What stands in your way of catching the big one?

Ever find yourself on the banks of the Bitterroot River feeling frustrated and discouraged? Perhaps you wonder:

  • Am I casting right? 
  • Is this the best fly to have on the end of my line? 
  • How do I “read” the water to know where to cast?
  • Would it be possible to tie my own fly?

The big one is there.
It's waiting for you.

Even a bad day of fishing is fun. But it’s even better when you have some skills and tools to catch the big one. 

That’s where I can help you. With over 40 years of fishing experience, I can help you tie the perfect fly, learn to cast or even just sell you some hand-crafted flies tied here in Hamilton, MT.



Every single fly I sell I made myself, right here in Hamilton, MT. These are flies that I know work based on 40 years of experience.


Casting Lessons

It’s more than whipping your rod back and forth. There’s a science to it. Let me teach you how on a manicured lawn with targets.

Chuck knows every detail about tying flies. He is a wonderful person to talk to. I had a fantastic time learning about Chuck and picking his mind about what I should use and where I should try. Thank You for sharing your knowledge with use.

Ever since I was driving down the road 40 years ago and saw a man with a big Rainbow trout on the end of his line, I’ve been hooked. Fishing is my joy. But teaching others the skills to fish is my true passion. Come check out my flies and sign up for a class to tie your own flies or take a casting lesson.
