Beau grew up in Billings Montana, 90 miles from the Big Horn River.  Luckily, his father was one of many great Montana fly fishing guides, which gave me the opportunity to learn from one of the best.

Around the age of seven, he learned how to manage and control a fly rod in the front yard of his parents’ home.  Once he conquered casting, he graduated to rowing a drift boat, tying flies, studying hatches, and the most important, learning how to read water.  At eleven, he started traveling with his father to all of his hot spots around Montana, further expanding his fly-fishing knowledge. This is when he decided he wanted to become a guide and follow in his father’s footsteps.

His business goal is to give his clientele opportunities to fish in a diverse number of places. Many years of experience has taught him that no matter how good the fishing is in one location people will always want a new experience.
