Meet Our Guides

"Having been an outfitter in Southwest Montana for a very long time, I feel we can offer our valued customers some of the very best fly fishing to be found. I have personally selected our guiding staff for their knowledge and personal commitment to every client. They are professionals, which will be very apparent after a day on the water with any of them."

-Tim Tollett, Outfitter #419

If you have ever fished with us before, or perhaps someone you know who has fished with us recommended a specific guide to you, feel free to request a guide when you book a trip with us. We will do our best to book you with that guide provided they have not already been booked with another client.

Mike Bias

Mike is, without a doubt, the bug guru among us. His knowledge of aquatic life and entomology is tempered by his down-to-earth demeanor and personality. He is very passionate about the Big Hole River in particular.

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.

Dan Allen

Dan started working for us back in the 80's. He has a B.S. in fishing (his friends will know how extensive his BS is) and is on the water over 100 days a season. He is a fun guy to fish with, knows where the fish are, and loves to share his knowledge about fish and women on a daily basis.

Cody Benzel

Cody grew up in Dillon and knows the water around southwest Montana like the back of his hand. He is always up for anything, is a hoot to fish with, and can always provide and action-packed, fish-filled day on the water.

Mike Saputo
