All of our trips are catch & release fly fishing for Brown, Rainbow, and Cutthroat Trout.  The scenery is as spectacular as the fishing is good.  I have been guiding Western Montana for more than 15 years.  In that time I have developed a knack for knowing which river will be fishing best on a given day or time of year.  All float trips are conducted using a Mckenzie style drift boat or a full framed raft depending on the type of water conditions.  The guides and I will taylor your trip based on your desires and abilities.  From beginners to experts we can give you as much or as little instruction as you wish.  We aim for the most enjoyable experience possible.  We love beginners and experts alike and everything inbetween and I will match you up with just the right guide for your needs. check out my blog for more information

My strength as a guide.  I have been an addicted flyfisherman since I was 9 years old.  I have traveled all over the northern U.S. and Canada on fishing expeditions.  From the spring creeks of PA. to the mountain rivers of Montana You will have a very hard time finding someone with as much experience as I have. 

A day on the river with me.  I love dry fly fishing,  many of my regular clients dont even want to hear the word nymph.  With that said I also do what ever it takes with the other half of my fisherman.  My goal each day is to try and catch one or several of the days hatches at a particular stretch of river and at a given time.  Sometimes I like to meet very early and get down river to a particular run for a great trico spinner fall.  Other times I like to start later in the day and stay till dark (10:30 pm) to try and catch a caddis, pale evening dun, rusty spinner fall event.  If you have never experience one of these from 8-10 pm in June or July you havent lived. 

I am a very patient guide yet I do have an intesity that shows up when the fishing gets good.  I tend to work harder than most guides often extending a day if the fishing had been slow most of the day. 

Lunch?  You can have a nice hot grilled lunch riverside or we can have a nice deli sandwhich with some side salads and get back to fishing.  Some I my fisherman like to take a good solid break and have a very nice grilled lunch while others are stuffing down a sandwhich and trying to cast at the same time.  You tell me.  I am happy to go either way.

I am easy going, not intimidating,  I have had some clients that have been reluctant to go on a guided trip due to bad experiences in the past.  I am not one of those guides nor will I hire one.  With me you can expect a wonderful float down the river with as much or as little instruction as you want.  I have been doing this long enough to know that it needs to be enjoyable.

Ask the questions.  Make sure I know what type of fishing you are looking for.  I am very versitale but if there is an area where I am not strong you can bet I know someone who is.  As an Outfitter I hire guides all the time and I can usually find someone that will match up very well with you.  I need to know if you need to be back for an early dinner before I decide to run a double float to avoid the competition.  Communication is the key.  If you need equipment let me know I usually can round up some extra gear and I always have a few extra fly rods on board.

Why am I here on E-bay?

Good question!  While I have had a strong following for many years now I must say that my clients are not getting any younger (I hope none of my regulars read this).  I have been running my own business for 4 years without any advertising and I am thinking it is time to start doing a little.  Since I am always selling fly tying materials etc. on ebay I thought I would give this a try.

Thank you for your time reading this I hope I can take some of you fishing.
