Our instructors have spent countless hours fishing, guiding and instructing individuals.
John Perry, Instructor
Integrity, Passion, Knowledge
I have been guiding Montana’s best rivers since 1981. With a home on Rock Creek and a lodge on the lower Clark Fork, we have been able to provide outstanding service to angling clients from around the world. I think back to when I first created the Bugmeister, and I remember that the guiding community was incredibly small. Now, it is huge and it my sincere hope that our guide school can send competent, qualified guides out into the “real world”. As a certified fly casting instructor I have shared my experience with thousands of people and am so proud to be offering this to new guides. The tradition of guiding must be continued, and the MTFFA guide school can help do that. It is my legacy!
Guiding since 1996, under John Perry’s tutelage until 2006, I have been a student of guiding and the lifestyle that comes with it. I am owner of MOFO Fishing Co and an owner in the MTFFA. I have owned and operated Renegade Fly Fishing Outfitters since 2007. I thank my lucky stars every day that I became a guide and continued in the tradition of so many others.
