The only way to describe the intensity and excitement exhibited by Rick for fishing, is to compare it to Christmas. Picture a child covering their head at night to make sure Santa doesn’t see that they are not sleeping, to waking up at 4am wondering why the grownups aren’t up yet, the anticipation is palpable. Rick began fly fishing when he was 9, begging his grandfather, Gumpy, to take him to his favorite fishing hole. His dad added fuel to the fire when he bought him his first Winston rod and Hardy reel. 40 plus years later Rick still can’t wait to get out on the water and fish. Rick has been infusing this same enthusiasm for fly fishing into guiding for the past 11 seasons on Southwestern Montana rivers. In the winter, he spends his time tying flies, teaching classes locally, and preparing for the season ahead. Rick has been married for 30 years, has 5 kids, one daughter-in-law, and a grandson. This is Rick’s dream job, passing on his knowledge and enthusiasm for fly fishing to others.
