About Us


Montana Flyfishing Connection is a professional guide service formed around the angler – guide relationship. Our close-knit group of guides are passionate about sharing their knowledge with you in the pursuit of great trout. We look forward to getting you connected with Montana’s most spectacular rivers – the Bitterroot, Clarkfork, Rock Creek, Blackfoot, Missouri, Smith, Dearborn, South Fork of the Flathead and many more.


Our mission is to create Montana river experiences that enrich our guests' lives to the greatest extent possible through a level of dedication and work ethic unmatched in our industry - all with a great sense of humor.


The dedication of my core staff makes every trip more professional, better equipped and more successful in every way. This is the real reason that our outfitting business has been so successful over the years. Beyond their loyalty to me, it is the fact that these guys are the kind of people that anyone would want to spend five or ten days on the river with that makes our guests want to come back again and again.
