Fall is here in a big way. The temps dropped 40 degrees in two days, there is rumor of snow and some of the most fantastic fishing of the entire year. I was on the MO yesterday the baetis are back along with the fish in a big way. Some of our biggest fish are caught this time of year. I can't help but get a little sentimental this time of year. So many awesome people my guides and I have fished with over the season...........After a while you become friends and it's one of my favorite things about this lifestyle. It's far from over yet though, so think about a delicate rise to a well presented BWO, and winter still seems so far away. See you on the water, Brandon

Your either on the bus or your not..........

Its true some people live to fish.... We call it passion. In a recent round of guide talk I heard some people complain "oh well you can do that" "you can guide on the Yellowstone one day and the upper Bitterroot the next because you arent married, don't have kids etc...... It's time to call Bullshit. I do what I do because I love it. I run midnight missions halfway across the state simply because I find nothing more satisfying than hooked jaws and wide smiles.... For me its not about money, or bragging rights it's because I can't do anything else. I live to fish and fish to live and it's just the way its supposed to be. You won't find me or any of my guides sleeping in on our days off. We will be on the water perfecting our craft, for your sake and our sanity........tight lines Brandon p.s. There are people who love the game and dedicate lives to this awesome lifestyle and those who fish for profit...........It shows in the way you spend your days off........

on it goes

Just got done fishing with a great group of guys from pittsburgh. We made the trek to the MO because we have it wired........Why leave big fish to find big fish? Its all about the quality. Pound for pound the hardest fighting rainbows on earth. We'll leave the bighorn and the green for those less fortunate;) Brandon

September on the MO

I have been guiding on the Missouri as of late. Huge fish, no crowds and happy clients. The hoppers are still going and nymphing is productive as well. We landed 27 fish wed. and every one was over 18 inches............where do we go from here? tight lines, Brandon
