has more than a 40 year investment in fishing, floating
and wading the waters of western Montana.
He is intimately acquainted with the surrounding fisheries
and their corresponding ecologies.
It is his passion and enthusiasm for the art of fly fishing,
a respect and knowledge of trout habitat,
and the ability to expertly instruct the technical
aspects of fly fishing that clients appreciate as they
return to western Montana and Wapiti Waters.
Wapiti Waters can fish one angler or groups of many anglers. We fish with a skilled pool of the finest guides in western Montana. We know them, like them and stand by their professionalism and character.
The Big Hole offers some truly sublime angling for the dry fly purist and great “underneath” fishing for the nymph, wet fly, or streamer enthusiast. Once visited, one will always yearn to return to it season after season.
The inspiring feature of the Blackfoot River is its stable, relatively undeveloped shores and benches. The river flows through a series of shady canyons most easily accessible by boat.
Characterized by huge shelving riffles, long quiet pools, as well as reaches of boulder pocket water, “the Fork” is an angler’s paradise of variety. Some of the toughest, strongest trout anywhere are found in these waters.
