Special thanks go to our outfitter, Doug Brady of Fly Treks. He met us daily to insure that our days were smooth and fun.
Without a doubt, our banquet is our money maker for the year, but next is our memberships. If you have not done so, please renew your membership this month. We will be mailing out new cards in April along with some decals. Each year these funds go back into our local waters to maintain or improve trout habitat. We will continue to work closely with FWP and Montana TU to keep our streams fishable and accessible.
You can see Craig is committed to working hard to preserve and protect wild tout, wild trout habitat, and wild places for all future genreations!
Mathews came to West Yellowstone, Montana in 1979 and became the town's police chief, his wife Jackie a police dispatcher. In 1980 they founded Blue Ribbon Flies employing handicapped fly tiers and tying flies wholesale for major retail outlets. In 1982 Craig retired from police work and Blue Ribbon Flies opened up their first full-line retail store.
Don't forget... Tomorrow April 5th Sweetgrass Rod Designer Dave Delisi will be here for our general public meeting at FWP building starting at 7pm. Make sure to click the link above to learn more.
