Our Guides

Tim Tollett  
The foundation of each and every guided fishing trip starts with your guide.  I have known all of these guys for a long, long time and consider them to be family.  We all fish together when we get the chance and always enjoy each others' company.
As an outfitter, I have been blessed to find such a gifted crew of qualified fishing guides.  Their knowledge, expertise, and tireless positive attitude will make your time with them on the river very productive and most importantly, enjoyable.  Come spend a day with one of our guides on our local waters this season...  You'll see what I mean.

Tim Mosolf (Mo)

Everybody knows Mo.  Not only is the big white beard noticable, but Tim has had more Beaverhead fish in his net than anybody alive - EVER - PERIOD!  Mo has a very relaxed nature, a great sense of humor and more stories about anything you could ever think of.  Mo's been guiding for Frontier Anglers for over 30 years now, and the names of the largest fish are in his personal notebook along with some other nifty doodles and tons of phone numbers.  If you're driving to the Beaverhead you'll pass him on the interstate - but make sure your downstream of Mo on the river or you could have a tough day of fishing!

Mike Bias

Mike has been kicking around southwest Montana for a number of years. His knowledge of aquatic life and entomology is tempered by his down-to-earth demeanor and personality. Mike is passionate about the Big Hole River and is the Executive Director of   The Big Hole River Foundation.When he is not on the river helping clients catch fish he can be found cashing bugs on the Big Hole and Beaverhead rivers. Mike has always told us what his Ph. D. means after his name but we couldn't understand all the technical words so we gave up.

Cody Benzel

Cody is a Dillon native and knows the waters and secret spots the way only a local can.  Cody learned to fly fish on the area rivers, streams and lakes.  We're not sure whether he's a ski bum, or fishing bum, but he's great at doing both.  You can always tell when Cody's guiding because his cliets are laughing and their rods are bent.  When he's not working, you can find him on Wednesday nights trying to see how many "Not Responsible" wings he can eat.  This is Cody's 10th year guiding at Frontier Anglers, but he's been working at the shop before he started to shave! 

Joe Aanes

Joe hails from Great Falls MT, learning how to fly fish on the Missouri River and local off the map streams.  Joe's a true trout bum, and a real "Montana Guy".  He's been guiding anglers on Montana waters before he grew the sweet "Stash" and it's getting a little gray now!  Prior to joining Frontier Anglers 15 years ago, he could be found fishing the Bob Marshall Wilderness, floating the Smith and Missouri Rivers, or exploring the beautiful trout streams of New Zealand.  Joe knows everthing about Montana history, the local flora & fauna, and pretty much everything outdoors.  Joe's a master behind the vise, creating his trout proven popular "Mo Joe" series flies.  If you want a great day on the river with an even greater guy, then Joe's your man.  During the off-season, Joe lives in Sandpoint ID. with his wife Maria, and their two boys; Jacob and Luke.

Scott Allison

Day in and day out, Scott is probably one of the nicest guys you'll find on any river, anywhere in the world.  He is a ton of fun to fish with, and his passion for fishing the waters around here is pretty evident. 

Eli McIntosh

Eli is a blast to fish with and provides a wealth of knowledge for waters near and far.
  A devoted family man, Eli loves to teach anglers the tricks of fly fishing.  His easy going attitude make a day of fishing with Eli a real pleasure. 

Brian Scott
Brian is one of those guys that feels like a friend from the minute you meet him.  He's our main guy on the Missouri River, even though he lives on the banks of the Big Hole River.  Brian's passions include chasing critters through the Montana woods in the fall, fly fishing in New Zealand, and catching the largest trout that swim in Montana waters.  Brian is married to his wife Pat, and he's been a Montana fishing guide for over 20 years.

Dave Evans
Dave has been fishing and guiding the waters of southwest Montana for many years.  His relaxed and fun attitude make any day on the water with Dave a real pleasure.
