Rick Reed

Originally for Wyoming, Rick moved to the “Big Sky” state for the world-class fly fishing, skiing, and hunting. Rick is no stranger when it comes to guiding anglers and hunters as he has been guiding both before anyone knew what guiding was about. Rick is an independent contractor like most guides in Montana, but he is not like most guides. His knowledge of fly fishing and hunting on Montana’s waters and land surpass the “average” guide. Rick has the patience and will spend the time teaching you the basics from how to hold a rod, casting, line management, knots to releasing a trout properly. Rick goes above and beyond for all his clients and it is not uncommon to find Rick out with clients until dark just to cast a dry fly to rising fish in an evening hatch. Rick has a work ethic that the West was built on and you can be sure he will work hard for you on any day you fish with him! Rick is proficient on the Madison, Gallatin, and Yellowstone Rivers. Rick was voted best guide in “Best of Big Sky” 2019. Rick lives between Big Sky, Montana, and Bozeman, Montana on highway 191.

Rick lives on the Gallatin River between Bozeman, MT and Big Sky, MT. He is certified in CPR and first aid.
