When not guiding for lake trout, I'm often stalking trout in rivers and creeks with dry flies. Floating, wading, and camping along the water. I take more time off during the brief Rocky Mountain summer to enjoy this life-long persuit. Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana are the usual destinations. Sometimes in winter, I'm chasing tarpon in Mexico or Florida when time and funds allow.

The Beaverhead-The Best

Low water here, easy wading, and still full of big beautiful trout that love to eat dry flies.  If one were to design a tail water trout river . . . maybe just move the interstate!  But hey, its Montana.  Everybody knows the best rivers in Montana are right next to a highway!

The Quiet Slough

Good PMD hatches every morning, water covered with PMD spinners, rising fish in every run, just enough challenge to make it fun, and no crowds
