Looking for the best-guided fly fishing trip in Montana?

At Frontier Anglers, because we believe the fishing in Southwest Montana is some of the best in the state, it is only fitting that we employ the best guides to reflect that. Our guides are professional, patient, knowledgeable, and above all, tons of fun to spend a day on the water with.

SHAUN JESZENKA

Originally from Missoula, MT, Shaun has been an outfitter and guide for over 30 years in Southwest Montana. Shaun became the new Owner of Frontier Anglers in January of 2019.

"Twenty years ago I would have called you crazy if you told me I was going to own Frontier Anglers, but here I am. I have really enjoyed continuing the Frontier Anglers tradition of providing service to everyone from just learning how to fish to even the most experienced angler."  – Shaun Jeszenka

JOE AANES

Joe is one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet, on or off the stream. His fishing knowledge and background comes from years of guiding on the Missouri and now 20 years fishing and guiding the Beaverhead, Big Hole, and Madison Rivers.

NICK JOHNSTON

Nick Johnston is a fourth-generation Montanan who got his start guiding in central Montana and moving to southwest Montana in 2014. Nick leaves Frontier Anglers in the fall and guides elk hunters. Nick also holds a business degree from Montana State University.

DAN BONAR

Dan is from southwest Nebraska, where he grew up fishing and hunting with his family. In his early 20s, Dan moved to Alaska and caught the fly fishing bug. Dan worked, and guided the next seven years in Alaska, and Colorado, before moving to Montana. He worked the Yellowstone area for a bit before landing in Dillon. Dan has been a staple here at Frontier Anglers for six years now; three of which as a staff guide. Dan is one of those guides with unlimited patience, a great attitude, and a smile you won’t soon forget. In the fall, Dan leaves us to guide pheasant hunting in South Dakota.

Will Larson

Born in Missoula and most recently a graduate of Montana Western University here in Dillon, Will has stayed on to guide with us and we hope he never leaves.  Will can be found fishing year round, often after or before work as well as all winter drilling holes through the ice.  He is a hard worker as well as a knowlegeable native Montana fishing guide.
